10 Rectangle Fun Quilt-Along: Machine Quilting

When it comes to how to quilt a project, it becomes really, really hard for me to give any advice. While this is probably the most enjoyable aspect of quilting for me (oops! right after my love for appliqué!), it is also a very personal experience.

6 Rectangle Fun Quilt-Along: Adding the Borders

First of all, I have to apologize – PROFUSELY – because I miscalculated the amount of fabric needed for the borders. Did you notice that in all cases I indicated 1 yard for the border? Umm… this would only apply to the crib sized quilt.

5 Rectangle Fun Quilt-Along: Piecing the Top

Now we have all our pieces cut out, it’s time to piece our top. If you are as lucky as I am and have a large table where you can spread your work out, it’s time to clear it off now. Otherwise, a bed will do. As you will see, this top sews together quickly, […]

    I am a self-learner. I taught myself to sew and to quilt. And I taught myself how to draw. I am learning how to dye my own fabrics and am dabbling with mixed media. I am a quilt designer and teacher, and design and publish my own line of quilt patterns. With this blog I would like to share the bits and pieces of my life.
