EASY GRID PLAY
Today’s tutorial is a combination of several tutorials. By combining the X Marks the Spot grid motif with another motif, you can create a wide variety of easy quilting for any block or quilt size.
In X Marks the Spot Tutorial, we drew a one inch grid…
Then we filled in ever one inch block with an X – by stitching triangles into the center of each square.
In this motif, the X is larger–2″ by 2″.
This allows extra room to add another motif.
First stitch all of the Xs on the grid…(not shown here).
Once that is complete, go back and add another motif t0 every other row.
Motifs like The Snowflake
or The Daisy Chain…work well.
A Spiral would also work well….
This would fill any quilt very quickly and it’s WAY EASIER than it looks! (We all love that!)
Give this motif a try on your next quilt–and as always,
