Come Sail with Me! - Quilted Works Quilt Cruise!

April 2-9, 2016 I'll be cruising with Quilted Works! I'm so excited about this event and would love to have you join!

Quilted Works is very excited to be offering a Quilting Cruise! We would love for you to join us on this sewing voyage where we will enjoy a 7-night Eastern Caribbean Cruise. You will still be able to enjoy all the amenities of the ship and the shore excursions. Then, when we have "sea days" we will all be busy sewing!


Scrappy Flower Quilt - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

Okay, friends! Don't fall off your chair in shock, I'm actually back to blogging. I had no intentions of taking almost two weeks off, you know I'm generally pretty regular at updating the blog. The past two weeks have been a bit crazy for me.


Metropolis - Cabin Fever: 20 Modern Log Cabin Quilts

Metropolis is a fun way to show off your favorite solid-color fabrics. This also could be a beautiful Americana quilt in more traditional reds, whites and blues.

Metropolis is another fun pattern from our book; Cabin Fever: 20 Modern Log Cabin Quilts. I really love the crisp white and gray fabrics, they create a really modern feel, but when the blocks are put together with the red corners a red star is created and I love the traditional feel that gives the quilt.


Thankful - A Fall Quilt - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

With fall knocking on my door I guess it's only appropriate to be machine quilting fall quilts. This adorable quilt was made by the ladies at my local quilt shop, Quilted Works. They have a super cool laser so they are cutting kits for this adorable quilt with the laser. Super cool idea, the applique pieces already have fusible on the backing so once you get the kit you're just about ready to start sewing, saves so much time and headache.


Goody Goody Binding Kit!

My friend Vanessa from Lella Boutique has a darling tutorial on her blog for this fun Good Goody Binding Kit

Most of you know that I don't bind my own quilts, I send them to my mom, but when I saw how adorable Vanessa's binding kit was I just had to make one.


Merry Christmas - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

It's Christmas in August! Really, though, the other day I saw a little note saying that Christmas is in like 18 weeks! This year has gone by so fast. I really can't believe it's already August.

I've been busy this week custom machine quilting some adorable quilts, and this one did not disappoint. Donna made this adorable quilt, again, like most of her quilts she's got some amazing hand applique.


Floating Cabins - Cabin Fever: 20 Modern Log Cabin Quilts

Grab a few of your favorite solid colors, cut your strips and begin sewing! This quilt is made from large pieces, so it sews together quickly. The block arrangement in this quilt creates a secondary block with a framed-square look. This would be an easy, yet interesting quilt for a beginner.


Nonchalant - Cabin Fever: 20 Modern Log Cabin Quilts

Nonchalant is an easy one-block quilt made in just tow colors plus white. Make blocks in two color-ways that are almost negative images of each other to create a lively addition to any room. Choose tow of your favorite fabrics and a nice neutral background color, and you'll be ready!


Modern Building Blocks - Red & White Version - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

If you've been following Sheri from A Quilting Life you probably already have seen this gorgeous quilt in the works. 
Over the last several months Sherri has been making the very popular Moda Modern Building Blocks Quilt in all red and white fabrics. I'm sure most of us feel the same, but there is just something so classy and timeless about red and white quilts, and this one is no exception, it's gorgeous.


Introducing - Next Steps In Machine Quilting

I guess maybe today I'll spill the beans..... Next Steps in Machine Quilting, will be in stores in December. I'm pretty excited about this book, it's a companion to my very first book; Beginner's Guide to Free-Motion Quilting.

I've been wrestling around with this idea since Beginner's Guide was published, back in 2012. The timing just didn't feel right. Finally last fall I felt like it was right and I began writing. I hope you'll love this one as much as you've loved Beginner's Guide. 

Next Steps in Machine Quilting is available for pre-order here.

I will be teaching machine quilting classes at Road to California, in January, 2016. There are still openings in my Beginner's Guide to Free-Motion Quilting class on Monday and Tuesday and a couple of spots left in my Next Steps in Machine Quilting Class on Wednesday (update, Next Steps to Machine Quilting is sold out.)
