2016 FMQ Along - Deadline Extended

Hello fellow quilters and thanks for stopping by!

As many of you know I was away at 
International Quilt Market last week
(So inspiring !! See my Quilt Market Instagram shares here)
while Giveway entries were open for the
2016 Free Motion Quilt Along
using the Lewe's Balloons Growth Chart 
by World of Susybee. 

Since we're all a bit new to the Linky Party interface on the blog and many of you don't have blogs of your own, there were a few technical difficulties linking up your completed projects.   

This combined with my being
away at Quilt Market 
made me a bit uneasy to hold true 
to the original 
Quilt Along Giveaway Entry
deadline of May 23rd at Midnight.

Therefore, I've decided to extend the deadline by 72 hours, giving you more time to email your project image to karen at redbirdquiltco dot com -- or redbirdquiltco at gmail dot com.

There's no need to have the project completed, just send me an image of what you've done so far -- by May 26th at Midnight Eastern Time (about 48 hours from now).

If you have any questions please do email me at one of the addresses above...

Best of luck!  I'll be doing a random drawing on Friday for the winners.

You can see the Giveaway Post and Linky Party entries here.

Good luck to all!
Karen

Woohoo! APQ Podcast with Pat Sloan and A Quilter's Doodles Published!

It's been a whirlwind of a few weeks here in Redbird Quilt Co. land but today I'm excited to share that I've been invited to chat with Pat Sloan, "The Voice of Quilting", on her weekly Podcast for American Patchwork & Quilting (aka All People Quilt).  Woohoo!  
I Know!  Is that Crazy or What ?   

When Pat emailed me I about fell over...   I've listened to Pat's shows for a while now, especially when one of my Quilty Mentors is on, like Wendy Sheppard & Karlee Porter, and Lisa Bongean, and Carrie Nelson (Miss Rosie's Mom)... Just to name a few from recent shows.

Anyhow -- with working full-time it's sometimes hard to steal away for the live show -- so it's nice to know you can always listen later. 

For tomorrow though (Monday, May 9th) I'll be on at 4pm Eastern for a 12 minute segment and following me are some amazing talented ladies!!
Oh Goodness.... !!
I was already excited to be chatting with THE Pat Sloan but when I saw my image on the same page as these other ladies I was really humbled.      

I'm a bit nervous but here's the scoop: 

Pat and I are going to be chatting a bit about Free Motion Quilting
 and a bit about my history
 -- and we'll sneak in a snippet about my newly self-published
(with A LOT of help)
collection of my hand-drawn quilty doodles
(thanks for all your encouragement on this)

Book Front: 
Back Cover:
I hope to have a few tips to pass along too!

A Quilter's Doodles is made up of 20 of my
 #dailyquiltydoodles
shown on Facebook and Instagram for the last several months.  

I doodle at night or early morning
to enhance my Free Motion Quilting skills
and learn and practice FMQ motif.  
Doodling helps build muscle memory so when you're stitching the designs out you don't have to calculate the motif as you go... 

Here is one of my more recent doodles... from March 2016: 
A Quilter's Doodles I - March 8th, 2016 - Copyright 2016 Redbird Quilt Co.
A Quilter's Doodles I
is available to purchase
 on my Redbird Quilt Co site
... you can see a few more sample pages there too!  
It's all very exciting and I'll be sure to share a bit more about it after the show.

Yes -- back to the show!! 

If you can,
tune-in just before 4pm on May 9th.  
You'll find the live Podcast on this page ==>  Live PodCast
In case that doesn't work here is another => Live Podcast II
And just in case -- here is a direct link to Toginet
where the banner across the top has
the current live show playing => Toginet APQ Radio

If you miss out on the live cast I'll be sure to share a link to the show archive when it is available.

From the bottom of my heart....  
Many thanks for supporting my quilty adventures and crazy pathway
to where I am now.   
From blogging, to applique, wool,
free motion quilting to tutorials, 
Moda Bake Shop & other 
pattern design, teaching and sharing --
-- it's been a really fun ride and 
I hope to keep giving back to all those that gave to and supported me.

Hugs my friends -- until tomorrow.
Karen

2016 Free Motion Quit Along - Part IX Finishing Steps

Greetings Fellow Quilters!
&
Welcome to Part IX of the
2016 Redbird Quilt Co.
Free Motion Quilt Along
using the whimsical 
Lewe's Balloons Growth Chart
by Susy Bleasby

Many thanks for your patience the last 2 weeks while I traveled from Eastern NY to Western NY sharing my love of quilting with Guilds and Shops along the way!
I'm pretty blessed to travel around sharing what I love with others -- sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming.

