Fragile Like a Bomb

By Diane Russell

Introducing the Westalee Design Grand Leaf Templates

Using the Grand Leaf Template set and the TempLee Quilt method of quilting, Diane will create this stunning mini wall hanging, tote bag, or table runner. The possibilities are endless! We will explore designs using the Design Pad & Stitching Disks, then take our design to the sewing machine and create a beautiful block with the TempLee Quilt method.

We will also discuss the multiple looks that can be achieved with one Template and just one block

This ornate template can be used in a variety of ways.

The Grand Leaf Templates were designed to fit a hexagon, it is worked using the 6 Point Crosshair Ruler. The Grand Leaf Template can be used with 6, 8, 10, 12, 16 or more Crosshair Reference Lines. Remember that the more Reference lines used the more intricate the design. The Grand Leaf design works beautifully when TempLee Quilted. Once the Grand Leaf Design is stitched use the outer edge of the template to quilt the internal feathering.
