Quilting with Rulers! Learn to finish your quilts on your home sewing machine from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Finishing your quilts on your home sewing machine with beautiful results is absolutely possible with rulers! We’ve already done a video on using rulers on your longarm to create beautiful, precise straight lines, now we’re showing you how to get started on your domestic sewing machine.

I love rulerwork quilting because it makes me look better than I am. When you use them, your ruler foot is always in contact with the side of the ruler, which means you can get perfectly precise straight lines and curves every time.

In this video I show you the tools you ...

Fortunate Impromptu Shop Hop from Bonnie's Girl



Since Wednesday I have managed to visit 5 different quilt shops without leaving the state, participating in a planned shop hop, or even traveling on a bus tour.  Wednesday, I traveled from my little town to nearby Hannibal, Missouri--yes, Mark Twain's hometown--and spent a few minutes in both of the quilt stores in historic downtown.  Both Bits and Pieces and The Hickory Stick are nestled in the midst of the Mark Twain Museum and surrounding shops and carry a fine array of the best fabrics and patterns.

 Last night, a friend and I went to the northwest corner of ...

My Amara/Angela Adventure Day – Oh, My! from Just Sayin' Sew

It’s impossible to describe such a fabulous day.  Thus it’s taken me several days to write about it!  I hardly know where to begin….. maybe the beginning?

Angela Walters came to my house.  I just need to pause here for a minute.  Like wow.  She’s a quilting celebrity to me and I’m one of her, no wait, I’m her biggest fan.  And she came to my house.  Sigh.  I’m still pinching myself.  And she’s wonderful and amazing and so fun and full of laughter.  She made the day the most special it could ...

Squirrels and July plans from Quilting & Learning

Even though I have tons of projects on the go, I can't help but be sidetracked by new shiny colourful things!


Squirrel project

My Squirrel project this month is a lovely pouch called "Selvage Love" that was designed by Kristy Lea of Make Modern Magazine.

I've been wanting to make something with selvage strips for a while now. This seemed like the perfect little project. I added a pocket to the inside lining so it should be useful. 

If you're wondering why I called it a "Squirrel" project, it's ...

FMQ, design wall and a quilt-along from Quilting & Learning

Batik Quilt

As I mentioned in my last post, I liked the Feather Meander pattern so much that I used it in my third batik quilt. I've really had a blast quilting it, until I ran out of thread :-(

Here it is, about half quilted.

I used the Feather Meander that I learned from Angela Walter's FMQ Challenge Quilt Along. I wanted to use an all-over quilt design on this quilt, since I had never done this before. This is a perfect FMQ design that you can make as large ...

Free Motion Challenge Quilt Along update from Quilting & Learning

I've got a lot of projects on the go, but they're not really at a stage to include in a post yet. So here's one update:

Free Motion Challenge Quilt Along with Angela Walters

I've really enjoyed the weekly videos that Angela produces, even if I haven't watched them or practiced them in order. Since I'm behind anyway, I've decided to start with the ones I like.

From Week 7 I did both the Swirl and the Feather Meanders

March finishes and April beginnings from Quilting & Learning


I've had a great time with a friend. A weekend full of playing, gabbing and eating. Of course the playing involved textile - and even paint!

Colour Vie Pigment System

In the fall, Gunnel Hag was a guest speaker at the September Out of the Box meeting. She is a textile artist who became allergic to commercial dies. She worked with a company to develop the Colour Vie Pigment System which is water-based and eco-friendly. I bought a starter set at the meeting and was hoping to visit my girlfriend, the artist, to try these out. Well my girlfriend is ...

Street Art My Way is finished from Quilting & Learning

I am happy to announce the finish of a 2014 UFO, Street Art My Way (aka "Not playing the supporting role!" quilt). It's not one of my oldest UFOs but I'm glad that it's done since it's going to be my quilt to cuddle under when I'm reading in the living room.

February FMQ Finish from Quilting & Learning

My OMG (One Monthly Goal) for February was to finish free motion quilting (FMQ) my "Not playing the supporting role!" quilt. I did it with one day to spare. Sometimes I think that I'm crazy for setting an OMG, but on the other hand, it was reached this month (It would have been very quiet here if I hadn't reached it - so no big deal)

Project Updates and News from Quilting & Learning

It's time for updates on some ongoing projects.

Hexies

I was busy working on free motion quilting after my holidays, but then got attacked by a nasty flue bug and was out for the count. After a week of only reading cozy-mystery novels, I was finally able to work on my hexies.

Progress on my Hexie Runner
I attached the last two flowers and am now working on the white border. I think that it's long enough because I'm now tired of working on it

A week into the new year and I've got my work cut out for me. But it's all good! I'm getting caught up on projects that were MIA, and I'm learning some new things along the way. Here's what's on my list for first quarter finishes for 2018: 1.  Finish up this colorful table runner.  I picked this up as a kit at the quilt shop in Sisters, Oregon, about three years ago. This week I found it again

Animal House and a Giveaway from Sew Preeti Quilts

The quilt was completed on Sunday but taking good pictures was a challenge due to limited daylight hours.  And then snowy or cloudy weather AAAAARRRRGGGHHHHHH.
I am dying to show this one.  Here is the flimsy.

A beautiful day
Here is the back story of the quilt.
You know that Angela Walters is the queen of FMQ. Since I do not FMQ, (not even to save my life), I had not dived into the pool of Angela worshippers but admired her beautiful work from the sidelines.

But when Angela Walters joined forces with Craftsy (I am an affiliate) for the ...

WIP No More from On The Go Quilting

I borrowed that title from A Quilting Reader’s Garden blog.  She was just showing something that she had finished and I’m so proud of myself for the finish I have today that I decided to use that for a blog post name too.

If you have followed me for the past 7 years (oh my gosh, 7 years of blogging-mostly regularly), then you remember I used to write a lot about projects I was working on and sharing with my Threadbias quilty pals.  That group was a big part of my quilty life and I still miss that ...
