New Class Sample-Ultimate Shape/Ultimate Stencils

This class sample was just finished up this afternoon.  It's still a little rough around the edges as the binding needs to be completed, pressing done and threads clipped.

I love to teach my students how they can very easily create a beautiful, heirloom style quilted wholecloth or pieced quilt by repeating one or two shapes and filling in with a simple background.  

For this class sample I used pink and gray Cherrywood 6" squares.  I used the
6" Ultimate Shape inside all the blocks.  Half of the blocks used the Ultimate Borders flower motif and the stars were drafted using the Ultimate Stencil.  

I also talk about the importance of creating sunshine and shadow in your quilt and this can be very easily done with simple background fillers.  I used micro-echoing and little bubbles to create my "shadow" so my "sunshine" stars and flowers popped.  Superior Threads' Kimono Silk was used for all the background fill.  Hobbs Tuscany Wool Batting was used.

Look at the HUGE difference in the Before-After the background work was added!


Hugs, Cindy :)
