Carmelized Sawblades

Project Description

What are you most proud of? My quilt was selected to be in a book they published and won 3rd place. I was very pleased with the colors, setting and quilting design I selected. What advice would you give someone starting this project? There is a simplified version of this which I teach called Ice Sawblades. It is a very doable project especially with my freezer paper piecing technique.

What you will need

  • Cotton fabrics
  • batting
  • cotton and polyester thread
  • synthetic cording

They are just quilted in with different colors of thread and a very dense "scribble" stitch.
