Don’t feel like making 9-patches? Don’t worry, just quilt them! [Do make sure in this case the length and width of the block are divisible by 3 for the 9-patches.]
Using the same concept, I have also quilted the outline of applique shapes on blocks for extra visual effects when I don’t feel like actually doing the applique. You can click here to read about my “mark without marking” method when quilting the applique shapes.
Easy peasy, isn’t it? I hope this gives you more ideas on “what to quilt” on your quilts!
Thanks for stopping by! I shall catch up with you tomorrow.
The freezer paper “marking” comes in so handy. I used it here ( http://treadlemusic.wordpress.com/2013/04/27/hammers-and-nails-and/ ) for the “dog bones” that I quilted in the triple border. Cutting multiples of the bones helped me to space them in a pleasing manner. Freezer paper….it’s definitely a “good thing”!! Hugs, SSAB
I like the idea if using freezer paper as a template. Thanks for the “easy peasy” tip.
This is what I love about quilting!! There is always something new to discover and quilters are great at sharing! Love the nine patch quilting.
Wendy you are always helpful to quilters, with ideas & inspiration.
Your quilting is always so beautiful and I love reading the insights you share in your Thread Talks, Wendy. Thank you.
