Quilted Clamshell Videos
The Quilted Clamshell Videos!
Each of the videos stitches a single clamshell shape. The Quilted Clamshell books gives you resources to create these designs and many more by simply manipulating three variables.
In the videos, I’m using my?HandiQuilter Avante 18″?longarm quilting machine. You can certainly stitch these designs on a domestic home sewing machine. I’m also using pre-printed clamshell fabric panels from Spoonflower in the demonstrations.
The first quilted clamshell (below) starts at the bottom point of the clamshell and features two designs: loops and points.
I’m still working on lighting and thread choices to make better videos, but in the meantime….
The second video shows the easiest and most basic quilting design, in my opinion – Loops. Yep. Loops start at the bottom of the clamshell and work their way up the shape. See how it is done here:
?I altered the soft loop design to add pointed edges on the right and left sides. I call this shape the Fire Guy.?See how he looks in this next clamshell.
These videos are all part of a video playlist on Youtube, which means I’ve added a collection of The Quilted Clamshell videos into one list which will play one-after-another as you watch. I hope you like them!
