Chevron with a Twist Celebration!

Greetings everyone!! I've been hiding out behind the scenes lately and I'm so excited to show you why. 

I'm thrilled to celebrate another
Moda Bake Shop recipe with you...
Do you remember the Heart's Content Decorative Pillow I created for the Bake Shop in November?
Well, I slightly overestimated the fabric for that recipe and was left with a beautiful layer cake of Heart's Content fabric by Laundry Basket Quilts for Moda (poor me ;)

Oh what to do with a layer cake of fabric...  How about designing a quilt using Half Square Triangles... ?
And it's probably important to include a little applique and a Redbird...
And how can you pass up a design that affords you bunches of Free Motion Quilting options?
Chevrons and Feathers?
Yes, thank you!
Curved crosshatches, scallops, and a neat new feather block using my newly acquired QP Curve Templates ??  
Eeeek - YES! 
I've always admired curved crosshatching and was excited to try it myself -- I'm addicted... 
I quilted "Chevron with a Twist" on my domestic machine with one layer of Quilter's Dream 100% Wool #dreamwool and using my favorite Aurifil thread!  

I just love Aurifil Mako Cotton 50Wt thread for machine quilting... it rarely breaks, has minimal lint, and is fine, yet strong.  Actually, on this recipe, I used it for the applique, the piecing AND the quilting!!  
#Aurilove
New to me!!  I can't begin to describe how much fun I had working with the curved templates (acrylic rulers) on my domestic.  

They were designed by Linda Hrcka of The Quilted Pineapple (Linda uses them on her long arm machine and turns quilt tops into masterpieces!!) 

They're called "The QP Curve Templates" and WOW - did they open the door for some neat FMQ designs on "Chevron with a Twist"!  Can you tell I really, really loved working with them?
I have so much to share about the quilting I really can't fit it all in one post.  Let me tell you though, there are a series of posts coming up that include information and Giveaways you won't want to miss!!    I'll share more about the awesome QP Curve Templates then too!!

Right now though, we're going to celebrate this new Moda Bake Shop Recipe and the luscious Aurifil thread I used throughout the process.  The wonderful and generous team at Aurifil provided not one, but TWO sets of Aurifil thread to share with YOU!!   

The first set of thread includes 12 large spools of 40 Wt Mako Cotton thread put together especially for the Operation Homefront - Quilted in Honor initiative.  What a beautiful collection of threads and for a wonderful cause.  Learn more here. 
The 2nd set of thread includes 10 small spools of 50Wt thread the "I Can Fly" Citrus Collection by Mark Lipinski.  Oh you'll LOVE this amazing collection of colors.  Mark is a hoot! and a promoter of the #slowstitching movement.  You'll see from preparing "Chevron with a Twist" that getting in the slowstitching zone will payoff and make the journey more enjoyable!!  You can get to know a little more about Mark by clicking here.

  5. Your beautiful quilt grabbed me from the moment I opened my email and I saw the most beautiful quilt, adorned with the most spectacular quilting. Now, you've created a buzz in my mind about these nifty rulers and how they can be used on the home machine. I can't wait to see your future posts and because of that, I am signing up for your blog. (FB too, but in another comment). You did an amazing job and I can't wait to try the ruched flowers. Fun Fun Fun! Thank you Karen

  6. This is absolutely gorgeous! I love it all. You really quilted it on your domestic? I am so impressed. I get easily discouraged to try such difficult looking designs on mine, though I do have a large throat space and a nice area to quilt. I love the quilting. The applique and the piecing work so nice to together. I want to make this. K-

  32. I love your chevron quilt. I usually don't like the chevron prints , I think because they are all one color or print. But yours is stunning. The varied prints, the quilting and of course my favorite red bird. On my way to moda bake shop next to see how to make it.

  67. Beautiful - I love how sweet the quilt looks in the soft palette. The applique on a pale background really sets off the rest of the pattern. Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Karen - I found it - thanks for "straightening me out"! I feel a little "kinship" since my daughter and I go to Owego sometimes when I'm in NY (she lives near Candor and I should mention we visit during summer!) and I love that village (not the cold so much). Anyway, I hope I might be lucky enough to win a try at the Aurifil thread but regardless, I ADORE that quilt. You are a true artist!

  118. Karen ~ The Chevron with a Twist quilt is stunning. I really love the applique added to the quilt and how it's off center. That really makes it look great instead of it being totally centered as so many others are. I like the way you have done that. And as always, your instructions are just so detailed. The ruched flowers are a gorgeous addition.

  158. Well. your Chevron With A Twist is just absolutely beautiful.
    Do you remember what all the kids were saying years back “I want to be like Mike”
    Well, My saying would be “I want to quilt like Karen”.
    It’s hard to believe you are able to do such beautiful work on a regular sewing machine. The Aurifil thread must be your secret.

  160. Karen, I love what you did on this quilt! I too love Aurifil thread; I use it for just about everything quilty.
    I'm going to take a look at those QP templates-I've been thinking about doing some curved crosshatch on one of my own quilts.

  163. The applique work is great. Doing applique again is on my mental list of things to do. A rather never ending list, I must say!
