2016 Free Motion Quilt Along - Happy New Year!

Happy New Year -- Welcome 2016!  

2015 was an awesome year but now we're gearing up for 2016 to rock the house!!

For those of you new to, or just interested in Free Motion Quilting at home, we're firing up a short, simple, free, and fun Quilt Along for beginners.

We'll be using the Lewe's Balloons Growth Chart Panel by Susy Bleasby for The World of Susybee.

We've got some great sponsors -- that means great prizes!!

There'll be lots of FMQ basics and simple motifs, with NO PRESSURE, just FUN!

You can find all details by clicking the image above -- or my visiting:
Redbird Quilt Co. 2016 Free Motion Quilt Along

When we're done quilting you have a sweet Growth Chart to give to someone special.

Share with your friends -- we'll have a blast!

Find the details here.

Happy New Year all!


  1. Best wishes for a New Year! Good luck with the quilt along too!

  2. Happy New Year to you to! Love your plans. I did a quick search but didn't find specifics. If you want to send me the details, I'll share on My Creative Blogs.


    PS - I'm finding it really easy to follow you via, although I still follow you via a variety of tools.

  3. THis is great for those who want to try FMQ, Karen. So many are so cautious about it. I'm sure you'll show them that it's not as hard as people think, if like you say, they just look at it as fun. I'll be checking in to see how it's going. Happy New Year!

  4. You're a great motivator, Karen! Happy New Year to you and your loved ones :-)

  5. I have admired your work and do want to learn FMQ. Please sign me up for your new Free Motion QAL. Thank you and a very Happy 2016 to you and yours.

  6. I can't wait to start the QAL! Looking forward!

  7. Hi! I picked up my panel today
    Please sign me into the Quilt Along.
    Looking forward to this FUN event.

  8. I placed my order in the 8th and received the kit on the mail today. I'm ready for the FMQ class! Dixie

  9. Happy New Year to you as well! I wish you a lot of wonderful and colorful quilts in a new year:) Please, post more lovely photos on this blog to make us smile and to provide us with positive emotions for whole day!
