Happy New Year to you all!
Let’s start these ‘Roaring Twenties’ with some new tutorials based on the Wishbone Quilting pattern with some Ribbon Candy thrown in too.
In the previous post I shared two options of alternating a large and small wishbone. But there are more options, of course!
The first one is really dense and consists of a large, medium and small wishbone being repeated from large to small and back. It may look more structured if you widen the loops. Is there anybody willing to try ?
For my taste it is a big too uneven and messy, so I tried repeating the wishbone before moving on the another size. This, I like much better! You can watch me draw it by clicking on the image below. You will be directly taken to YouTube.
You can have some fun with premarking a shape like a circle and let your wishbones touch that outline. To me, this looks like a string of beads or Christmas baubles.
I really like this next idea of combining a large and small wishbone and let them overlap. A wishbone inside of a wishbone as it were. Click on the image below to see me draw it.
Ohhh, and I really like this next one as well! Again a big and small wishbone alternated but with a bit more breathing space between them. Click on the image below to see me draw it.
The last animated tutorial for today is a combination of Wishbone and a Ribbon Candy. I drew the large Ribbon Candy first and added a medium wishbone inside of the spaces. Click on the image below to see me draw it.
Changing the width between each of the curves of the Ribbon Candy, gives you more options to place the Wishbone.
You can even go as complex as you want… but it will be a densely quilted piece.
All of the samples were (hand guided) quilted on my longarm HandiQuilter Avante, stitch regulated, 12 stitches per inch. Each pattern is 2 inches high.
So ladies and gents… enough inspiration to get you going on your domestic machines , those midarms machines or even the longarms. Let them purr!
