It just arrived in my mailbox! The new issue of the American Quilter’s Society Magazine featuring my Fabulous Freeform Fillers article that includes 4 patterns. Patterns can be downloaded from their website here.
Freeform fillers are curvy shapes that can add drama to your quilt projects. Originally I used curvy flying geese, but now I use a variety of shapes – picket fence, pointy dudes, spirals. These filler strips can be an accent to your quilt design or they can be used to create an entire quilt.
If you enjoy the designs and techniques in the magazine article, you will want to get all the fillers and information featured in my book, Flying Colors – Design Quilts with Freeform Shapes and Flying Geese (C&T Publishing) which is available here on my website or from American Quilter.
I will be teaching the class on Fabulous Freeform Fillers at the International Quilt Festival in Houston in early November this year.