In the final installment of our 2016 FMQ Along we're talking finishing steps for the World of Susybee
Lewe's Balloons Growth Chart Panel.


But FIRST !!

If and when you're done quilting the final border on Lewe's Balloons I REALLY want you to follow these instructions!!
  1. Take a step back
  2. Admire your work
  3. Really -- admire your work!   You Did It!!
  4. Now go to a mirror and give yourself a "high five" for walking through this beginner Free Motion Quilt Along and making it to the very end --- WOOHOO!!

If you've quilted along from the 1st to the last session you deserve a BIG pat on the back!   Great job!

You can read all about that  ==> here

****

Finally -- lets talk finishing steps...
They include:

1. Squaring-Up the quilt top
2. Preparing a Hanging Sleeve
3. Prepare and attach the Quilt Binding
4. Prepare and attach a Quilt Label


In lieu of writing tutorials for each of the above steps I've decided to describe and/or refer you to some of my favorite tutorials that cover the finishing steps...

1. Squaring up the Quilt top -- the objectives of "squaring up" include:
  • determining the length and width that the quilt top can be trimmed such that you'll have the same width across the top, middle, and bottom of sections of the quilt and the same length to the left and right of center   
  • determining the length and width of the quilt that will allow roughly the same amount of final border showing around the perimeter of the quilt   
  • ensuring that your corners are cut at a 90 degree angle 
In my Lewe's Balloons Sample Growth Chart I was able to "square-up" to 51" tall by 27.75" wide and with appx 3.75" of the Green Dot border showing all the way around.
Use a large square ruler, a LONG ruler, and a good rotary cutter to "square-up" your quilt.   You may have to "fudge" the squaring along the way -- you'll want to be sure that your corners are at a 90 degree angle.   "Fudging" means you may have some corners or lengths that only have batting showing (and not top or back) -- but that is OK as long as the binding will cover that area.  The main thing is that your quilt is "square", that the corners are at a 90 degree angle and that the width and length measurements don't vary from top to bottom or side to side.
I normally start on a corner of the quilt -- and double check measurements and ruler placement to ensure that I'll end up with a 90 degree angle in each corner.    If you need detailed instruction for "squaring-up" a quilt top there are several different YouTube and written tutorials available online.  I also talk about it briefly in my Family Tree Quilted Envelope Pillow tutorial on the Moda Bake Shop.   You're also welcome to reach out to me via email for help -- I would be happy to help if I can.  My email address is available at the bottom of the post.

2. Preparing a Hanging Sleeve....  

NOTE:  The sleeve instructions below are not quilt show approved....  Preparation of an AQS Approved Quilt Sleeve can be found here.

Image shows the beginning of the sleeve process.  I cut a 8" tall by WOF piece to begin.
For quilts used at home or gifted... my standard way of preparing a quilt sleeve is:
  • Cut the sleeve fabric 8" tall by the width of the squared quilt minus 1 inch
  • Fold the short ends of the sleeve fabric over twice at .5" (each fold) and machine top stitch to make finished short edges
  • Fold the sleeve in half length (long) wise with wrong sides together.
  • Center and position the raw edges of the folded sleeve at the top of the quilt sandwich on the back and pin or baste in place -- be sure it is centered left to right.
  • The sleeve will be sewn to the quilt back when the binding is applied
  • Once the binding is complete, hand sew the bottom and sides of the sleeve to the quilt back -- leaving the outer layer of the short edge open for the rod.
For our Lewe's Balloons Growth Chart I suggest you start with a raw edge sleeve 8" tall by 27" wide -- once it's sewn into the binding it will finish to be 3.75" tall by 25" wide.  

3. Preparing and attaching a quilt binding...  

Oh there are so many ways to make and attach a quilt binding.   The most common method is detailed in this Moda Bake Shop Binding tutorial.

PLEASE NOTE:   We planned for binding strips 2.25" wide and sewn on with a 1/4" seam allowance.   The referenced Moda Bake Shop tutorial assumes the strips are 2.5" wide and sewn with a 3/8" seam allowance.   You can follow the Moda Bake Shop tutorial step by step -- except you'll cut your strips 2.25" wide and use a 1/4" seam allowance.   (If you have enough fabric to cut your strips 2.5" wide, you can follow the Moda Bake Shop tutorial exactly as written).

