Good Morning, Quilters!
Today we are stitching an EASY new motif-the Roof Shingles Motif.
This motif is very easy to stitch and is the building block (pun intended) for other motifs we will learn later.
It is a great motif to fill a background quickly. You can change the look of the motif by changing the spacing between the rows and between the “shingles”
Stitching the Roof Shingles Motif
Stitch along the baseline for several stitches, then stitch a narrow triangle, ending on the baseline.
Stitch along the baseline.
And add another narrow triangle.
That’s it! Could it be any easier?
To make the Roof Shingles Motif fit your quilt, adjust the spacing between the rows and between individual shingles.
Or mix sizes for more variety!
Doodle YOUR Roof
Start by doodling the basic design, then create YOUR own roof pattern. Try changing the size or shape of the triangles, adjust the line spacing or add small rows between large rows. Check out Shutterstock for inspiration.
Join our Facebook group: Quilting with LKQ to share YOUR designs!
And I’ll share a few variations next week.
Quilting doesn’t have to be complicated to look great!
As they say, “keep it simple and you have it made!”.
