Are you ready for a new longarm quilting video tutorial? You may remember the last video showing how to quilt the Daffodils design (if you need a refresher, click here to watch the video again). My newest design, called Twin Tulips, is a variation of those simple elements. Check out the video below.
In the video, I was quilting inside a 2 inch sashing space. Within that space, I used my mechanical chalk pencil to add lines every 2 inches. This created a series of 2 inch squares within the sashing. I like adding these registration marks to keep my designs nice and even.
Quilting the twin tulips is very simple. You’ll just swoop from one corner of your square to the other. Then repeat it within the tulip you’ve quilted to make a twin. It’s that easy! This is one of those designs where I can get into a groove with the quilting. If you are quilting twin tulips in a border or sashing that turns a corner, be sure to watch how I quilted around the corner in the video. Once again, it’s helpful to mark a registration line with a chalk pencil or fabric marker.
This design is so sweet. Don’t you think it would be perfect on a baby quilt? Give it a try and share your pictures with me on Facebook or Instagram!
