Explore modern designs rooted in traditional Welsh quilting as you create a one-of-a-kind wholecloth pillow. Award-winning quilter Tia Curtis shows you how, step by step. Learn to mark your quilt using household items (such as a dinner plate!), then fill in the framework with your choice of Welsh motifs. Although you might find it helpful to use a quilting ruler and foot for some motifs, Tia also offers methods for free-motion and walking-foot quilting.
Begin with a brief history of Welsh quilting. Then dive into your pillow project as you prepare your fabric and press key lines, dividing up your quilting area. After that, see how to accurately mark a center circle and a border to finish setting up.
Further divide your quilting area into windows in your choice of arc or melon shapes; Tia shows you how using simple circle templates you can make yourself using the class materials. Once you've basted the front layers, quilt key lines with your walking foot to stabilize the quilt.
Learn to quilt the show-stopping element of any Welsh quilt: the center medallion! Tia shares two gorgeous design options: a traditional Welsh leaf and geometric wedge. Use a quilting ruler to create beautifully consistent leaves, or complete the wedges with your walking foot.
