Creating Texture with Machine Quilting + Bonus Video

Cecilia sent me this beautiful quilt and asked me to custom machine quilt it for her. Cecilia did have some ideas in mind for the machine quilting and I was able to bring those ideas to life. That's what I love most about machine quilting!


Introducing - Strawberries Forever + Bonus Machine Quilting Video

I'm super excited to officially begin to introduce you to our new quilt patterns, that feature our upcoming fabric collection, Flourish. Flourish is by Natalia & Kathleen for Moda fabrics and will be in stores fall 2018.

Today I get to introduce you to one of my favorite patterns, Strawberries Forever. I love this fun pixelated looking strawberry, and even though it may look like a lot of piecing it actually went together pretty quickly!


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.
