Day 291 - Monster Teeth

I've been sharing a lot of complex looking designs lately, so let's go back to the basics with a simple design using rectangles and squares. When stitched off the edges of your quilting space, they kind of look like Monster Teeth!

This simple design is best suited for narrow areas of your quilt, like the sashing or borders. If you find yourself struggling with stitching the straight lines, try a wiggly version of this called Flowing Glass and see if it works easier for you.

Today's video is sponsored by the Queen Supreme Quilting Kit.Difficulty Level - Beginner. This is super simple! Just stitch rectangles of different sizes off one side of your quilting space, varying the length of the rectangles so they look like jagged teeth. For a similar design try Modern Art, which uses triangle to a beautiful effect.

Design Family - Edge to Center. All of the designs in this section are stitched from the edge of your quilting space into the center, making them great designs for the sashing or borders of your quilts.

Directional Texture - 2 Directions. This design has a very obvious horizontal or vertical texture, which works great when you're needing a simple design to fill your quilt quickly.

Suggestions for Use - This design is making me think of Halloween! Jagged Monster Teeth combined with Spider Web, Eyeballs, and Cobwebs in the Corners should make for one fun, spooky quilt!
