|Linda LaBrot's beautiful Borders Quilt. Pattern is from Winnie Fleming's Borders Class|
I sewed these lines creating the arches. You could easily make this step straight lines as well. I like using double lines because it defines the arches.
Now it was time to mark the curved crosshatched lines. Using that fabulous disappearing marker again and the same arch template, I marked the lines following the curve across the arch. Then turned the arch template over and marked the other way. Since the arched template I was using does not have any marked lines, I used a piece of painters tape on the template to mark the width of the crosshatches.
Time to sew...Using the same arch template, I quilted the lines. I retraced the original arches and the stitch in the ditch at the bottom so I would not have so many starts and stops within such a small space.
And so I put the curve into crosshatching. It really is Easy Peasy!
And for your enjoyment, the rest of Linda's stunning Border Quilt. I had a hard time letting this one go back to her. I wanted to keep it.
