Quilting Design Sheets – Ebb & Flow Quilting Designs

Posted on

I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I last posted one of my Design Sheets – the time went really fast! I’ve been super busy with non-quilting related activities. First was an organized bicycle ride, the Mickelson Trail Trek, which hubby and I have done for the last four years. Beautiful scenery, well organized ride by S.D. Game Fish & Parks, and fun friends to share it with – this is one of my favorite annual rides.

I then attended a Garth Brooks concert for the first time – what a great show!

The following weekend, several friends and I traveled to Lanesboro MN. This town is right in the middle of the Root River Trail, a beautiful paved trail that is a popular destination for cyclists. For three days we biked, ate, shopped, attended a play, played card games, and LAUGHED!

The following weekend was a Girls Camp-out – actually more like a Glamp-out – as we stayed in my friend’s 36′ motorhome. More biking, eating, game playing and laughter. We did invite the guys for supper on Sat. night.

Now that the garden is put to bed for the winter and the weather is getting colder, it’s time to get back to quilting.

New Quilting Design Sheet – Ebb & Flow

The next in my series of Design Sheets is for Ebb & Flow quilting designs. This set started as a fabulous pantograph. Use just one row as a border or sashing, or offset every other row for an undulating design that gives a lot of movement. Also included are two other border designs, two frames, two wreaths, a block and a star.

Don’t forget that Design Sheets are a GREAT resource for you when trying to find just the right design for a quilt – print out the Design Sheets, store them in a binder, and flip through them as needed. Your clients will appreciate being able to see the various designs available as well.

If you don’t quilt your own quilts, you can STILL take advantage of these Design Sheets. Just send a link to your longarmer and she/he can order the designs to use on your quilt.

Don’t you just love how the Ebb & Flow pantograph looks on this baby quilt?

By the way, the piecing pattern is one I designed called Baby Bricks. There’s also a larger version called Bricklayer that looks great in masculine colors for a guy’s quilt.

And the pattern is an instant download from Craftsy, so you can start sewing it right away!
