It’s been a busy week here at The Inbox Jaunt. I hope you all enjoyed yesterday’s guest post from the very creative, Hilary Florence. (Hilary blogs HERE) My machine was smoking late into the evening trying all the variations…Great job,Hilary…Come again any time!
YOU CAN GUEST POST, TOO!
I would like to encourage other bloggers and would-be bloggers to give “guest posting” a try. We’d love to feature YOU here at The Inbox Jaunt!
Though the weather does not reflect the calendar…it is almost Easter!…You might want to try The Easter Egg tutorial HERE and the Bunny tutorial HERE... They are quick projects that you may have time to whip up before Sunday!
THE MAYPOP LEAF
On Tuesday, we worked on a versatile motif-The Maypop Leaf. As with all the tutorials, I think it is easiest to learn a pattern if you have a few “rails” or drawn lines to establish scale. Once you learn the motif, try modifying it to fit YOUR quilt.
FILLING A SQUARE
One way to fill a square with The Maypop Leaf is to draw diagonal lines across the square and stitch leaves radiating out from the center on those lines.
Another way to fill a square: Draw one diagonal line across the square and place two separate Maypop Leafs inside the triangles.
