I have heard from a few people who went through the Summer Games challenge that rather than making the full Summer Games quilt, they would prefer to highlight one of the blocks -- featuring a sport that a family member or friend enjoys.
In this tutorial, I will share with you how I started with the Badminton block (which will be the center of my mini-quilt). Then I will use that block to copy and resize the lines for the shuttlecock (birdie). This provided the guidelines for drafting a complementary block for the corners.
I also share my trick for making the racket string lines visible on the quilt (without the other patch lines).
Here is the badminton mini-quilt from the video.
Whether you were in the Summer Games challenge (or not) consider drafting a mini-quilt with a complementary border. I would love to see pictures of your design. Feel free to post pictures on the Learning EQ Facebook Group.
