Jacquie will also walk you through traveling techniques for fluid concentric circles, triangles and rectangles, and reveal her magic formula for striking spiral motifs that are simple to stitch. Twig, leaf and Southwestern-inspired designs are up next, as you discover an innovative reverse-stitching technique that alleviates the need to turn your entire quilt. Finally, find out how to mark traditional templates to quilt dynamic curved motifs, and add elegant clamshells and flowers to your repertoire.
