Milk Way Giant Template

The Milky Way Giant Template is continuous, with detours into the stars, and quilts easily and quickly. It's designed, especially, for Quilts of Valor, but you can see that it's very good for various quilt patterns.

The 2 small stars are optional. Registration holes for easy, accurate quilt advance.
You can also mount the quilt lengthwise on the frame, and get a vertical pattern layout. Good for bed quilts.

Milky Way Quilts by Carmen

Stitching outside the template. Pictures
I couldn't help myself. :P When I saw how much space was between the spirals on the new Circle Lord Milky Way template I thought, WOW! I can use the spirals as a spine and quilt feathers between them. This is a cool way to use the template. :cool:

The pattern is the Disappearing 9 Patch, Hobbs 80/20, YLI on top, Magna Glide on the bottom. This is the first time that I've quilted hooked feathers and I can sure use more practice, but it was fun to do.

I turned the quilt sideway to see how the quilting looked and think it looks really neat this way.

Military Quilt - Disappearing 9 Patch pictures

I've been quilting a lot of the guild's community quilts and we are starting to make more military tops so I got the new Circle Lord Milky Way template to use on them.

This quilt is made with the Disappearing 9 Patch pattern, 56" x 62", quilted with Hobbs 80/20, Rainbows RW&B on top, and Magna Glide in the bobbin.

I stitched the nested stars because I wanted to see how long it would take to do the full design. This quilt took about 2 hours which I thought was quick and the template was very easy to follow. Another super Circle Lord template. Great job, Michael!

I love the way the quilting looks and the swirls cascade when the quilt is turned sideways. It gives the quilting an entirely different look!

QOV Quilt by Kim Loar

"I am very active in my guild's QOV projects and in November started to longarm all of our QOV tops rather than sending them out. When I saw the new Milky Way Template I knew I had to have it. This QOV was 57X72 and took me about 2.5 hours start to finish. I am a new longarmer so I am sure it took me extra time plus I seem to always get interrupted to let my dogs out. I am looking forward to the next ones using this template- loved it!"
