New York Beauty - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

2018 has been a crazy busy year for me, I've traveled, quite a bit, I've taught, a lot and I've really had so much fun. With all of that there has been less time spent here on the blog, and to be honest, that makes me really sad. I love that blogging and sharing my work here is what really helped me start my career down the crazy path that it's gone down and I'm forever grateful for the blogging platform.

I'm slowing down the travel a little bit and with that I hope I'll be able to get back to sharing more here with you.

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.

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.
