Today I’m continuing to share the 5 part series of articles that I originally wrote for the National Quilting association as part of my Quilt as Desired column. This article first appeared in the Summer 2015 issue of the Quilting Quarterly.

Great article! Love your email posts. You picked some great colors for your Aurifil thread box.
Something for quilters to explore is using the Babylock Sashiko. It sews on the top like hand quilting. Stitch length and spacing can be adjusted too.
I have never really designed my own quilt. I look at quilts and copy (in my mind) what they did or follow a pattern. I’ve started sketching one out, but haven’t put it into practice yet!
