Quilting Rulers: Feathers, Circles, and a Ditcher from The Free Motion Quilting Project

Earlier this week I released three ruler quilting videos in one day! Learn how to use our new Ditcher, Feather, and Circle rulers by watching the videos below. You can also Click Here to find all three rulers in the Quilting Shapes Ruler Kit!

Let’s begin with the Ditcher ruler in this quilting video:

Cookie Cutter from Night Owl Quilting

I recently had the pleasure of quilting this gorgeous quilt for Leslie at Keystone Modern Creative.  The pattern is called Cookie Cutter by Jaybird Quilts and the fabric is Pedal Pusher by Camelot fabrics.  This quilt has such a different feel than the original cover design that features a white background with rainbow colours.

Leslie let me pick the quilting design, but I did check to make sure she was okay with feathers!

   I used a bead board design on the outer border to frame the quilt. 

The coloured diamond got continuous curves and a twirling feather motif filled the ...

Allie Owl from Night Owl Quilting

I quilted this cute owl wall hanging as my first project back to make sure my longarm was working properly after the move.  My friend Reneta pieced the top for me.  The pattern is by Elizabeth Hartman and is called Allie Owl.

The quilting on the owl was pretty easy for me to figure out, but how to handle the back ground had me stumped and ripping a bit.  I am really happy with the final design choice now!

I was asked by my daughter to make a travel pouch for her new wireless head phones.  I came across this ...

Scrappy Irish Chain from Night Owl Quilting

I recently completed this beauty for Reneta.  It is really hard to appreciate the scale of this quilt from pictures.  I have lovingly been referring to it as "the beast" while it has been in my possession as it measures 112" X 122"!

Reneta made this as wedding present for her niece who has a king size bed.  Here you can see it covering my queen bed.  If you are curious or want to recreate this quilt, just cut 5,832 - 2" squares and you are off to the races!

Reneta is normally a "no feathers" girl, but when she ...

Has It Really Been 52 Weeks Since Jan. 2? from Sew Karen-ly Created...

The scrappy 5-patch and snowball blocks are all sewn.  I have failed the 52 week challenge miserably, as I knew I would (and apparently others have too - right, Jeanne Kaye? :))  These blocks are a sew-along with A Needle Pulling Thread quilt shop in Digby, and the challenge was to sew one block a week for 52 weeks, using scraps from your stash.
The blocks went together quickly and easily, barely making a dent in the scraps.  I did have to purchase 3 Fat Quarters of cream as I didn't have enough 8" squares for the snowball centres. 
I drew ...

Help Me Name that Pantograph Quilting Design from AndiCrafts

I’ve been having so much fun lately designing new quilting designs! I love playing with different ideas and seeing what I can create. Usually I start by designing an overall or pantograph quilting design. (If you don’t know what that is, I talk about pantographs here.) Next I take one of the repeats and try […]

The post Help Me Name that Pantograph Quilting Design appeared first on AndiCrafts.

Quarter Sections in Tula Pink! from Night Owl Quilting

Amy made this funky version of our Quarter Sections pattern using Tula Pink's "Tabby Road" line of fabric.  I can honestly say it never would have occurred to me to piece this top, but that is what makes quilting for others so much fun!

Amy loves her Tula Fabric so of course there is more of it on the back!

Amy left the quilting decisions up to me, and because there was a plain solid border I wanted to have a little fun.  My version of 3's & e's (swirls) in the center and some casual feathers in ...
