Good Morning, Quilters!
The links for the Spring, 2017 machine quilting QAL (Quilt a long) are fixed and you can find them all in this post! Hooray!
As you know, we recently moved seven years worth of blog posts from The Inbox Jaunt to our shiny new site, Lori Kennedy Quilts.
Unfortunately, moving a website is the digital equivalent of moving a very large house cross country.
Some things get lost. Other things get broken. But once everything is all put in place, it’s worth it!
Oldies, but Goodies!
I plan to fix the broken links, dust them off, and post them along with new content.
While I hate to repeat myself…my kids may disagree…
I think it’s fun to review some of these old gems. For those of you who are new, these posts may be new to YOU!
BTW–If YOU find a “broken-link” post you would like repaired, send an email to Lori@LoriKennedyQuilts.com.
The Spring 2017 Machine Quilting QAL
This quilt a long is packed with lessons!
You will learn two ways to create half square triangles and two ways to size up a borders.
Then, learn why stablizing a quilt is important and how to do it.
Next, learn four ways to quilt half square triangles and three fabulous border motifs,
Along the way you will learn about thread, batting and other supplies.
And all of the techniques can be applied to much larger quilts!

Machine Quilting QAL
While there are many online quilt a longs, there are very few machine quilting QALs. This project is for YOU whether you are stitching on a domestic sewing machine or a long arm. Many of the techniques–and all of the motifs— are the same!
If you did the QAL in 2017, why not do it again?!
Change the colors and see how much you’ve improved!
Progress is more important than perfection!
What about YOU?
Are YOU ready to start machine quilting?
What colors will YOU use?
Have YOU ever made a quilt in a QAL?
We’d LOVE to hear!
I’m off to find some glue–a few broken vases.
