Holland Quilt - Edge to Edge Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

It's that time of year again. International Quilt Market is this weekend, that means our screens will be full of new yummy quilty inspiration. I won't personally be attending Quilt Market this time around, we've got a family memeber getting married, wait we can't wait to see all of the beautiful pictures from the show.

This quilt is a fun one that I recently quilted for Vanessa of Lella Boutique called Holland. The tulips are adorable, so cute that they actually make me want to do some curved piecing. :)

UQSM - 2018 - Quilt Show in Sandy Utah!

Last week I spent the week in Sandy, Utah teaching at UQSM. So far this year I've been traveling and teaching quite a bit this year and after this event I'm feeling more energized and excited about the future than I have in quite some time!

At the show I taught four, hands-on classes, Beginner's Guide to Free-Motion Quilting, Next Steps In Machine Quilting, Creative Background Fillers and Visual Guide to Free-Motion Quilting Feathers. I had full classes and my students were fabulous. I loved watching them improve on their machine quilting skills from the beginning of class to the end of class, it's so gratifying to be able to witness the light-bulb moment.

Introducing Flourish - A Fabric Collection by Natalia Bonner & Kathleen Whiting for Moda Fabrics

I'm so excited today to share our newest fabric collection, Flourish by Natalia Bonner & Kathleen Whiting for Moda Fabrics. 

Like our first fabric collection, Thrive for Moda Fabrics, Flourish is made from all the colors we love and love to use in our homes. The prints are mostly line designs based off of my machine quilting designs. The prints in Flourish are great as stand alone prints, or they can be fabulous blenders, they are great to blend with your favorite fabrics.

Little Cottontail - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner + Introducing Patreon

Vanessa of Lella Boutique designed and made this darling Little Cottontail mini quilt. The bunny is so dang cute, and Vanessa has an adorable coordinating large quilt pattern coming out in May! You can check out more details about this fun pattern over at Lella Boutique.

Over the last few months I've had a lot of fun sharing my machine quilting with you all over on YouTube. I've loved sharing there and the positive feedback that I've received from so many of you has been so fabulous and has pushed me to share even more of my work via video. 

I've been searching for the right platform to share more and I feel that I've found the perfect fit for me, Patreon. Don't get me wrong, I will still be sharing a lot of my work on YouTube, but in my new Patreon videos I'll be sharing more about my process. I'll share more of my thought process, help you understand how I decided to quilt what I quilt where I do and hopefully teach you take you own machine quilting to a fun new creative place.

Jolly Tartan Plaid - Edge to Edge Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner + Bonus Video

As much as I love custom machine quilting, and I really enjoy free-motion quilting I do feel that there is a place for edge to edge machine quilting. This quilt is the perfect example of that, at lest in my opinion. 

The quilt is darling but between the pattern and the fabrics there is a lot going on, if I were to do custom quilting, most likely it's just going to blend into the fabrics. So, I feel that quilts like this, and quilts that are going to be "loved" meaning washed and used a lot, edge to edge machine quilting is the perfect fit.
