Set of 6... with 12 configurations in all! >>> NEW VIDEO SCROLL DOWN <<<
The answer to the big square random patterns like Turning 20...just use the 3", 9" and 12".
No more figuring out what machine quilting piecing pattern you are going to use in those multiple sized blocks!
Tip: You may be wondering whether to choose the the stencil set of the template set. This may help you with your choice.
If you wish to eventually do the Terry Twist free-motion, the the stencils would be a good decision because you can develop cell and muscle memory quickly for fills and smaller areas, which are so prevelant on quilt tops today. On the other hand, for total control and accuracy the template set is the way to go - especially for larger borders and blocks.
This quilt was in the video and is a great example of the many ways the TT will work with random asymmetrical blocks and also take up extra fabric. Follow along as we go thru my thought process....
Here is where you get your rhythm... and soon you will be "doin the Terry Twist".
Used the stencils here, and randomly nested different sizes of the TT, sometimes following the piecing lines sometimes not. Since the Terry Twist is asymmetrical it really doesn't matter what size you use, they all complimented one another, so just fill an overall area. It could be a rectangle, square, L shape area, like putting together puzzle pieces....you can really do no wrong.
The NEW Walking Border Technique really stands out in the top right corner. Use the TT as a spine and "walk" on each side of the spine as you come to it and machine quilt feathers,Hooked On Feathers, leaves, curls, ribbons, tendrils....etc.
success stories: "I took one of your machine quilting classes at the Vermont Quilt Festival two years ago, and it did wonders for my self confidence. Thank you. I am looking forward to using the Terry Twist quilting pattern. I have the perfect quilt top for it."
"Thank you, Sally. I recently had a LA student who needed to freemotion-quilt a gorgeous winter/snowman top she'd made...there were 2 borders made of 2.5" squares...perfect for your Terry Twist, right? Well, she got so excited about them that when she completed a major portion non-stop she did a little jig, arms waving in the air and all! Thanks for these simple yet stunning methods for completing our quilts...she'd just figured she'd ditch them...sooooooooooo boring, eh?" Sharon
