These patterns are intended to be used as background textures behind applique in the center of the quilt blocks. Each one stitches to the center and then out to the boundary along the same path so they are ideal for use behind applique and motifs using a trim, fill, mask, or similar method.
Each variety—Wave, Radiating Lines, and Lines and Pearls—comes with three border options. Standard (or square), curved or reverse curved. These patterns each start in the upper left corner and stitch into the center and out for each arrayed line. When used with a trim or mask feature, they will stitch inward and stop at the trim line you create and reverse stitch back out to the border.
