Think Big :: Tilt-A-Whirl

By |July 22nd, 2015|finished quilt, Think Big|0 Comments

Tilt-a-Whirl is a perfect introduction to pieced curves. The units are nice and large, so the curve is gentle, and not too challenging to stitch up. I've loved incorporating more curves into my patchwork the last year or so, and hope that you will too! Photo Credit: Martingale/Brent Kane The best part about [...]

Think Big :: Moving Mosaic

Easy to customize and fat quarter friendly! Photo Credit: Martingale/Brent Kane The best part about Think Big, is all the options. I [...]

Connections is one of my favorite blocks, for all the details included in the block. It's mostly squares and rectangles, but there is movement and a few angles worked in. The best part about Think Big, is all the options. I broke it down into charts, to walk you through the math, so that you [...]
