Hey quilty friends! I hope you're all having a great week. I'm headed off to teach a few classes at QuiltCon this week and I'm so excited. If you're at QuiltCon make sure to come say, Hi! Besides the five classes that I'm teaching I will also be doing a book signing and machine quilting demo on Sunday! So, if you're there I hope to see you.
I'm also excited to share another fun video featuring my new 4-N-1 machine quilting ruler. Today I'm using the medium size curve to quilt this fun block. I love this block because you could just stick with the first layer of curves and keep it simple, or continue adding curves and really dress up the block. You could also use the smaller or larger side of the ruler to quilt the same design on smaller or larger blocks.
Dorinda made this beautiful modern star quilt and brought it to me for some custom machine quilting.
Dorinda didn't have anything in particular in mind for this quilt, she just really wanted some straight lines coming out from the appliqued stars to really make them crisp looking.
This quilt has a lot of color and I knew again, that this would require several thread color changes to make it look great, or else, I could use some MicroQuilter thread and just use two thread colors on the whole quilt.
Jenn has been working on this darling Farm Girl quilt for the past year or so and recently brought it to me for some edge to edge machine quilting. Jenn did a fabulous job piecing this quilt and her fabric choices are so cheery.
When Jenn brought me this quilt she asked me to machine quilt it for her with an edge to edge pattern, she wanted something with paislies and asked that I quilt the quilt with a light gray thread.
Happy Thursday! I've got another quick video tutorial for you today. Today I'm using the smallest curve on the 4-N-1 machine quilting ruler and showing you step-by-step how to quilt this fun border.
Raquel made this beautiful star quilt and bought it to me for some edge to edge machine quilting. Raquel did a fabulous job piecing this quilt and asked me to machine quilt her quilt with an edge to edge Clam pattern. She'd never had any of her quilts machine quilted with this pattern and has been wanting that pattern.
Hi quilty friends! I hope your week is going well. I've got another fun machine quilting tutorial today that I've created using my new 4-N-1 machine quilting ruler.
In this tutorial I use the top, larger side of the ruler to quilt this design. I love that this design is pretty simple, but it adds so much to any square quilt block. You could even dress this block up by adding a fun motif to the center or some fun fills to the outside curved areas, oh the possibilities are endless!
Katie made this gorgeous version of the Social Butterfly quilt. I've quilted a few of these fun Social Butterfly quilts and had fun with each one. Every time that I machine quilt one I think, ohhh, this is the best one yet, and then I get to quilt another one and it's just as great as the one before. :)
Nancy made this beautiful Medallion quilt and sent it to me for some edge to edge machine quilting. The quilt was actually a block of the month through Craftsy.
I've machine quilted a few of these beautiful quilts and it's been so much fun to quilt each of them.
I've got another fun machine quilting video featuring my new 4-N-1 machine quilting ruler. I've been having so much fun with this ruler.
Today's video is a fun triangle block and I show you how to use the straight side of the ruler. Also, I've got a few bloopers at the end, so you'll want to watch it all the way through.
