Good Morning, Quilters!
How are YOUR Spring Samplers coming along?
Do you have any questions?
Last week I received a few questions on stabilization…I will discuss my method more on Friday–and we will open it up to “Open Line Friday”–Would love to hear YOUR tips and techniques…
THE SPRING SAMPLER–DOUBLE LOOP VINE
Today we will add the Double Loop Vine motif to the two plain borders on either side of the center. (The rows that are not pieced half square triangles.)
The Double Loop Vine is a modern motif and can be used in place of traditional feathers in any quilt border. It is easier than Feathers too!
MARK THE QUILT
Begin by drawing a shallow wavy line along the border.
(I prefer chalk for marking.)
Add a loop. Stop with the needle down.
Reverse direction and add a small inner loop.
Stitch along the drawn line again.
Continue adding double loops and stitching along the drawn line:
At the end of the row, stitch back from right to left…adding double loops.
Complete the first row. Knot off and begin the second border of The Double Loop vine.
Happy, Happy Stitching Stitching,
