Good Morning, Quilters!
Please join us for the 25 week free motion quilt-a-long based on my new book 25 Days to Better Machine Quilting!
Starting on Monday, June 15, 2020, we will cover one chapter a week to help YOU improve your machine quilting skills and knowledge! Whether you are a beginner or more advanced quilter, there are tips, techniques and hands-on learning to advance your skill. Each week here at LoriKennedyQuilts.com, I will offer more photos, links and support of the materials offered in the book.

BEST Way to Learn FMQ
In my humble opinion, he BEST way to learn machine quilting (free motion or long arm) is by following the formula:
- Receive Feedback
- Repeat Practice
Machine quilting is a skill that can be broken down into smaller skills and techniques. Each lesson in 25 Days to Better Machine Quilting is an in-depth review of a technique or material. Chapters include topics like “Adjusting Your Machine for the Perfect Stitch” and “Hand Position”. Other lessons include information about choosing the right batting and thread for every quilt. Quilt design and custom quilting are also covered. (And so much more!!!)
After reading the lesson, each chapter includes hands-on quilting practice. The projects illustrate and reinforce the lesson and allow YOU to test the theory in your own sewing room using your own materials. Most lessons include suggestions for doodling and then move into a fun project to complete in an afternoon.
Feedback can come in many forms. First, I recommend that YOU look at YOUR own quilts with a critical (but loving) eye. (More on this later.)
You might also want to find a quilting buddy or small interest group within your quilt guild. (Friends and family are often better at seeing the good in our quilts and are not as distracted by the small faults.)
Join the Quilting with LKQ Facebook group! In the Facebook group ( a closed group) you will be able to easily post photos, see other student work, and receive feedback from me and other students.
Once you’ve tried a technique on a little project, you will be ready to use the skill in YOUR quilts. The ultimate goal of 25 Days to Better Machine Quilting is for YOU to quilt YOUR quilt tops!
By the end of 25 weeks of machine quilting, I GUARANTEE–YOU will be a better machine quilter!
I am so certain of this that I will give your book money back-if you do the lessons and you don’t see improvement. (Won’t happen-LOL)

Doing a Happy Dance!
