I just finished my summer teaching at My Sewing Room – I have a follow up post on that, but that is for another day.
As a treat to myself I decided to take the Hyperquilting class that was being offered. It looked like a really neat quilting technique and I am always looking for great patterns for my quilts or journal covers.
The technique calls for you to free motion a design like the “mitten flowers” below (because each petal looks like a mitten) and connect them with something like a loop or meander. Then you go over the design adding to it with a different thread color. And apparently you can continue to go over the design with different threads until you are satisfied.
I really liked the technique and see many possibilities to using it – a whole cloth quilt, a journal cover, heck just an all over quilting pattern on a pieced quilt – you would just have to be careful that it didn’t take away from the piecing work.
The book gave a really good start to this technique had great step by step instructions and illustrations.
I need a lot more practice on it though and look forward to perfecting the mitten flowers and other designs.
