Many thanks to everyone that commented on the Free Motion Quilting Fun tutorial and blog post. I really appreciate your sweet words and feedback. Thank you so very much! My fingers are crossed that it helps those that want to Free Motion Quilt.
I hope you had time to peruse the fine selection of fabric panels and Aurifil thread at Bear Creek Quilting Company. I would love for you to find a panel that makes your heart sing and give the tutorial a try.
Be sure to send me a picture of anything you stitch and also feel free to send questions my way if necessary.
Special thanks to Bear Creek Quilting Company for providing the beautiful fabric, hosting the tutorial, and sponsoring the $20 giveaway.
Before you go...
An Announcement and another giveaway!
October 24th marks the start of the semi-annual Bloggers Quilt Festival hosted by Amy's Creative Side.
The Blogger’s Quilt Festival is an outlet for the online community to share their quilts, large and small, hand or machine quilted, traditional, art or original design. It's timed to coincide with Quilt Market in the fall and spring each year and runs for two weeks.
Your peers select their favorite quilts in each category and also select an Overall Viewers Choice quilt. It's really a fun time and a neat way to get inspired. (As Angie would say... "there's lots of eye candy").
You can enter two quilts per festival (in different categories). Peruse my previous Bloggers Quilt Festival entries here (Spring 2014 Entry 1), here (Spring 2014 Entry 2), here (Fall 2013 Entry 1) and here (Fall 2013 Entry 2) .
Click the Quilt Festival image above to read more and get involved. It's fun!! I know I will put something in this year - I'm just not sure what.
Another Giveaway!I have been meaning to use this Fat Quarter Bundle of beautiful Benartex "Bohemian Rhapsody" for a year now -- needless to say I haven't touched it (see below).
Sew in Love with Fabric". I couldn't wait to pair it with some neutrals and make a Chevron Quilt. But... as it turns out... no time.
