Here we go with pt.2 of the Legit Kits custom quilting. This time we are using rulers exclusively. I explain how to use Baptist Fans as a background with the Fab5 Fan Set®. Then we do Straight Line Quilting throughout Big G’s body.
Here’s a quick video demonstrating the original FAB5 FAN SET® for Spring. Baptist Fans continue to be a classic go-to quilting design for traditional and modern quilts alike. Quilt precise Baptist Fans using rulers and your longarm or home sewing machine.

Check out the YouTube video of my approach to quilting my client, Tina’s quilt. It’s the Jen Kingwell template-of-the-month project, PSYCHEDELIA. This was Tina’s Covid-Lockdown project. She did a fantastic job piecing this quilt with lots of fun fabrics from her stash. Most of it is hand or paper pieced. I add my touches of […]