For our Lewe's Balloons Growth Chart Binding:
  • I cut (5) 2.25" strips by Width of Fabric
  • I sewed the 5 strips together (end to end) with a mitered connection - this reduces bulk when you're attaching your strips to the quilt top.  (See Moda Bake Shop tutorial above). 
  • Once your strips are sewn together end to end and the seams are pressed open, fold the binding in half lengthwise (wrong sides together) and press
  • Now align and pin the raw edge of the binding on the raw edge of your squared quilt on the front side of the quilt (machine stitch to the front and hand stitch on the back). 
  • See detailed instructions for the remaining steps in the Moda Bake Shop recipe.

Label -- it's really important to label you're work.  I normally include these items on my quilt label:

  • Name of Quilt
  • Name & Location of Person who made the Quilt
  • Name of Person who quilted the quilt (if different than the maker)
  • Date the Quilt was completed or gifted
  • Name of Person the Quilt was gifted to
I've tried many times to make a hand-written label and I never seem to be satisfied with them.  For quilts that won't require extensive washing and drying I use the computer to prepare and print the label on fabric.   I've written a tutorial for preparing a label with your computer, you can see it ==> here ==> Printed Quilt Label Tutorial -- sew fun!

Ok then -- once you've completed these steps you've made it to the end game.

In the next few days I'll be posting a recap of our Redbird Quilt Co 2016 FMQ Along AND having a Linky Party so you can submit entries for the Giveaway.   If you don't have a blog, Instagram or Facebook account you can submit your entries to me directly (email below) and I will post them for you so you are eligible for the giveaway drawings.
Great job everyone!! 

Take care now and Keep on Quilting!
Karen

Weekend Workshop Warrier - Do you FMQ ?

Just back from a really great time with the Wiltwyck Quilter's Guild in Kingston, NY and I'm heading out the door for

I'm really excited about the final Workshop of the Weekend.  On Sunday I'll be sharing Free Motion Quilting Basics using The QP Curve Templates by Linda Hrcka of The Quilted Pineapple.

All Quilt Samples were quilted with
Aurifil Thread and
using Quilters Dream Batting...

Quilting with Rulers - Class Review and Discount Code

Greetings Fellow Quilters & Welcome!

Continuing with my Quilting Classes -- Class Review Series
I recently finished this Online Class
by Amy Johnson
You may know Amy from her blog - Amy's Free Motion Quilting Adventures

Amy shares a wealth of information on her blog so if you're looking to expand your understanding of Free Motion Quilting you may want to add Amy's blog to your stop.

Now Let's Talk Class Review!!

Some History:

Ya'll know I've been working with acrylic templates on my home machine for a year or so...

I fell in love with
"The QP Curved Templates"
designed by Linda Hrcka of
The Quilted Pineapple
when she blogged about them early in 2015.
Linda is an award winning, professional long arm quilter and I wear a "I wanna quilt like Linda" sign on my forehead every day!!

So....
I jumped right into using
The QP Curve templates
on my home machine,
finished "Chevron with a Twist" for
the Moda Bake Shop with them,
and
continue to use and enjoy them every day.

I even published a few YouTube videos highlighting how to use them:

Using rulers and templates on a domestic machine is a natural progression once you've leaped into Free Motion Quilting at home.

Straight and curved templates open a WORLD of options for FMQ designs on your quilts.
Home Machine Quilted: Simply Spring Fleur - Redbird Quilt Co 2016
With this in mind, the quilting world is crazy about Acrylic Rulers and Templates and anxious to learn how to use them.

Amy's Class is a perfect way to go from basics to borders with Acrylic Rulers and Templates.

Although Amy's class is demonstrated on a home machine, many of the tips and designs she shares in the class apply to sit down and long arm machines as well.

Let's review the content...
This is a great line-up of Lessons....

It's everything you need to get started
and then some!
Image Courtesy Craftsy
I especially LOVE that Amy talks "process".
In my opinion,
no class is complete without it.
In the very first lesson she covers the following Key Elements:
Foot
Motion
Rulers
Details... details...details -- I love them!

Amy starts with Ruler Foot options,
jumps into how to position
your hands and templates
AND
shares details on a variety
of templates and rulers.
Image Courtesy Craftsy
In subsequent lessons
Amy discusses and stitches
Straight line designs
Image Courtesy Craftsy
Curved designs
Image Courtesy Craftsy
and shares how to integrate
Free Motion Quilting with Ruler designs...

But even more helpful.... 

Border designs with Rulers...!!!

This Lesson is FULL of
great information and images.
And on the Craftsy platform you can
repeat lessons over and over again!!
 

Summary:

It's a GO!


This class is well thought out, has great information and demonstrations and will get you on your way to quilting with rulers and templates on a home machine!
