Announcing my newest creation, Ripple Effect!
Some quilts inspire others, and some create leftovers for another, creating a chain reaction or ripple. Remember those leftover curved pieces from the Glorified 9-Patch, Oh, Baby Baby?
Couldn't let them go to waste! So I designed Ripple Effect with a bit of a modern flair, not only in it's design, but also it's quilting.
I'd been itching for a few months to do modern style quilting after taking Angela Walter's 'Machine Quilting Negative Space' class on Craftsy.com.
I used to be terrified of negative space--I would avoid Snowball blocks at all costs! I just had no idea what to do with all that empty area. But after taking that class, and a couple others from Craftsy, I've become more courageous. And I designed this quilt specifically to quilt some negative space!
I love designing quilts, and have written up the pattern for Ripple Effect. It is available through the Craftsy pattern page. Click here to check it out! Instructions do not require you to make the Glorified 9-Patch but if you do, you can skip a lot of steps in the instructions!
And since I'm still testing out pattern writing, I'd appreciate your feedback about the pattern.
