Project #1 - E2E past quilt borders.

Project #2 - E2E within boundries

Projects #3 - #7 - Combination of the individual project into a table runner format

Project #3 - It starts with cross-hatching the entire block then masking out the center square-in-a-square. A vase is then put in the center square. Lastly an arc / handle of unconnected flowers is placed.

Project #4 - Project 4 brings together a variety of techniques and functions. You will:

1)    Treat each piece of the vertical flying geese as a design element to have a separate pattern.

2)    Treat each of the horizontal flying geese blocks as a design element to receive a pattern.

3)    Make a pattern to make arcs on the seams of the bottom left four-square.

4)    Place an elaborate circular pattern in the top right square and attach an additional pattern to the circular pattern so as to fill in the corners.

Project #5 - Project 5 combines:

1)    Making a border-corner for one corner and copying it to the others;

2)    Placing a wreath pattern around the center star;

3)    Placing designs in the center star points;

4)    Placing a flower in the center square,

5)    Echoing to fill, and

6)    Mask off the unwanted lines.

Project #6 - This project focuses on the two vertical sashings, shown in white, between projects 2 & 4 and 4 & 5.

The sashing is made by creating more, grouped copies, splitting them in the middle, and then flip one end to create a focal point effect.

The sashing made for the first is then copied and placed in the second position.

Project #7 - This project creates the complete border around projects 3 – 5.

Borders are somewhat unique in that there are two different distances used from the pattern to the edge. On the interior of the border the distance is usually ¼” while on the exterior it is usually ½” to allow for the space for the binding.

This technique can then be used to create the border around the edge-to-edge project 2.
