Rebellious Fabric Marking Methods...

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jennifer Schifano Thomas Feb 2, 2012. 2 Replies

Okay!  I feel like such a rebel!  I just used a Sharpie Marker to trace some templates onto my fabric.  I'm so fed up with poor marking tools.  Nothing else was really working & I'm going to cut…Continue

Supernova ~ Cutting Out a New Quilt Design

 Supernova Quilt
This quilt and pattern was originally published in Quilts from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, as Cosmic Blast.  I love the color explosion in this quilt so much, I've decided to redo the quilt and release it as a new Curlicue Creations pattern, Supernova, hopefully sometime this year.

 I cut most of the fabrics this week.  All fabrics are coming out of my stash ~ nothing new.  This gorgeous swirly dot print from Timeless Treasures is going to be used for all of the black in the quilt.  
 I love batik fabrics, and am putting a lot of them into this project.  I'm using this Red Orange for some of the triangle pieces.

And this darker Red Orange batik will help to add depth to the design.

I'll post more updates as this quilt develops.

The Rainbow Connection Update

Slow but steady progress:  This update shows the red, orange, and yellow rows being added to the top and bottom arms of the star.  I've sewn a row of black hexies to the lower left star arm that will continue around all edges.  I've not yet decided if I should do all of the fill in with black, or jazz that up with some "V" shaped stripes.  What do you think?  Please leave a comment below.

Thanks Jennifer. I just printed out blocks 1-9. Didn't realize you have an e-book going here, but that's ok. I can say I know the authoress. Looking forward to more star blocks. And, I'm also looking forward to making more star quilting using your designs.

At 9:34pm on March 22, 2014, Linda Koller said…

Jennifer,

I love your stars. I only have one of them, but I don't know which number it is. How do I get all the previous star patterns? Can't wait for the new one. Once I get them all then perhaps I can make a quilt, but it looks like I'm already 9 blocks behind.
