This week I will cover creation of an edge to edge pattern for the Let's Go Fly a Kite quilt. I thought I would cover this in two videos. Both show how I use Art and Stitch to create my design.
Video 1 will cover creating the Kite plus tail.
Video 2 will cover use of a template to create an interlocking design and placement of the kites and connecting everything up with a cloud filler design.
The beauty of this pattern is that once you understand the process, it would be a great pattern to freehand on your domestic on non-computerized longarm machine.
If sewing this freehand, stitch the string and tail first. Then add the top.
In the second video I created an interlocking template and placed the kites. I also added clouds to fill in the empty space and connect everything up.
Here is my final edge to edge design.
Here is a photo of it super-imposed on my Let's Go Fly a Kite quilt.
This one took a bit of time to draft and I realize that not all of you will want to draft your own rendition. Therefore, I decided to offer the pattern on my website in all the major quilting system formats. Since this is a new offering from me, I want to celebrate and will provide a 50% discount off the pattern for the next two weeks.
The digitized pattern will regularly retail for $15. So it is on sale for $7.50. Click here to purchase and download.
For those are still working on piecing the quilt, a reminder that
onstructions for piecing the Kite quilt will be available until August 15th. Please make sure to print off anything you need by that time.
