Tribal Crossing for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol 9

May 2, 2014 
Q & A with Anita
What inspired Tribal Crossing?

The "blade" shape seen in the traditional  Key West Beauty block that I patterned in one of my paper piecing books. It became a 30 inch quilt which grew to a 38 foot wide image in Times Square Details
I reprised the shape in my signature No-Waste Windmill block  Details
And now it's pretty in pink
What techniques were used?
• It's paper pieced with appliquéd circles. I cinched the circles over 1" mylar circles
How did you make the circles?
• I could have fused them per Quiltmaker's recommendation but wanting handwork during travel, I needle-turned them and then attached them with a machine zig zag stitch

Are the circles necessary?
• They are the icing on the cake don’t you think?

Do you precut patches for paper piecing the background?
I do
Templates may be made by cutting a couple of Tribal Crossing patterns apart into subunits. Before cutting out the subunits, add a 1/4 inch seam allowance to each subunit. I use paper templates that I generate with Electric Quilt (EQ) software
• There are two sets of shapes that are the reverse of each other. They’re asymmetrical. That's four patches plus the center triangle

 I also used EQ to mock up other colors:
 How many templates are needed to cut the four patches? 
•  Only two. The trick is to always cut two same shape patches simultaneously from a folded piece of fabric. It won't matter if you fold the fabric right side or wrong sides together (Yes, you could use one patch and layer the fabric in fourths)
It won't matter if the template is right side or wrong side up. You'll wind up with two patches that are always the reverse of each other. As long as you can cut through two layers of fabric, you've got it made.

What paper do you print the foundation pattern on?
• I use my very own thin translucent vellum, Simple Foundations, for my original no-pin paper piecing method

How do you get away with no pins? 
  1. Get creative and position two copies of the foundation onto a sheet of paper exactly across from each other, 1/2" apart. The words  “Tribal Crossing Section” in the seam allowances will be opposite each other
  2. Print this composite  onto a sheet of vellum
  3. Carefully fold and crease the vellum in half so that each section is aligned exactly on top of each other. You need vellum to see the alignment Piece the sections Refold the pieced foundation along the original crease
  4. Without a pin, sew the same seam that you would have if you had pieced two separate sections Think of Humpty-Dumpty. If you don’t cut a foundation pattern apart, you don’t have to put it back together again
  5. I paper pieced Tribal Crossing blocks aboard the ms. Westerdam last Saturday night
     while between Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas. I taught on Road To California's
    Panama Canal Quilt cruise
    Do you sell the block pattern for Tribal Crossing? 
    • I don’t but Quiltmaker does Purchase the issue
    Visual Learner? 

    Where might I take a Workshop from you?
    • I’ll be teaching next month  on Quiltmaker’s sold-out Block Party at Sea, a cruise through Alaska with Carolyn Beam, Debbie Caffrey, Diane Harris, Margie Ullery and Editor-in-Chief June Dudley
    • I’m always available in my 3 1/2 hour class on Craftsy.com.  It includes “Anita’s Arrowhead” expanded from the pages of Quiltmaker Magazine. It includes a bonus PDF version of my C&T Publishing book Rotary Cutting Revolution with its more than 300 images. You can win it.
    • There’s the Houston Quilt Festival in October and I’ll teach next winter on the Quantum in the Caribbean.
    Giveaways (3)
    Nan_c won the issue of 100 Blocks because her reply happened to post on Friday, May 2, 2014 at 2:11:00 PM EDT and 2-11 happened to be my husband's birthday. The odds of that are 3 out of 4,319, or about 0.07%

    The first and last commentors, Anita (!) and CapitolaQuilter each won the Craftsy class.
     
    What are you up to quilting-wise? 
    Make it Simpler,
    Anita

I am working on two projects at this time. The first is a king size star quilt for a fellow who has done some work for me but wouldn't let me pay him. He said he would like to give his wife a quilt as a special gift. So as I make the quilt he is doing those things around the yard and house that I can not do. The second is a needle turn appliqué quilt with a variety of pink flowers and green leaves. It will be bright and whimsical. Plus tops that need quilting and projects started and set aside. Thank you for this opportunity and all of the information you have on your site.

Next is a quilt for my husband and one of my granddaughters for her birthday which is coming up a few months from now.

About read to start quilting it.

I'm still in the middle of my Craftsy Sampler from 2012 with Amy Gibson. My machine got put away and it's a real chore to uncover it and find a clear space (and time).

I'm currently in the process of machine-quilting some of my many UFO's - hoping to stay with it and not get distracted by starting a new quilt!

Pat V. said...

When I first saw your block, I thought, whoa, way too complicated for me. But your explanation makes it simple! Right now I am simultaneously working on two giant scrap quilts, an Ocean Wave made of leftover triangles, and one of little three inch blocks made from little scraps! My sewing space looks chaotic, but I'm lovin' it!
