Drafting Cable Designs


Fourteen page detailed guidance for drafting cable designs.

Includes grids of various sizes & Mastergrid.


Cable designs are a popular choice for quilting sashing and borders, whether you stitch by hand or machine. However, purchased stencils are rarely the correct size – so learn how to draft your own!

The Drafting Cable Borders page gives you ideas of the different types and styles that you could achieve, illustrated by examples from my antique quilt collection.

This pack of detailed set of step-by-step instructions explains how to draft a cable using Carolyn’s specially designed grid so that it will fit your quilt perfectly.

Several possibilities for turning the corner in an integrated way are included.

The drafting grid is supplied in a variety of common sizes ready for you to print out.

Also included in the pack is a .doc file with the Mastergrid, which can be adjusted  to any other size if you have Microsoft Word on your computer. This enables you to draft cables of any length, width or style for your own projects. (Note that you do NOT need to purchase this separately). If you cannot run this type of file on your computer, it is available on request in an alternative .svg format, which can be opened in programmes such as Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape.
