Happy Accidents with Patterns and Designs

Sometimes you just don't see it. A simple little machine quilting pattern can be so much more.

If you have the Terry Twist Stencils or Templates let's take another look at what they can do for you. Here the 2" and 4" TT radiate and nest to form this great little block pattern that is a snap to do yet it looks so complicated....it is not.

Redoing my samples for upcoming machine quilting classes gave me some time to play. And Voila...

Take some time to play with your favorite stencils and templates in your studio :)

Another Block Design with the Terry Twist just messing around

 Check out both the Terry Twist Stencil and Ruler Sets

If you have the stencils this is the 9" 9-Patch Square using its' 3" Terry Twist Pattern Design. It is also easy to create using the Template Rulers since you have it in the 3".

I laid it out on the edges of the block and then continued it on the other side of the seam, just for fun :) to see what it would look like. 

Interesting pattern on point with a few machine quilting free motion feathers thrown in.

Since it is asymmetrical it is very forgiving indeed. 

Hope you try it.

If you are a Terry Twist Fan here is a new border design

This just may be the solution for a great machine quilting border pattern. Good ol' Terry Twist.

Back to work on my class samples. Thought this would be a good time to make fresh machine quilting designs for upcoming classes. And just doodling around and another designs appears :)
