Good Morning, Quilters!
Today we have more details about THE Quilt-a-long based on my new book, 25 Days to Better Machine Quilting.
Books are AVAILABLE on Etsy!
First of all, I would like to thank you all for the tremendous response to the book and the quilt-a-long! Our book sales in the Etsy shop have been incredible-so incredible that it appeared the book was sold out!
No need to worry, there are more books winging (or trucking) their way from Martingale in Washington to my HQ in Minnesota–and will be shipped to you within days!
If you pre-ordered 25 Days to Better Machine Quilting (before Friday, June 5) your book is on it’s way and many of you have already received your books! A few quilters did not get a shipping notification. We are looking into why this happened, but rest assured your book is in the mail.
Ebooks also Available
If you live outside the United States, shipping costs may be significant.
Please consider the Kindle edition available on Amazon HERE.
Also available on MartingaleTPP HERE.

Don’t Need the Book to Start the Quilt-a-Long
Please don’t worry if you haven’t received the book before we start the quilt-a-long on June 15, 2020! I will guide you through the first lessons and you will have a seamless start (pun intended) to the quilt-a-long.
Yesterday, (Read yesterday’s post HERE) I posted the concept behind the quilt-a-long. I think the best way to learn a new skill is by following the formula:
With that structure in mind, each week will loosely follow the schedule:
Mondays-Discuss the new skill, technique or material.
Tuesdays-Doodle and set up the new project
Wednesday, Thursday-Stitch the project
Friday-Open line discussion
Fit the Quilt-a-Long into YOUR Schedule!
The quilt a long will be available here on my website, LoriKennedyQuilts.com. It will remain here indefinitely. There are no fees and no sign-up is required. In fact, purchasing the books from my Etsy shop is recommended, but not required (though I hope you will!)
If YOU have a busy summer schedule, no worries…take the lessons at your own pace.
It doesn’t matter if you learn free motion quilting in 25 days, 25 weeks, or 25 years, (I don’t recommend the 25 decade method!)
The important thing is to keep practicing and learning!
Receiving feedback is an important part of learning a new skill. Perhaps you could create a small group challenge within your quilt-guild or find a single quilting buddy?
Be sure to sign up for the Facebook group page Quilting with LKQ.
Use the hashtags #quiltwithlori and #martingaletpp to see what others are quilting!
I guarantee you will be a better machine quilter in 25 Lessons!
