Sew the scrappiest quilt ever using your smallest scraps and a roll of calculator receipt paper! I first saw this idea on Pinterest and I didn’t believe it could be done until I tried it myself. Here’s a free tutorial…
Learn how to quilt a flower motif on all your quilts! This is the last video in my Color By Number Quiltalong video series where I show you how to quilt an easy flower motif. You might be able to quilt this flower design using a ruler that you already have, so I’ll show you how to quilt it using 2 different quilting rulers from my collection. I’ll also show you how to easily quilt this design without a quilting ruler at all, so don’t miss the video!
Free motion quilt echoed squares on all your quilts with this fun and easy quilting design. This is the perfect design to quilt if you are getting started with quilting rulers, but even if you are still quilting without rulers, I’ll show you how to quilt it that way too!
This is week 15 in our Color By Number Quiltalong where we are free motion quilting a new designs each week on our Color By Number Quilt (free quilt pattern)! Find all of the CBN Quiltalong videos here.
Last week in our Show Off Saturday Linky Party I shared some pictures of my Juki sewing machine on a Grace Frame. To my delight, some of you shared pictures of your sewing machines and Grace Frames too! The most surprising picture in the linky party was by far the one that got the most clicks… it was a 15-91 Singer sewing machine loaded up on a frame.
Free motion quilt a fern in a square with this fun and easy quilting design. I love how the curvy lines give it a lively organic feel, and every fern you quilt will look a little bit different – that’s part of the beauty of it!
Free motion quilt a sunburst in a square with this fun and easy quilting design that can be quilted with and without rulers. True, I really enjoy the really straight lines that ruler quilting can give me, but this design is just as easy to quilt without rulers too.
Are you curious about the BSR – Bernina Stitch Regulator? It’s an amazing sewing machine foot that helps you keep your free motion stitches an even length. I used it to quilt a sweet meandering design on some of the blocks in my quilt and made a quick video to show you how!
Quilt a sweet meandering quilting design that includes a little heart every now and then! This design is even easier than a regular free motion quilting meandering design because if you get quilted into a corner you can just ‘heart’ your way out of it. It’s like stitching love into your quilt!
I’ve been sewing, and sewing, and sewing but I’m not finished yet. This is my friendship star quilt that I’m making using the blocks I made with my easy Friendship Star Block Tutorial. The fabrics are from the Grace collection by Anna Griffin. Aren’t they gorgeous?
And I have a silly confession…
Straight line quilting is the easiest way to finish a quilt and it’s especially great for beginner quilters. After spending so much time making a quilt, you can confidently quilt it yourself in straight or wavy lines. Here are 4 easy variations on straight line quilting that I think YOU will love. When you take straight line quilting to the extreme, you get matchstick quilting.
