Good Morning, Quilters!
I don’t want any commentary from the peanut gallery–(especially family…)–about the name of today’s tutorial…
Before we get to work…
QUIZ–FREE MOTION MACHINE QUILTING 1-2-3

Now the question is…how many of YOU read it thoroughly?
Did YOU read the Dedication page? (It’s one of the last pages of the book….?)
I’m not telling….YOU will have to see for yourself!

BERNINA AMBASSADOR BLOG TOUR
We continue our “Make New Friends” series with the BERNINA Ambassador blog tour…
Yesterday we met Kelly Ashton, Lynn Carson Harris, Diane Doran and Melody Crust...
Today you are in for a real treat!
Now don’t be gone too long….
We have a FEW LOOSE SCREWS to Machine Quilt!
Begin by drawing parallel lines–In the sample below, the lines are one inch apart.
Stitch a wavy line along the drawn line, then stitch a clockwise loop.
Continue stitch clockwise…
Around and around…as many times as you like.
Two or three looks nice…
But so does five, six, seven….
As you approach the drawn line…stitch another wavy line and begin a counter clockwise spiral…
(Does this look musical to anyone????–we may have a new motif in the works!?!)
Stitch a full row of Loose Screws from Edge to Edge…
Then add more rows…
The spirals can be all different sizes.
Be sure to Doodle first!
And get right on this one–we need it for next week’s tutorial–The Daffodil!
If you like Loose Screws--you may also like Silly Spirals
They are similar-Silly Spirals are a little easier to learn because there is a place to stop and think before your begin the Spirals. On the other hand, Loose Screws are a little more challenging to learn, but once you do, they are faster to stitch!
I know I say this all the time…but I think both of these motifs are my new favorites!
What about YOU?
Do YOU have any new favorites?
We’d LOVE to hear!
