New Ideas About Background Patterns and Fills


I don't know about you but when I start machine quilting the backgrounds and fills on my quilt tops, I have way toooo much ambition and not enough time. 

If you are like me it is tough to figure out background fills that don't take a lot of time to mark and stitch yet, still have the proper density. 

I like to quilt as I go, but sometimes wait until the end, then go back and do the fills, mainly because I haven't decided what to do.

...And when I don't have a plan I end up OVER-QUILTING! 

When I started out I used the same old patterns over and over. Spent hours marking on the dining room table lining up 2-3 rulers at a time. It took a lot of experience, several backaches, and over-quilting to realize that I should create some patterns that I could add or subtract lines, adjusting the density for the size and overall look and feel of the quilt top.

Now that I have nearly 20 years of machine quilting experience I felt it was time for some Essential Background and Border Stencils. They work with all quilt styles from Traditional Baltimore Albums, can't get more traditional than that, to Modern Quilts. And a lot of my students have been asking for stencils as well. So I decided to give you the Line Dance Series.

Hexi Quilts and Machine Quilting Patterns

As you remember I posted a video on how I used the Terry Twist® Templates / Rulers to machine quilt a beautiful Hexi Quilt. There are just too few Hexi Machine Quilting Patterns out there.

The funny thing was I was just going to do edge-to-edge, but love the fabrics tooooo much and decided to use my TT Rulers since they go with just about everything.



I got a lot of request for the machine quilting pattern I used. So as a gift, I made it into a PDF file for you to download. Use it with your Terry Twist Rulers and Stencils. You will be taken to the download page. Just click on the PDF image.
