On Saturday, May 19, the eyes of the world were fixed on the royal wedding of Britain’s Prince Harry and his lovely American bride, Meghan Markle. But my eyes? They were fixed on that veil!
It was 16.5 feet of flowing silk tulle with hand-embroidered flowers all along the edge: California poppy to represent Meghan’s home, wintersweet to represent the home of her prince, and flowers for each of the 53 countries in the Commonwealth. As you can imagine, it took hundreds of hours to stitch that garden of silk and organza blooms. And since they were working with such delicate, white silk tulle, the veil’s creators paused every 30 minutes to wash their hands. It was truly a masterpiece, but I’m exhausted just thinking about it!
This week’s new quilt, Royal Wedding, is based on the old English Wedding Ring quilt, but it’s so quick and easy, you’ll be well on your way before teatime! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
The dreaded Y seam. The mere mention of this heinous seam can strike fear in even the most seasoned quilter. It’s so bad that some of us shy away from beautiful quilt patterns just to avoid Y seams altogether. If you love the look of tumbling block quilts but have been too chicken to make your own, you’re going to love Jenny’s easy new version, the Rhombus Cube Quilt! You’ll get that same 3D look without a single Y seam!
If you’re one of those people who actually enjoys Y seams, you’ll still love the new MSQC Rhombus template! It is so handy because it’s not only a rhombus, but turn it on its side and it’s an equilateral triangle that fits a 5″ square perfectly!
Another version of this quilt is featured in our latest ModBlock Vol. 2, created by the amazing Christina Ricks! So, if you’ve been waiting to decide whether you NEED it, today’s tutorial might convince you. It gives more detailed written instructions on how to use the template as well!
Say goodbye to Y seams and hello to the Rhombus Cube Quilt!
