Applique Flowers - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

Martine made this fun applique quilt and sent it to me for some custom machine quilting. The quilt was actually made from a double gauze fabric with cotton flowers applique'd onto it.

Because it was made with the double gauze fabric I knew that I needed to use a really soft batting to keep the quilt soft. So Martine and I decided that Quilters Dream Wool would be the perfect fit for this quilt.

Neck Tie Quilt - Edge to Edge Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner

I recently machine quilted this fun quilt for Jane. Jane made this quilt completely from neck ties. It's actually a bit of a memory quilt. One of her uncles was a funeral director, so he had many ties. He recently passed away so Jane used his ties to make this beautiful quilt.

Coming Soon-----My First Craftsy Machine Quilting Class

This past week I was able to fulfill a dream, a dream that I wasn't quite sure I'd ever be able to fulfill. I'm so grateful that I am able to team up with Craftsy to share my love of machine quilting with quilters all over the world!

You have probably noticed that the blog has been a little bit quiet lately. We'll I've been busy this summer, besides my kids I've been working all summer with the editors and producers over at Craftsy. Together we've created a machine quilting class that I know you're going to love. 

And, now that I'm back home from filming and teaching I'll start catching up on this blog! YAY!
