Do you recall these small pieces?
I shared with you that designing and sewing them was addictive! And I hardly could stop at only a few designs: I made designs with 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, and 20 petals.
And then for each design, I had to make a few variations: 5 for most of them, fewer for the 4 and 6-petal designs.
All my designs measure 14”; this will be my new wholecloth quilt pattern and 20” designs will be available too.
I had so much fun choosing fabrics, combining batting layers and sewing with different colors and weights of thread.
Let’s take a look:
- extremely easy to sew!
- 14 rosettes with enough space between them to make transferring the design on fabric and sewing easy.
- I doubled the number of rosettes and the space between them is half as in the previous design
- a little more work but it so worth it!!
- rosettes with a twist!
- again- very easy to sew
- rosettes with a twist and 3D look!
- the space between the rosettes become smaller and smaller as you sew from the center toward the outside.
A little more attention is needed when sewing the last rosettes, as they are very close to each other, but I made sure to make it doable, even for the smallest size: 14”.
Design #5 – a square design.
Design #6 is still in the works.
What do you think?
I think it is the perfect opportunity for beginner quilters to practice free motion quilting more; and for advanced quilters- something QUICK, EASY, FUN, and RELAXING !
Have a great sewing week.
