Day 95 - Jagged Cosmos

I hope everyone who was celebrating yesterday had a wonderful holiday and is taking it easy today.

What a better day to get started on all your Christmas projects than the day after Thanksgiving!

So let's learn a super quick, super easy design that will work great on holiday quilts:

Inspiration - I really enjoyed stitching Stomach Lining and decided we needed more center focused designs that were easy to quilt.

Design Family - Edge to Center. This design is worked by stitching from the edge of your quilting space into the center and then back. This design will likely work in all areas of your quilt, but will look best in the more open, uncomplicated places.

Difficulty Level - Beginner. This is a terrific design to practice with because you not only get experience with lines and changing direction, but you can also work on echoing your previous line of stitching.

Directional Texture - Center Focused. You really can't ignore the center focus this design creates. Definitely use it where ever you want lots of attention on your quilt!

Suggestions for Use - I'm working on several short tutorials for holiday ornaments. This will definitely make for an easy, fun project that anyone can tackle no matter what your skill level!
