Look What Comes With the shortE

 

On Friday, I showed the ShortE to students in my recent Stitching Sister event. Many were intrigued by the designs that come with The Shorte so I thought I’d give you a closer look.  We’ve included two versatile sets of quilting designs for allover quilting on whole cloth quilts or pieced quilts. The stipple collection fills the embroidery hoop with linking repeats of meandering wavy lines. You’ll find nine designs in this collection: top left, top center, top right, center right, center, center left, bottom left, bottom center and bottom right.

Shorte2

The Chandelier collection stitches very quickly and consists of a center medallion (for the center of the quilt), a half vertical (for the left and right edges), a half horizontal (for the top and bottom edges) and two border designs. There are several ways to arrange the designs to produce a variety of quilts.

Shorte1

The best way to get started is to print templates of all of the designs so you can audition them on the actual quilt. I love the new Print & Stick Target Template paper – perfect for auditioning quilt designs on a quilt – and they stay put! Before printing, change the thread color on each design to black to make it easy to see. If you’re using Perfect Embroidery Pro or My Quilt Embellisher, select the design and click the 3D icon to change the image to a more vivid rendition of the design.

Shorte3

Place the templates on the quilt and review the layout. If you’re pleased with it, it’s time to get stitching! This week, I’m finally getting a chance to quilt my Sunkissed quilt from Nancy Zieman’s Quick Column Quilt blog tour way back in September. I’m tempted to use the chandelier designs, I’ll keep you posted of my progress.

Sunkissed

Here’s your assignment this week:Leave ac comment and tell us if you think the chandelier or stipple designs will look best on the Sun Kissed quilt. One comment will be chosen at random to receive a $25 gift card to use on the DIME website. Good Luck!

I do wallhangers, baby quilts, quilts of all sizes up to king. My God’s Promise Quilt took 1st. place at the Calgary Stampede and was my first time ever putting a quilt in to be judged. I was so very humble as any quilt I make is for the enjoyment and to see the finished result is so rewarding.”

    Even though the chandelier is a pretty pattern, I don’t think it is the best choice for this quilt. If you have to choose an all over design, the stipple is a better choice since it won’t compete with the strong verticle shapes.

    I would go with a stipple since the blocks are irregular. Otherwise, I would go with the Chandelier. I love it!

    Chandelier would be my preference. To bad that the designs aren’t set up for edge to edge quilting (start of design aligns with the end of previous design. No jump stitches and looks traditionally done.

    The Chandelier looks like it is spread out enough to give it an airy look and the Stipple looks like it is too crowded.

    I prefer the chandelier design, but on this quilt I would use the stipple designs. The quilt itself has enough vertical movement. I think an all-over stipple would make a better balance to the final product.

    I prefer the chandelier designs would look best on the quilt, as the straight edges need something that feels “round” to soften the overall angular look, whether you decide to stay within each block or travel thru from edge to edge. If you stay within the rectangles, you might use a more showy or variegated thread to make the stitching stand out. Of course with quilting, nothing is set in stone, but this is a general rule my quilt group likes to follow when we’re deciding on the quilting. The stippling would need to be enlarged unless you wanted to compress some areas, which would be another idea — combine the designs and an alternated “embossed” effect.
