~ Making Mini Design Boards Tutorial ~ from Podunk Pretties

I'm a day late but it's done finally.  Due to my busy week and my forgetful mind I forgot to take pictures as well as the video.   In my spare time this week I'll try to figure out how to pull pictures from a video, if it's even possible.  It might be just as easy to make another design board.  Video editing is new to me so a lot goes into making these short videos.  Bare with me as I learn this new skill.

5-Minute Gift Card Holder Video Tutorial from Crafty Gemini

My apologies for the late blog post. I was so tired last night and didn’t get a chance to write it up. We spent yesterday tending to one of our family cows, Gracie and her newborn calf! The kids and I sat and ate our breakfast outside while watching this first time mama do a fabulous job birthing her little heifer calf. They named the little girl, Cinnamon and are enjoying loving on her. They are both doing well but my schedule just got a lot tighter with all the milking I’ll be doing from here on out ...

To make the quilt you just strip piece your fabrics into a large tube and then cut them apart to create the “around the world” part of the quilt. Then by picking seams in a specific order, you get a cool look of the fabrics spreading out across the quilt.

To make it modern, instead of having the fabrics fan out from the center of the quilt, it ...

How to Quilt Twin Tulips – Video Tutorial from Quilted Joy

Are you ready for a new longarm quilting video tutorial? You may remember the last video showing how to quilt the Daffodils design (if you need a refresher, click here to watch the video again). My newest design, called Twin Tulips, is a variation of those simple elements. Check out the video below.

In the video, I was quilting inside a 2 inch sashing space. Within that space, I used my mechanical chalk pencil to add lines every 2 inches. This created a series of 2 inch squares within the sashing. I like adding these registration marks to keep my ...

Free Motion Quilting with Stencils video tutorial! Master the stipple and leaf meander from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

When you start free motion quilting, you are told to just do an all over meander, keep everything curvy and don’t overlap your lines. It sounds easy to someone who has been quilting for a while. But to a true beginner, that can be very intimidating.

You have to learn how to create smooth even curves, pointy points and move around the quilt top with an even quilting density without backing yourself into a corner all while keeping your stitches small, but not too small with a consistent stitch width. That’s a lot to handle if you’ve ...

There’s nothing better than an easy pattern that looks complicated. 18 Carat fits that bill.

18 Carat is made with a 10-inch square pack and coordinating yardage. The pattern is named for the sparkling gemstone look created by grouping the layer cake squares into color groupings.

With instructions this easy, 18 Carat can be put ...

Hillside Video Tutorial – Uses 2 Jelly Rolls! from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

A couple of years ago I was invited to come interview Kaffe Fassett, Brandon Mably and Liza Lucy at the opening of Blanket Statements, an exhibition of Kaffe’s quilts that traveled the U.S. You can read all about it by clicking here.

I live in the Midwest, where traditional quilting reins supreme. Walked into the exhibit hall was a transformative experience. The walls filled with bright bold color, where neutrals were optional and when they were used, hot pink was a perfectly acceptable.

I felt like I had finally discovered fabrics that spoke to me and that I ...
