One of my goals for this new year was to get things organized so I could put my Free Motion Quilting for Beginners class online. I finally got the recording done, for sit down and long arm quilters and, during the editing process, the seriousness of our current global crisis became very real in our… Continue reading Free Motion Quilting Class for Beginners
The last few times I've begun writing a post here I've felt the need to mention that "it's been a while since I wrote...." and it happened again yesterday when I realized how much time has passed. I've been feeling like I'm so "far behind" on sharing news and photos here. But am I really?… Continue reading Happy New Year!
I recently finished this project for a client, making good use of my Gammill Statler Stitcher for the custom quilting both in and around the snowflake tree.

I quilted this Dream Big panel for a client and decided to do it on my sit down machine so I could share the process and hopefully some inspiration with those of you who quilt on domestic… Continue reading Dream Big Panel Again!
Just wanted to share this cute baby quilt I worked on this week for a client who requested a combination of computerized and free motion quilting. She wanted custom quilting on the inner panel and a digital design for the outer edges. And she chose wool batting which gave this quilt so much texture! I… Continue reading Custom Quilting on a baby quilt panel
I've been inspired by several talented machine quilters over the past few years since I began my journey - Natalia Bonner, Angela Walters, Sharon Blackmore, Judi Madsen, to name a few! - and when I'm working on a quilt using techniques I've gleaned from a particular video or class I always like to mention it… Continue reading Progressive Detail Quilting
Happy Hump Day! (yeah, I know, sounds kind of weird but I'm told that in the present day that's what working people call Wednesday...getting over the hump for the week!) I recently posted this short video on Youtube - sped up, of course - showing some playtime free motion quilting I did on a practice… Continue reading Free Motion Graffiti Quilting
