Day 339 - Crazy Weave

Ah! Back home again after a super fun vacation. While we all had a great time, we really prefer to sleep in our own beds so it's very nice to be home again and getting life back to normal.

And the most normal thing to do is share some more designs for the project! Here's what happens when you stitch Flowing Lines on top of itself to create Crazy Weave:

The nice thing about Crazy Weave is that it hides a lot of your mistakes. Even if you stitch off during the traveling sections, I doubt anyone will see it when you add the second layer of the design. See what I mean in this video:

Do you know anyone that would like this design?
Make sure to share it with your quilting friends
today so everyone can enjoy this fun, funky texture!

Difficulty Level - Beginner. As I said before, this design is as easy as stitching curvy lines. The sections of travel stitching will likely be the hardest part, but again, if you mess up don't fret about it!

Design Family - Edge to Edge. This design is stitched from one edge of your quilting space to the other, making it a great design for sashing, borders, or to stitch over your entire quilt!

Directional Texture - 2 Directions. This design is pretty similar to Matrix in that they both have an obvious horizontal or vertical texture, but they're also a lot like a grid, which has a flat, directionless texture.

Suggestions for Use - I think this would be a really fun design to experiment with on a large scale. The large, wiggly lines could even be quilted with a walking foot, which makes this a great design for those quilters who haven't quite jumped into free motion quilting yet!

  1. Wow...thanks for the video! Due to economic necessity, I'm learning how to do my own quilting versus sending them out. Your video shows something even I could attempt...just need to get that confidence going!

    Thanks bunches!
