You might have noticed my Good Measure Quilting Rulers popping up in shops! There are 8 different sets, and all feature a non-skid backing and two colors of markings. Here are some videos to show you more…
You can ask your local shop to order these rulers from Brewer Sewing. I always support local shops because they are the lifeline of our industry. If you don’t have a local shop I have a limited number in my store, but if you have a local shop, you can save on shipping.
Later in the week I’ll show you a preview of my holiday collection for next year – can’t wait! There is a sampler that is similar in feel to Sewing Room Sampler that is such fun to sew – I hope you’ll love it!
And speaking of holidays – hope yours are merry and bright!
The winner of this giveaway is Sharon Krulitz! Congratulations, Sharon! Send me your address and I’ll get your prize on its way!
So a question in my Facebook Group, Quilting with Amanda Murphy, the other day reminded me that there was a Jubilee quilt that I never blogged about. Actually I never even photographed! Whoops! So I’d like to belatedly share Technicolor in the reds and golds of Jubilee!
This one is super simple (in reality is is a huge wedge-quilt) and it just glowed one it was done! It was quilted in Aurifil thread on my BERNINA Q24 but it would actually be just as easy to execute this one on a domestic machine by quilting around the circles and then quilting the liens that radiate out from the center. What really makes the quilting here is the contrast between the straight line quilting and the free-motion. Really the free-motion could be anything from meanders to paisleys to just loosely following the design on the fabric, which is what I did here. It is the CONTRAST with the straight line quilting that creates the energy here.
One of the best things about this pattern is that once you create the wedges for one quilt, you are left with the reverse of those wedges so you can make a second quilt just with the addition of background fabric! In fact, when I made this quilt I was left with a set of wedges that I’m going to give away – details below.
This looks so different from the original Technicolor pattern I made in Free-Motion Fantasy, doesn’t it? It is always amazing what color can do…
If you are lucky enough to have a local quilt shop you can order the pattern through them, because I always like to support them if possible! If you don’t have a local shop you can find the printed pattern here or the PDF pattern here. (PDF patterns are 25% off for CYBER MONDAY in my shop using the code THANKFUL.)
So that is it – now for the giveaway. Just comment below telling me about your favorite quilting notion. The one you can’t live without. A winner will be chosen randomly from the comments. Just to get you started, mine might be my weighted seam ripper. LOL but seriously it is! One entry per person please. This contest will be open until midnight this Saturday, December 1st.
Hi everyone! I’ve gotten inundated with emails asking where people can find the Jubilee fabric collection. As many of you know, this collection sold out at BERNINA University, but a whole bunch more arrived in the US to be bolted and shipped this past week, so I thought it would be a good time to ask Benartex for a list of shops that placed orders. (BERNINA has a 6 month exclusive on this collection and it will also be popping up internationally in a couple of months.) Also, shops can order kits of the quilts below from Benartex (even if they don’t order yardage) for delivery in December, so now would be the time to ask them to place an order!
Keep in mind this isn’t a complete list as shops can also order through distributors and I have no way of tracking those orders.(If you are a shop who isn’t included on this list please private message me in my Facebook Group, Quilting with Amanda Murphy, and I’ll add you.) Also, this is a list of shops that have yardage. It doesn’t necessarily include shops that ordered Jubilee 125th Anniversary Quilt kits from BERNINA.
So, without further ado, the following shops in the US have ordered Jubilee:
Alabama Robin’s Sewing Shoppe
Arkansas Amy’s Fun Fabric & More Roger’s Sewing Center Sew in Heaven The French Seam
Arizona Quilt n’ Sew Connection Sun Valley Quilts The Bernina Connection The Quilt Basket
California Authorized Vac & Sew Quilt’n Thyme Sew & Vac Redlands Sewing Center Sew Hut Sewing Arts Center The Quilter’s Studio Upland Vac & Sew
Colorado Cortez Quilt Co. & More High Country Quilts The Presser Foot
Delaware Hayes’Sewing Machine Company
Florida Bee’s Quilt Shop & Studio Byrd’s Nest Quilting Margie’s Sew Much Fun Once Upon A Quilt Paula’s Fine Fabrics The Stitchers Quest
Georgia Atlanta Sewing Center Augusta Sewing Center
Wisconsin Bigsby’s Sewing Center Brubaker Swg & Furniture Sew Much More
Jubilee will be shipping internationally in December. It is a bit more difficult for me to find out where they ship internationally since I’m completely depend on international distributors to send me that information but if you are having trouble you can post in my Facebook Group, Quilting with Amanda Murphy, and I’ll see if I (or a dealer who is in there) can help.
