Which is why I happened to glance at the instructions for a quilt show two quilts are in next month and realized they need to be sent TODAY! For some reason I was thinking it was next week!
So while I go build long narrow boxes for them to be shipped in (rolling is better than folding), you can enjoy this video on Pointy Maze.
This video was sponsored by From Daisy to Paisley, a book of beginner free motion quilting designs. Have the best 50 designs at your fingertips and next to your machine with this spiral bound mini book!
Difficulty Level - Intermediate. Like many of the designs I've been sharing lately, there are a couple other designs it is based on that you can stitch first for practice. Start by stitching Pointy Paisley and Sharp Angled Maze.
Once you get the hang of those two designs, you'll be ready to stitch Pointy Maze because it's really a combination of the two.
Filler Design Type - Pivoting. This design starts with a spiral, but then you return to your starting point, pivot and echo that spiral repeatedly. To continue the design all you have to do is travel stitch along the outer edge of the last echo and stitch off in a new direction with a new spiral.
Directional Texture - All Directions. With all the straight lines and sharp angles, this design will really catch your eye!
Suggestions for Use - How about combining Pointy Maze and some smooth flowing designs to create an interesting table runner? Just take a long piece of black fabric and mark simple lines to separate the spaces where different fillers will go. Then have fun filling in this quilt with your favorite designs!
