As you may know, the primary goal of The Inbox Jaunt is to take the fear out of Free Motion Quilting. I try to do this every day by offering tips, techniques and ideas for you to try.
My second goal is to Ban the Stipple!–that (nasty) wormlike quilt motif that is so hard for some of us to stitch.…I try to do this every Tuesday with new step-by-step tutorials..
With my two goals in mind, I was thrilled when Quiltmaker Magazine (FW Media) asked me to do an online Webinar on free motion quilting. I jumped at the chance. On Wednesday, March 18, 2015 at 12:00 CST we go live with:
|Meander No More: Learn to Free Motion Quilt With Confidence|
I am so excited to offer this course to talk about the essentials of free motion quilting. It’s chock full of tips and tricks, products and ideas….You know me…I could blather on for hours–Unfortunately, they’ve made me trim it back to under an hour (for now…) with time for live questions…
I really hope we’ll have a good showing from The Inbox Jaunt…so mark your calendars!
MYSTERY QUILT EPILOGUE
Now back at home…we’ve been finishing up our Mystery Quilt-a-long (Spool Samplers).
However, if your first grid didn’t leave enough room for YOUR thread collection…
This time, I used a wavy line instead of the (oft-maligned) Zig-zag.
Since I’m also working on an owl tutorial for next week, I tried a sampling of different owl doodles…
Maybe you could do a sampler of leaf motifs…or flowers…don’t limit yourself to spools. Just think of all the cool wall hangings you’ll have in your sewing room!
Also….mark your calendars! March 18, 2015!
WHO, WHO, WHO’s excited?
