Good Morning, Quilters!
Today we are going to learn how to quilt a retro car pattern. It’s an adorable addition to any quilt!
A reminder and an update.
Book PRE-ORDERS! Shipping in June!
I am humbled by the overwhelming response to the upcoming release for my new book, 25 Days to Better Machine Quilting!
The orders have been pouring in to my Etsy shop, and we have order from all 50 states and seven countries!
We are all anxious and excited to see the book–however, please remember that you have placed PRE ORDERS! The book will be released the first week of June. As soon as I receive the books from Martingale, I will begin shipping to YOU!
So if you haven’t received a shipping notice, it’s because we don’t have the books yet!
As many of you have heard by now, NBC has decided to phase out Bluprint–formerly known as Craftsy. I am deeply disappointed. John Levisay, the CEO of Craftsy sent a letter to instructors on Friday and followed up with a letter to students on Saturday (check your mailbox!). In the second letter he said NBC plans to pro-rate and make refunds to subscribers and are working on a solution for people who purchased individual (forever) classes. Perhaps they will send a flash drive or DVD? I’m just guessing (and hoping).
I will update you as I know more!
How to Quilt a Retro Car
Today’s tutorial is sponsored by BERNINA and can be found on the BERNINA USA blog, We All Sew HERE.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to win a copy of my book at We All Sew!
The tutorial on WeAllSew includes a close-up video of my fingers quilting the motif. (Just to prove it’s not an automated pattern-LOL!)
Doodle First and a Challenge
Doodle first! It’s the key to machine quilting!
Create your own cars-Pump up the tires, change the shape of the trunk and hood, etc.
Challenge– Can you create a convertible? and a Jeep? What about a pick up truck?
Have fun with the Retro car pattern–
Remember, when YOU have fun quilting, your quilts are more fun!!!
