Quilting in September!
What beautiful weather we are having here in New Hampshire. It's the prettiest September I can remember in a long time. I am busy with my quilts, filling special orders. Below are the quilts I have been working on.
I love these mice. They are an original design by my artist niece, Wendy Mierop. They have such character.
If you haven't already done so, check out my Lovie Lap Quilts with Pockets. These make the best gifts for your Mom or Grandmother. Christmas is coming! I also sell the pattern for the Lovie Lap Quilt. I hope you give it a try. Until next time, keep quilting and enjoying the beautiful fall weather.
Free Motion Quilting Sampler
I am in full swing quilting mode now that I am back home from spending the summer in Maine. I have just finished a patchwork quilt full of free motion quilting designs.
Each of the squares has a different free motion quilting pattern. What fun I had. I have learned all my free motion quilting techniques from Leah Day with her online Craftsy (http://www.craftsy.com) classes and her videos from her website http://www.freemotionquilting.blogspot.com. I highly recommend Leah as a teacher. She has a great gift for teaching.
Just recently Leah has started making her own videos for sale. Make sure you check those out too!
I use a Janome 7700 for all my quilting, piecing and free motion quilting. The Janome 7700 has a larger work space (11 inches) for your quilt to fit in while you are free motion quilting. I love this feature.
I spend as much time quilting my quilts as I do piecing. I'm so glad I discovered free motion quilting. It's one of my favorite parts to making a quilt. I hope you give free motion quilting a try!
I have been quilting for close to 30 years and after loosing my job twelve years ago, I am now able to do what I love, QUILT! I specialize in baby quilts and have designed the "Lovie Lap Quilt" with pockets.
