I hope you had wonderful holidays. This is just a short post today to tell you that I’m guest-posting over at We All Sewtoday on Friday (sorry – change of plans!) with a free step-by-step quilting tutorial there and below. Last month when I visited I could tell from comments there was a lot of interest in learning how to quilt feathers – so today I have an easy and forgiving variation of a feather for you. It is one of my favorites – a swirl feather!
You can get step-by-step instructions for quilting a swirl feather by clicking here or on the picture below and you can see more pictures and a few videos by visiting We All Sew on Friday!
Hi everyone, I hope you are having a lovely holiday season. I was playing on Q24 yesterday and stumbled on something really fun I thought I’d share with you. Quilting free-motion holly leaves!
Oh my gosh… it is so much fun! And you don’t have to be an expert to do it since leaves are pretty forgiving. (I used my Sparkle line for Benartex and Aurifil 50 wt. cotton thread.)
I made a video for you guys…
But if you are like me you like to have a visual reference close by while you are quilting, so I also made you a free handout. To get the pdf delivered to your inbox click here or on the graphic below. (But don’t worry, if you are already on my list for updates it won’t send you a duplicate emails.)
And that you have a chance to win a copy of the book right here by leaving a comment on this post before midnight on Sunday, November 15th, telling me your favorite allover free-motion allover pattern. It can be one you enjoy quilting or one you’d like to learn. (And don’t forget some stops on the FMQIdea Book blog tour are still accepting entries!)
One more thing… if you already have the book thank you for purchasing it and I hope you enjoy it! If you do, please consider leaving a review on Amazon’s site. I would really appreciate it.
