Craftsy Guest Post – Tips on Free Motion Quilting

Did you know that Craftsy has a blog? And did you know that a lot of bloggers I follow share their knowledge there? I’ve been reading Craftsy’s blog for a few months now, especially the posts related to quilting because I can always learn something new. πŸ™‚

I was invited to contribute a post this week, writing about my favorite subject, machine quilting. Click here to read my blog entry and hopefully pick up a tip or two for yourself!


All of of the pictures I shared in the post came from tutorials and quilt alongs I’ve shared on my blog. It was fun to gather them together and use them to illustrate some of my favorite machine quilting tips.

Happy reading and quilting!

    great post, Christa! You know I absolutely admire your quilting, and that I quilt my own stuff too. I’ve been dipping my toes into some different FMQ designs, but they just haven’t made it onto a quilt yet!

    Thanks so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!

    Beautiful FMQing – want to learn new FMQ styles this year – yours are brilliant and encouraging as they are done on a ‘home’ machine πŸ™‚

    Your quilting looks great. I am mesmerized by people who can quilt big projects on home sewing machines. I don’t know what Bernina you have here but I know it is bigger than my 550 which has a throat plate of about 6″…no it is more but it feels like that as I can’t stuff anything in there. I will keep at it and check out the blog for some tips maybe!

    Thanks for the great tips Christa. I’m thinking about how to arrange and quilt my city sampler and it’s giving me a headache!! This has helped. Your swirls are beautiful πŸ™‚

    Love the Craftsy blog! Congrats to you for being asked to guest post!! I have often thought that you would be a great Craftsy teacher and that they should ask you to teach a class. I’d sign up for a class taught by you in a heartbeat!
