Thanks once again, Amy, for creating a place for us all to come and share.
"Chain Reaction in Figs"
I first saw this pattern at Quilt Market several years ago, and fell in love with it . . . more about the pattern here
stacked coin design on the back
You can see this new line of Fig Tree fabrics featured on the designer's blog in this post
I love this pantograph design by Beany Boy quilts for Willow Leaf Studio, but I don't have a long-arm. So, I had to transfer the design onto my quilt.
For the first row, I tried tracing the pattern onto thin paper
then sewing through it
but then I had to do this: (which took for ever!)
so I decided to make a stencil . . .
the process went by much faster after that
you can read about my adventures quilting it here
since then, I have come across a system of using netting to transfer a design for quilting, eliminating having to make a stencil (more to come in a future post about that)
