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. 🙂

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!

Guest Posting at She Can Quilt – Valentine’s Table Runner

Today I’m guest posting with Leanne over at She Can Quilt. I was first introduced to Leanne’s work when it won an award at QuiltCon so her style is really my cup o’tea!

I’m sharing my Love table runner which I machine appliqued and quilted. Developing more machine applique patterns has been on my list for awhile so I figured I would start the year off with a quick and easy Valentine’s Day project.

Be sure to check out all of the tutorials happening this week over at Leanne’s. They are all part of the kickoff for the 2014 Finish Along hosted by Katy from The Littlest Thistle.

Whoo hoo! Get your finish on!
