Which Foot is Best for Microstippling on a Longarm? from The Free Motion Quilting Project

I’m running a quilting experiment this week as I practice quilting Microstippling on the longarm. I’m quilting this design with the three different feet from Grace’s hopping foot set to see which one works the best at Microstippling. Check out the results in this quilting tutorial:

I’m quilting on the grace Qnique 14+ / 15R and stitching on the Continuum quilting frame. I love this machine because it’s very simple to use and has been the perfect size to see if I would like quilting on a longarm frame. Click here to learn more about this ...

Amy's Quilting Juggling Act from Free Motion Quilting Adventures

Hard on the heels of teaching at the Janome Education Summit, I've been dabbling in quite a few quilty projects, though only a few or them involved quilting with rulers or ruler work. Click on the above link to read about the summit and links from other fabulous participants.

Janome passed along some photos from the event, so I thought I'd share them with you too. The Summit was my biggest class yet in teaching free motion quilting with rulers. Thank goodness we all had the same machine (Janome 9400), ruler foot and the Janome Ruler Work Kit ...

Quilting with Rulers: Ruler Thickness Revisited from Free Motion Quilting Adventures

I was poking through some of my websites and videos recently and came across one of the videos I did just before ruler work really hit the mainstream of the quilting world.

I think this was shot with prototypes of the Westalee ruler foot and rulers, just as they were bringing them into the American market.

It's a bit rough and loooong....but does a good job at showing why I don't toe the line when it comes to what rulers work with a low shank sewing machine. This was done on a Janome 3160, a smaller Janome ...

Quilting with Rulers: an Update from Free Motion Quilting Adventures

I taught another Quilting with Rulers class this week and it gave me an opportunity to get out my samples from my Craftsy classes. While my local students get to see samples and designs from both of my classes, the actual class they take only covers the basics of ruler work, which equates to about half of similar material from my first Craftsy class, Quilting with Rulers on a Home Machine. (Coupon Details: Get 50% off the full retail price of select Craftsy classes taught by Amy Johnson. Cannot be combined with any other coupons. Expires January 31, 2018.)

Quilting with Rulers: Curves on Hexagons from Free Motion Quilting Adventures

Time to get back up on the blogging wagon! I've been so busy since getting back from the Janome training in late August and them absolutely focused on learning my new machine. I really didn't think I'd move on from my beloved Janome 8200, but when the newest top-of-the-line Machine from Janome was rolled out with not only a ruler foot, but a ruler work mode....well, I was smitten.

As a dealer, I do need to know these machines and I just knew I was going to be on this machine too much to call it ...

Wow!  I had the honor of being one of five U.S. quilting teachers selected to become a Westalee Design by Sew Steady Accredited Teacher. We spent two days training with Leonie and Bill West, the creators of the Westalee Design ruler foot and template system for domestic machines.
