Carolyn Forster shares with us this traditional utility quilting design that can be used on quilts both ancient and modern in design and she loves to work in thicker threads as big stitch quilting.
In this lovely workshop Carolyn shows you a variety of quilts on which this traditional allover pattern has been worked.
Great for Beginners
She also shows you how to create your own pattern, from everyday household objects, to use on your own quilts. It is an all-over design that works well with both traditional and modern patchwork quilts. It is also easy for beginners as, surprisingly, it can be worked from the outside of the quilt inwards – which is very unusual.
Usually worked in large stitches, this is a design that is also ergonomically easy elbow quilting as it uses our natural drawing of a curve rather than forcing us to quilt in a straight line.
