When beautiful embroidery motifs are stitched into the fabric of your piecing, so too are your style and skill! Let quilt and fabric designer Amanda Murphy help you choose colors, fabrics and the right stabilizer for fabulous results. Plus, learn to make three quick projects—two pillows and a table runner—that each lead into their own quilt. You'll create the North Star quilt, where gorgeous embroidered stars extend into pieced points at the middle of each block. Then take a stroll with the Garden Walk quilt, where vibrant embroidered flowers grow between columns of kaleidoscope blocks. And be sure to bask in the Radiance quilt, with its centered embroidery motifs, partial Dresdens and set-in triangles.
Meet Amanda Murphy and jump right in to making the North Star Pillow.
Take the techniques you learned in the previous lesson and apply them to making a lovely embroidered North Star quilt.
Start a new small project with intricate piecing and embroidered flowers.
Transfer the techniques you learned to a larger project and make the Garden Walk quilt.
Create another lovely pillow that boasts quarter-dresden pieces and lacy embroidery.
Finish the final project of the class: the elegant Radiance quilt.
