Quilting around the corner – type 5 from I Patch and Quilt

Happy Saturday!

The sun is out, the flowers are in bloom, enough fabric to quilt up, good music on the radio… Let’s focus on the good today!

Here is the fifth way you could quilt around the corner with a ribbon candy. I have dubbed it ‘Curl’ as that is last shape you stitch before reaching the corner.

Do you see how, in the drawing below, the blue Ribbon Candy (coming in from the left), turns into a purple curl? You stitch that curl when you are the closest as possible to the corner/diagonal (white dotted line). Finish ...

Quilting around the corner – type 4 from I Patch and Quilt

Welcome everybody!

Today I will show you a fourth option for going around corners using the Ribbon Candy pattern.

Quilting around the corner – type 1 from I Patch and Quilt

Several people who commented on my posts on my blog or on Facebook/Instagram requested information on how they could quilt around a corner using the Ribbon Candy pattern, just like you would do in borders around a quilt.

So I started drawing to see what I could come up with.  Almost directly, I came to the conclusion I had to order the corner options into different types. These types are not definitive as some options/types are similar, but I hope they will help you decide which ones you would like to try.

Today I will share a few ...
