What would you like to see quilted? Plus new patterns!

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a happy holiday season! We just decorated our tree and our house is looking very “red and aqua”. Yay!  Kind of like this quilt from my first book Modern Holiday that just became a cover girl. It is part of a new book from C&T called “Use Your Yardage” with projects from a variety of authors.



I have five of these over in my shop so if you are interested check them out.

Also new to my shop is my Fall Market pattern “Northern Lights”.  This new one is a FAVORITE of mine and, if you are really fast, you might be able to stitch it up in time for Christmas – the design isn’t Christmas specific so can be kept out all winter long!  The pattern includes SVG files as well as traditional tracing diagrams and the fabric pictured is from my Nordic Holiday collection. The fabric won’t ship until spring but this pattern is available now.  If you love this collection please ask your local shop to order it.   I used 28wt. Aurifil thread from my Appliqué Collection for these pieces, using stitch #1329 on my BERNINA 780.  I then quilted it on my favorite BERNINA Q24.

Starstruck is also redone with a new cover – it was just perfect for winter so I couldn’t help myself!  This one is 2-1/2” strip friendly!  I’ve now stitched this one in both Feathers & Flourishes and Northern Holiday – it was so fun to quilt!

The two larger new patterns for this collection, Starry Night and Nordic Row Sampler, which you might have gotten  sneak peak of in my Fall Market 2016 post, will ship first quarter of the year. You I’m thinking of doing a quilt along with one or more of these Nordic Holiday patterns in my Facebook group this coming year. Are you in? I hope so.

Also in my Facebook group, I’m currently taking ideas from you all on what quilting motifs you would most like me to catch on video. I recently did feathers but there are a ton of different motifs out there and I plan to start doing more videos in the future. So please chime in and let me know what you’d like to learn how to quilt!

I hope you and your families are enjoying all the baking, making, and merriment the holidays bring.  Happy quilting!

  1. Good Evening Amanda! I am very new to your blog, but am enjoying everything I see and read! Sorry, but I do not do but a tiny bit of free motion quilting and it is nothing to talk about. LOL. Thank you for sharing all that you do, I know I will be watching your videos and searching your blog to see what I have missed. Have a wonderful creative day!

    1. Thanks so much, Brenda!

  2. I would like to see you write a book on your quilting designs using the westalee rulers (for example). I attended Sew Much Fun class in NC you taught. Love the quilted designs you brought to share with us. I took cell phone photo of a few to study later. They are super beautifully done and very detailed!!! Love your creativity using the rulers and would like to see more quilting design ideas that you can one up with to help us new quilters finish our ufo’s and to use on future projects. I actually think that I could handle doing some of the quilting using your designs. And rulers. How great that would feel!!.

    1. Thanks so much Jill! You never know what the future holds regarding the book. My lips are sealed!
