Test run #1: The Helix
This pattern is made with the helix template.
I started with pulling fabrics, printing directions, and making a template. I didn't change the scale of the template since I figured it would work for this mini project.
I made my own grid.
I followed the directions for marking and cutting the panels.
Then, I marked the left side with my soft graphite pencil so that I had my reference point, which is handy to have.
Since my Davis NVF doesn't have the perfect 1/4 inch walking foot, the strips no longer matched the grid. That didn't bother me.
Finished with first test run. My husband says it looks like two breast while my son says it looks like an hourglass.
This pattern is made with the hourglass template.
I decided to use three different colors per strip instead of the two that are in the directions. So, I made a mistake on which piece I wanted cut. Trial and error on my part.
I wanted the orange panel to be sandwiched between the purples. I had to rip out the orange and add a new panel, and then re-cut on the purple.
I love treadling my Davis NVF!
Finished the Hourglass Sine Wave.
The two projects. An Interleave Mini Quilt would make a wonderful gift for a math or science teacher...or even that math geek.
