Think Big :: Intersections

By |July 23rd, 2015|finished quilt, Think Big|0 Comments

Intersections is a collection of squares and rectangles, making a fun arrangement of color.

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

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

Moving Mosaic is one of the more complex patterns in Think Big. I went back and forth in the planning stages as to what size I was going to make of this quilt, because I knew it was going to be a time consuming project! In the end I decided to make it a king [...]

Think Big :: Mod Pod

By |July 22nd, 2015|finished quilt, Think Big|1 Comment

Puzzling is so much fun to make, and simple too! I walk you through making the flying geese units, then you just have to sew rectangles together to form a block. Easy to customize and fat quarter friendly! Photo Credit: Martingale/Brent Kane The best part about Think Big, is all the options. I [...]

Think Big :: Connections

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 [...]
