Winter Bird Quilted Table Runner Color & Construction Tips

  1. 1. Winter Bird Color & Construction Tips By Maria Peagler Author, Color Mastery: 10 Principles for Creating Stunning Quilts
  2. 2. Black & Cream Color Palette <ul><li>Black & cream have high contrast, giving high definition to Square-in-Square block </li></ul><ul><li>Cream, or winter white, is a softer version of white. Not as bright. </li></ul><ul><li>Green birds add a warm color to the palette while maintaining sophistication. </li></ul><ul><li>I auditioned pink for the birds; too bright, overwhelming, and juvenile. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Square-in-Square Block Tips <ul><li>Fold square both ways to crease mid-points </li></ul><ul><li>Press triangle to crease mid-point </li></ul><ul><li>Match mid-points and pin well. Triangle ends will extend over square. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Don’t Cut Off Those Points! <ul><li>Trim dog ears. Keeps block flat and tidy. </li></ul><ul><li>Sew remaining triangles with block wrong side up so you don’t cut off the block points. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t trim your block, even if it’s off. You need every bit of fabric at your square points. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Making Curved Bias Stems <ul><li>Fold bias strips in half, wrong sides together, overlapping ends </li></ul><ul><li>Baste using long straight-stitch on your sewing machine </li></ul><ul><li>Pin bias stems in place, curving as you go. Steam curve, then press. Machine applique using your straight stitch. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Learn More About Color <ul><li>To learn more about color, refer to my book: C olor Mastery </li></ul><ul><li>Quilts & Creativity blog will feature a new color each month with an accompanying pattern </li></ul><ul><ul><li>http://www.colormastery.com </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>http://quiltsandcreativity.com </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>http://www.twitter.com/colormaster </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>http://www. facebook .com/mariapeagler </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>http://www. youtube . com/colorfulquilter </li></ul></ul>
