Big Stitching: Dot2Dot Tablet Sleeve

 

The Strips ‘n Stitches and Log Cabin Pincushion I talked about in yesterday’s post, uses the seams of the pieced top as a guide for big stitching hand quilting.

In this next project, a stylish way to keep your favorite tablet safe becomes the perfect base for whimsical Big Stitch Quilting. Using a dotted fabric makes even stitching easy!

The pattern is called Dot2Dot Tablet Sleeve and can be downloaded from the Coats website.

Designer Linda Turner Griepentrog, says about the piece:

“It’s all about dots on this handy zip-top tablet case—they form the basis for the whimsical design stitching. Bold Hand Quilting thread accents the polka dots with across-the-dot stitching and connects the polka dots with big stitches. The case is lined and padded for safely stowing your technology. Sans technology, it’s a great pouch for carrying almost anything, from a light lunch to small sewing projects.”
