Welsh Inspirations Quilting Motif

Welsh Inspirations Quilting Motif

The Welsh Inspirations Quilting Motif looks a lot more complicated than it really is! You should have some hand quilting skills, but it is certainly not necessary to be a pro in this field. Actually, this might be just the project for you to practice your hand quilting. If you feel that the entire pattern is slightly too ambitious for you, consider just doing the inner circle with the six large leaves....

Edgy Meandering

Edgy Meandering

Quilters have told us that they find it difficult making real "sharp" corners when free-motion machine quilting. If you face the same problems, this pattern might be right for you to get into corners. Basically, it is a variety of the basic meandering pattern, just with "sharp" corners.

Feathered Bean

Feathered Bean

This small free motion pattern fits perfectly into small or larger squares. We think that it resembles a single bean with feathers on each sides, therefore the outlandish name.

Carnation

Carnation

The inspiration for this simple free-motion machine quilting motif is a patch of carnations in Johann's parents' garden in Austria. While weeding and pruning the rose bushes, Jutta had a casual look down towards the ground and suddenly saw quiltlines everywhere....

Fleur de Lys

Fleur de Lys

For the original Rot-Weiss quilt, we used a commercial quilting stencil which looks like the cross of four Fleur de Lys, a very French symbol.There are many beautiful stencils out there which would be suitable for this quilt. Choose a self contained motif appropriate for machine quilting (no “over-under-effects” as is frequently the case e. g. in Celtic designs)...

Zooming in

Zooming in

It took us quite a while to find a name for this fairly easy and straightforward free-motion quilting pattern. In the end, we decided on “Zooming in” although it should be more appropriately named “Zooming in and out again”. We hope that it will become clearer from the following instructions why this longer title would more aptly describe the pattern...

Herzstück

Herzstück

As with the Spitzenstücke quilt, the name of its quilting pattern is also a play on words in German. Herzstück could be interpreted as “heart piece”, but usually denotes the core of something. The inspiration came from the patterns on the fabrics we used in the quilt which were created by Sunprinting. The faux lace created very interesting contrasts on the fabrics and by outline quilting them, this contrast was even more emphasized resulting in a 3D effect...

60° Double Grid (Quilting Motif)

60° Double Grid (Quilting Motif)

The 143 Pyramids quilt is quilted entirely by hand which we found quite appropriate for a quilt consisting largely of original 1930s fabrics. However, the very lively prints which make up the entire quilt centre made it clear from the start that a complicated quilting pattern would be casting pearls where they couldn’t be properly appreciated. A little research into typical 1930s quilting patterns showed several grid solutions which we changed into a double grid based on the omnipresent 60°...
