How-to Machine Quilt with Natalia Bonner via Fat Quarter Shop

While Kimberly and Chelsey from Fat Quarter Shop were in my studio they filmed a video of me machine quilting. 
As much as we all dislike seeing ourselves on video I really do appreciate the work that the girls at Fat Quarter Shop did in putting these videos together, it's really interesting to see yourself through a different perspective. :)

  1. I have watched this at least three times already. It is so neat to see you work on the long arm. I've never seen the process before. Thanks!

  2. You work this swirls and pebbles like no ones biz girl!

    Have you ever done a jersey knit quilt and if so, what design did you do?

  4. I've never seen someone work on a long arm before, and it was totally amazing. Your book has been on my Amazon Wishlist for-ev-er. And I finally bought it. I have two quilt tops to do, and I'm determined to give free motion quilting a try.

    But I am curious about the computerized quilting. Could it do an entire quilt top? Do you have to tell it where the quilt starts and stop, or does it somehow know? I'm kind of fascinated by that.

  5. OMG I'm in awe of your free motion quilting skills. That video isn't sped up is it? You quilt so quickly and neatly. I guess that's why you are a professional. You've no doubt had years of practice? But I also noticed your machine glides so much smoother than mine (and quicker). It makes mine seem clunky. I have to wonder if it's the operator, or the set up. Or maybe a bit of both!

  9. Fascinating. I will watch it at least twice more for the parts I missed the first time thru. Your stitch-work is so smooth and sure-handed. I am in awe, Natalia, week after week...

  10. Cool video! I love watching you work. It's so much more physical to quilt on a domestic machine... maybe someday I can get a longarm of my own. :)
