The winner of this giveaway is Sharon Krulitz! Congratulations, Sharon! Send me your address and I’ll get your prize on its way!
So a question in my Facebook Group, Quilting with Amanda Murphy, the other day reminded me that there was a Jubilee quilt that I never blogged about. Actually I never even photographed! Whoops! So I’d like to belatedly share Technicolor in the reds and golds of Jubilee!
This one is super simple (in reality is is a huge wedge-quilt) and it just glowed one it was done! It was quilted in Aurifil thread on my BERNINA Q24 but it would actually be just as easy to execute this one on a domestic machine by quilting around the circles and then quilting the liens that radiate out from the center. What really makes the quilting here is the contrast between the straight line quilting and the free-motion. Really the free-motion could be anything from meanders to paisleys to just loosely following the design on the fabric, which is what I did here. It is the CONTRAST with the straight line quilting that creates the energy here.
One of the best things about this pattern is that once you create the wedges for one quilt, you are left with the reverse of those wedges so you can make a second quilt just with the addition of background fabric!
In fact, when I made this quilt I was left with a set of wedges that I’m going to give away – details below.
This looks so different from the original Technicolor pattern I made in Free-Motion Fantasy, doesn’t it? It is always amazing what color can do…
If you are lucky enough to have a local quilt shop you can order the pattern through them, because I always like to support them if possible! If you don’t have a local shop you can find the printed pattern here or the PDF pattern here. (PDF patterns are 25% off for CYBER MONDAY in my shop using the code THANKFUL.)
So that is it – now for the giveaway. Just comment below telling me about your favorite quilting notion. The one you can’t live without. A winner will be chosen randomly from the comments. Just to get you started, mine might be my weighted seam ripper. LOL but seriously it is! One entry per person please. This contest will be open until midnight this Saturday, December 1st.
In the meantime – happy quilting!
