#429 - Free Motion Quilt Jagged Flames

Any chance you remember what you were doing in August 2009? I do - I was just starting this blog and posting the first handful of designs! One of them was Gentle Flames, a beautiful flowing design perfect for your sashing.

Today we're turning those gentle flames into Jagged Flames by changing out the soft curves for zigzags:


At the end of this video I went on a little rant about sashing. It really irritates me to see beautifully quilted blocks and borders, but empty sashing! This little narrow space deserves a design, and Jagged Flames would be a great choice for knocking out this area quickly and beautifully.

So don't leave your sashing spaces empty! Fill them up with this design or any other beautiful Edge to Edge Design that you like!

Let's go quilt,
