Video Tutorial: How to Quilt the Fried Egg Filler from Quilted Joy

My latest longarm quilting video tutorial for APQS is online. I think you’re really going to love the Fried Egg Filler!

The Fried Egg Filler was inspired by folk art fried egg applique. Watch the video below to see how to quilt it.

How to Quilt the Fried Egg Filler

Really simple right? We start with a nice long stem with a small circle. Head back down that stem and begin a wavy ring echo around it. I echoed around my rings one more time then I was off to my next fried egg.

Rule Your Quilt: Quilting with Circle Rulers from Quilted Joy

Adding circular motifs to your quilting can give fabulous results. The perfect symmetry of a circle really draws the eye and the circle itself can be a container for beautiful free motion quilting. But quilting a perfect circle can be a bit challenging. That’s where quilting with circle rulers comes in!

25% Off all Digital Quilting Designs from Quilted Joy

Digital Quilting Patterns available at QuiltedJoy.com

I love the creative possibility that comes from computerized quilting! When I’m custom quilting you’ll see me use a mix of hand guided free motion quilting and computerized quilting with my Intelliquilter. It allows me to include intricate motifs that can be easily repeated and adjusted through out the quilt. Every quilt is it’s own creative puzzle and I love watching it all come together!

When I first opened my online store, the only products I sold were my original digital quilting designs. All of these designs could be used on computerized quilting systems like Intelliquilter, Quilt ...

Fun Quilt Classes with Decorative Stitch in Michigan from Quilted Joy

Recently I traveled to Michigan to teach at Decorative Stitch for two days. This is the home shop for my dear friend and co-host on Love of Quilting, Sara Gallegos. I’m always nervous walking into someone else’s classroom. There are technical concerns like hooking up my computer to their projector and making sure the classroom is set up so the students can see and hear well. I should have known that Sara would have an AMAZING classroom space. What a treat! Of course, my biggest concern is that I want to do a great job for my students ...

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.

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 ...
