Celebrate National Sewing Month and Align Your Free Motion Quilting Stars

Greeting fellow quilters
I'm thrilled you've stopped by!
*
Let's Celebrate National Sewing Month!
*
As part of the celebration, I'm excited to share a new recipe with you
on Moda Bake Shop
 - also -
we've got a great Giveaway &
some special Free Motion Quilting deals
at the end of this post.
*
First... on Moda Bake Shop
you'll find my very own
Bake Shop Basics for
Free Motion Quilting
on a home machine.
*
The Recipe is full of tips, tricks, and
troubleshooting ideas to help
YOU
Align Your Free Motion Quilting Stars!
*
If you've attended any of my
Workshops or Trunk Shows 
some of the ideas may sound familiar.
I hope you find them helpful.
*
Sharing is a great way to celebrate
National Sewing Month!!
Do hop on over and check it out...
I would love your feedback.

Later this month we'll meet again at Moda Bake Shop to quilt something together.  
Won't that be fun?

In the meantime, here are a few tidbits of information about one of the cute projects shown on the MBS post.
Let's call it "Pretty in Pink - Grunge"
Pretty in Pink - Grunge
I use this petite whole cloth quilt as a sample for teaching
free motion Feathers and
free motion Rulers and Templates
on domestic machines.
*
It's really rewarding to play and create fun new samples!
*
The Details...
Moda Grunge Fabric
(my favorite - isn't it beautiful!)
Aurifl 40Wt cotton thread on top
Aurifil 50Wt in the bobbin
Brand New 80/12 top stitch needle
Quilters Dream Wool (2 layers) 
The QP Curve Templates
The QP Edge Templates
(by Linda Hrcka of The Quilted Pineapple)
*
Did someone mention a Giveaway?

The Process - An Overview
Showing The QP Curve Template & Janome Ruler Foot
Pretty in Pink - Grunge was created using acrylic templates to guide a special free motion quilting foot on my domestic machine.  
*
If you've not tried quilting with templates or rulers, you're missing out on a great creative avenue.  
*
Consider learning the basics of ruler work by taking a class at your local shop, viewing online *free* YouTube clips and/or jumping on-board with a Crafsty class or two (see suggestions below).  

In this piece I used Aurifil 40Wt thread to add a bit of jazz to the quilting stitches.

The curved crosshatching and diamond shape were quilted using
The QP Curve Templates
by Linda Hrcka of
Sew Fun!!
The outside swag was quilted using two sizes of QP Curve Templates
Oh! and I love the beadboard border.
It was stitched free motion using The QP Edge Templates -- there are 3 sizes of straight rulers.
*
I adore the look of beadboard
(on a wall or a quilt).
The inside of the quilt is finished off with Fast Feathers... 
*
I so enjoy stitching these lightly spaced feathers and tendrils inspired by Bethanne Nemesh -- a variation of "Nemeshing".
See Bethanne's amazing creations by clicking here.
Fast feathers are quick background fill that look really classy...   
and don't take all day to quilt out.   
*
Do let me know if a quick tutorial on this would be helpful.
Now for some fun...
*
My com padre and friend Linda Hrcka 
Karen & Linda at AQS Syracuse July 2016
graciously provided a full set of QP Edge Templates 
The QP Edge Set -- Oh you will LOVE THEM!
to give away to one lucky reader.

  1. I enjoyed.reading your free motion tips that you published today. I especially appreciated your detailed information I Am just venturing into free motion quilting and find the tension issue to be standing in the way of my being able to improve. The tips on having your machine flush with the table makes a lot of sense and is probably another reason I'm struggling but when I see pieces of work like your small pink quilt I think it's worth trying to figure out. Thanks for sharing.

  27. Pick one?? Love the pillow, just beautiful! Love the chevron twist quilt, and the center of chevron shuffle. Your quilting is beautiful and very inspiring! Please continue to share.

    ReplyDelete
  28. It is so hard to choose a favorite because they are all so beautiful!! However, if I had to pick one it would be the bright pink sample "Ruler Work with Free Flowing Flowers" because feathers have always been a favorite of mine and ruler work is something I have long wanted to do. I just can't imagine being able to do that, but hopefully this old dog can learn a new trick!! Love all your work and thank you for so generously sharing your tips with us.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Love getting your blog on email. Body position, that's probably my biggest problem, thanks for the tips. Would love to see a video on those free form feathers & try rulers!

