Rule Your Quilts with 15% Off Rulers! from Quilted Joy

I have so much fun quilting with rulers. The designs you can create with a simple ruler can be beautiful, intricate, and inspiring. This year I’m writing a series of articles for Quiltmaker Magazine all about machine quilting with rulers. Each article will focus on a different ruler and include multiple ways to use them with diagrams and even a free downloadable student packet with more designs! My first article is in the May/June issue of Quiltmaker and it’s available now!

Samplers Full of Stars from Quilted Joy

I’m always talking about shapes in quilts. Whether it’s circles, rectangles, or triangles. Any art student will tell you that any design or picture is essentially made of these basic shapes. But a standard composite shape that many quilts are made of is the star. Now when I say a star, there are lots of different stars that can be made for a quilt. Some of them even have names like a friendship star, Ohio star, or a Sawtooth star. The variety is what makes them amazing. You can fill samplers of all sizes with stars.

Introducing the Quilted Joy Clubhouse – An Online Machine Quilting Guild from Quilted Joy

Here in Louisville, KY I’ve been very fortunate to find lots of folks who love machine quilting as much as me. For the last several years, we’ve gathered together once a month to share that love of machine quilting. When we first started our longarm guild there were maybe 5-8 people coming every month. Now that group has grown to more than 20 people regularly joining us (and I’m running out of chairs for the crowd!).

I know that there are many machine quilters who are not this lucky. While they can usually find a quilting guild ...

Continuous Curves for Free Motion Machine Quilting Squares and Triangles from Quilted Joy

Some of the most common shapes in quilting are squares and triangles. If you want to free motion quilt on a longarm quilting machine or a regular sewing machine, you need to be prepared to take on those shapes. One way to handle them is with a gentle curve that is reminiscent of what hand quilters might call cathedral windows or orange peel designs. Take a look at how the following longarmers used a gentle continuous curve to travel between the points of a triangle. The resulting shapes that reveal themselves at the junctions of multiple blocks can be surprising ...
