One of my favorite special exhibits at the 38th Annual MN Quilt show was entitled Stripes. This was the staff challenge for Glad Creation's Quilt Shop. Here are a few of the quilts from that exhibit. I also took some close-ups so you could get a better feel for the "stripe".
This exhibit inspired me to make my own stripe quilt. Mine, however, was done in Electric Quilt.
For this week's Electric Quilt video tutorial, I will share some tips for working with stripes in Electric Quilt. If you haven't used Rotate Fabric and Fussy Cut recently -- this video is for you.
Most of the stripes used in this quilt were from Michael Miller's Stripe collection. These images were less than perfect for coloring my quilt -- but I will share a few tips on dealing with that as well. :)
I also picked up the latest Stash Collection from Electric Quilt and had to play with that as well. This is a collection of the latest released fabric lines from the major fabric manufacturers. Here is my It's a Mystery pattern done up in the Americana II fabric collection by Riley Blake.
Featured Pattern - It's a Mystery
This quilt was originally designed for a mystery weekend – hence the name. This seemingly complex quilt is easier than it looks. Instructions provide for strip pieced and over-sized units that are cut down with the use of the recommended rulers from Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design.
Three sizes are available: Lap 57 x 69 (shown), Twin 69 x 93 or Full 93 x 93
