Welcome to Wednesday - May 29, 2024

Featured Quilt - When Going Around In Circles is a Good Thing

Becky Weiland's quilt, A Mandala Quartet, which was featured at AQS QuiltWeek Paducah 2024 in the Small Wall Quilts: Stationary Machine Quilted category, takes inspiration for its design from two different books, Mystical Mandala Coloring Book by Alberta Hutchinson and Color My Calm: 100 Coloring Templates for Meditation and Relaxation by Angela Porter and Lacy Mucklow. The quilt is an interpretation of a Mandala quilt. A Mandala is a spiritual symbol in Hindu and Buddhist representing the universe. The literal translation of a Mandala means circle. So the "Quartet" of the title comes from the four different and dazzling circular designs that Becky created using, among other techniques, fusible appliqué, hand appliqué, and reverse appliqué.

Half Square Triangle Border Options with Alex

Nothing's Done Halfway When It Comes to Half-Square Triangles

We kick off our latest show with Alex showing us how Half-Square Triangles (HST) can be that added bit of interest when used as a border on a quilt. First, learn how to make the perfect HST, then see how color layout options can make a difference. And what about those pesky outside corners? Alex shares a clever tip for keeping the points angled out rather than in.

Learn from Alex, and Christa Watson, by watching her in Learn How to Plan and Do Domestic Machine Quilting with Christa Watson | Half-Square Triangle Borders with Alex Anderson.
