Friday Quilting Giveaway!


Quilting giveaway hosted by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean

This week’s quilting giveaway….

is going to be a FREE download.  I want everyone to know how special and vital you all are to the people in your life.  I sometimes think we forget about this.  So… know you are needed and if not now, someday will appreciated for all you do.  With that on my mind I want to give this quilt pattern called Red Tulip Basket to everyone today.

Quilting Giveaway featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa BongeanThis little baby measures 16 “x 18″.  It is sooooooo adorable…the size makes it so you have to look at it and and say…”How small are those pieces?”   Then add Linda’s beautiful quilting and your got yourself a little masterpiece. I know some of you can do this kind of quilting.. and some will do simple cross hatch quilting and it will look good too!  Needs to be about every half inch though….  I am hoping to see this done in some different color ways from some of you.  I myself, will probably make a couple of white tulip blocks.  Maybe a little 4 block quilt.  There are lots of possibilities with this little guy than what you see here….Quilting Giveaway featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa BongeanIf you have your 1/2″ finished Triangle papers you will be so happy.  I hate trying to trim blocks down to 1″.  But if you need 1/2″ Triangle papers we have them.  Remember they are in the small variety packs as well where you have 4 sizes in those.

Half Square Triangle Paper Videos

Here are a couple of quick videos on how to use Primitive Gatherings Triangle Papers…Half Square Triangle Paper Videos featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean

Sewing the starched two fabrics right sides together…paper on top of the light…shorten stitch length to half of what you normally stitch at..I go to 1 on my Juki….Stitch all the dashed lines…

Trim on all the solid lines….make sure you have a nice small ruler…

Flip them to all the dark triangles are facing up…press them using lots of steam….

I cannot get the last video to load…will try again or make another post…

but the last post is removing the paper…hold it near the stitching with your non dominant hand…push the paper triangle back with your dominant hand and pull it away from down near the stitching in the center of the paper triangle…

sorry but I really tried to get this all in one spot…I will keep trying tomorrow! Lisa