  31. Your quilting is amazing! I love them all but having to choose one is so hard. Your Cone Flower needle appliqué is gorgeous. I love the feathers placement. Thanks for the tips. I've never used rulers before and would love to give it a go after seeing your beautiful designs.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I love all your work including the recent Pretty in Pink in Grunge, Chevron Shuffle, and Simply Spring Fleur. Your quilting on a domestic machine is beautiful and inspiring. I haven't tried template or ruler work yet. My struggles with tension, needle, etc. are discouraging then I go to your blog and website and feeling positive again.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Your Moda Bakeshop post was very helpful. I am not fearless when it comes to fmq on my home machine but have tried something new with each quilt I make. None of my work is "professional" looking but it's all mine and full of love. I especially liked your very little bird piece. I could see many quilting possibilities for a quilt that size! I may start a tryptic today!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I have been FMQing for many years but was just reminded of several things that I should pay more attention to. I have been tempted to buy the rulers but just can't do it yet. Love your work.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Love the REDBIRD AND BERRIES PROJECT - GORGEOUS!!!

  61. Although I love cardinals, your Feathered Galaxy just sings for me. I see ocean waves rushing up on the beach at Sanabel Island in that piece and part of it is the fabric color. Thanks for all the tutorials you do!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Such beautiful quilting! My favourite would have to be Feather Galaxy, although it was a tough choice! Thank you for all the inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I love the beautiful quilting. I just can't seem to get the hang of machine quilting. I so want to learn this but time and maybe patience plays a big part. I will keep trying. The pink grunge piece is beautiful, I wish I could take one of your classes. Going to be in St Louis anytime soon?

    ReplyDelete
  85. Those QP rulers have been on my wish list for many many months now. It's hard to decide thread or rulers. Well you have to quilt so you need thread first. Rulers still on wish list

    ReplyDelete
  86. So many beautiful quilts to choose from but I do love birds so I would have to pick Red Bird and berries mini quilt. Thanks for the giveaway!

  89. I have always loved your Simple Spring Fleur. The piecing as well as the quilting was beautiful. I would also love to see a tutorial on your free feathers and how you fill in odd shaped spaces with those. I would also love to win the quilting templates from Linda. You have taught me so much since I started following you. Thank you for all you do!

  93. The feathered borders on your garden quilt are spectacular. I have never tried rulers and think I will try the class by Angela so thank you for the discount. You are generous to share your knowledge and talent

    ReplyDelete
  94. Hey Karen, I follow you on IG--your quilting is very inspiring, as is your enthusiasm! My favorite piece on the Moda post is the red cardinal, I know you do that one a lot. I have the QP curves, but no straight rulers. Thanks for the contest.

    ReplyDelete
  95. The Chevron Shuffle is amazing! I'm pretty good at stippling, but really need to expand my abilities and these rulers would go a long way to helping me do that. Thanks for a great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  96. I like the Redbird and Berries Mini Quilt.
    Thanks for sharing your talent.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I have been following on Instagram, you have been very inspiring for my own doodle time and quilting those doodles. I would love to be able to add some ruler work to that. I will have to say that A Quilter’s Doodles with Needle & Thread are my favorite. It brings out the quilter's creative side and personality more I think.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Although I've long been enamored of your Red Bird & Berries quilting project, I really liked the Feather Galaxy with circles on the aqua Grunge pictured in your Bake Shop FMQ Basics posting.
    I love using Quilter's Dream Wool batting also. I just haven't tried 2 layers of it yet.
    THANK YOU again for your wonderful, helpful tutorials!!!

    ReplyDelete
  107. My fav is probably the cone flowers because I love cone flowers in all shapes, sizes, and mediums, LOL. But then my eye caught the chevron shuffle, hmmmmm. A new favorite? Do I really have to pick just one?

    ReplyDelete
  108. Karen....all of your quilts on the blog are exceptionally stunning, but I am particularly drawn to the chevron with a twist.....I have a chevron quilt on my "to do" list as well as some applique and this ties the 2 together so beautifully....thanks for the inspiration!!!

    ReplyDelete
  109. Oh my gosh how do I choose!!! Cone Flower fell in love with and attended your class for needle turn .. the Chevron with a twist the wonderful flowers I remember being in awe then after the trunk show how to make them! Every creation you do is so unique and inspirational. I really can't pick one with all the feathers and other free motion designs that leads me to thank you so so much for the class I attended for FMQ you are the BEST instructor as before then I had never quilted. Thanks again for all the tips and tricks.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I love the "Hearts Content" cushion, you are truly inspirational, thank you x

    ReplyDelete
  111. Definitely the Chevron Shuffle, although your "doodles" are great too.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Well, this is like answering 'which of your children do you like best?'!!!!! Your designs are wonderful and the quilting exquisite, and you know I have used your family tree pillow in wall hanging variations, but I am a bit partial to cardinals so lean towards the Redbird and Berries mini-quilt. You are a continual inspiration and generous to share so abundantly. Thank you! Ruth from Michigan

    ReplyDelete
  113. Like them all but the Redbird & Berries mini is my favorite. You are such an inspiration and if I will practice more, I will get better. Someday I hope to get to the ruler stage! Thanks sew much! Diane
