A couple of days ago, I received a sweet, sweet comment.  Thank you, Ann-Marie, for making my day.

I am happy to announce another giveaway today — a free copy of my online Learn to Machine Quilt class, produced by Annie’s.

Learn to Machine Quilt

Click here to read more about the class.  Shown in the following are the topics covered in the class.  This class is designed to help beginning machine quilters to get used to moving their quilt sandwiches.  It remains my firm belief that being able to maneuver one’s quilt sandwich is the key to enjoyable quilting on a domestic machine.

Here are a few images of the class sample.

Thanks for stopping by.  I am still working on Iron Man II (or Insanity, as Mary calls it).  But I am almost done piecing the top, woo hoo!

Hello Friends – I know you all are getting antsy Christmas is right around the corner, right?  According to the bookseller that comes to the church we attend, there were 150 shopping days till Christmas as of last Sunday!   Maybe that little fact would induce us to get ready for Christmas?   Well, I said all that to share with you today a fun little project I did for a Christmas in July blog hop at Benartex’s Sew in Love {with Fabric} blog!

Look at these adorable fabrics I got to play with.  They are from Benartex’s Holiday Magic collection.  Click here to view the entire fabric range.

But these fabrics aren’t it - they are just the supporting actors.  The star of the show are these patch prints from the same collection.  I have liked a lot of the patch prints that have come out.  But I realize sometimes they are hard to feature in a quilt design.  So, I have generally used patch prints as quilt backing fabrics.

But not for my blog hop project today — I made the patch prints my feature fabrics!! Here is a peek of my Christmas blog hop project, in hen-and-chicks style, sort of.

Head on over to Sew in Love {with Fabric} for further details!  Once there, don’t forget to enter the giveaway for Holiday Magic fabrics.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a fanta-bulous weekend, Dear Friends!

p.s.  Please don’t tell me you have started shopping/making gifts for Christmas this year…. okay, you may tell me anyway!!  :)

Hello Friends!  I hope you have had a great week so far!  Let’s see, Miss Baby and I have done the usuals this week.  We also squeezed in our schedule to see a Reptile Show at our local library, where I learned more about certain crawly creepies than I wanted to know.  Miss Baby was brave enough to pet this large albino snake (gross!).

I am really thrilled about another Australian feature in the midst of all the craziness.  Since I am currently working on things I can’t show you just yet, I am happy to show you something I had worked on months ago. Meet Stars Aligned, my new design featured in the No.68 Australian Quilters Companion issue! You will be able to purchase the magazine on newsstands if you aren’t a subscriber and live in Australia.  If not, you are able to easily purchase the digital version here.

See my name and quilt on the table of contents page?!  I am very excited.  You will also see my friend Lynette Anderson has a project featured in the same issue too!  Yay to Lynette. :)

I do like the layers of stars in Stars Aligned.  Are you able to spot the starry layers?

Design 1h_67.5 x 79.5

Stars Aligned is made with fabrics from Lynette Anderson‘s Starry Night and Bread & Butter, released by RJR Fabrics.  Fabrics are now in stores.

6a00d83455610269e201a73dce33fa970d-400wi

Since the actual sample, made by Jill – a wonderful sample maker, is in Australia, Lynette graciously sent me these pictures from the Down Under.

If you wish to purchase the quilt kits, Lynette has them for sale here.

6a00d83455610269e201a73dea4965970d-300wi

Lynette also has the kits for Santa’s Sleigh (download pattern instructions here) for pre-order here, our joint design using the same Starry Night fabrics.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read about snake and stars.   I am not nearly as excited about my slightly increased knowledge of snakes as I am about my continuing starry quilting journey!

God bless you all!

Hello Friends, this is a super quick post as it’s Tuesday when I work at my other “day” job (Mom/chauffeur for extra-curricular activities).  Look what came in the mail – the fabrics for my Plain & Fancy BOM quilt!  Some shops are doing it as a BOM program, while some are selling the complete kits.  I got the kit, but will be showing you my progress on a month-by-month basis.

IMG_5450

The quilt sample that was shown at Quilt Market last Fall is now being shown at Quilt Events in Europe.  I wish there was a way I could tag along…

thread-talk1

Happy Monday, Friends!  I hope your week got off a great start.  I look forward to visiting your blogs to see what you have going on this week.  I was able to finish off a quilt to send off before the weekend… here is a sneak peek of Visions of Azure:

IMG_5315

Oftentimes, my planned quilting scheme doesn’t work out when the actual quilting starts… and such was the case with Visions of Azure.  I had planned to quilt formal feathers.  But in the end, I decided that I needed an airy feel for the spinner blocks, and the feathers would end up making the overall look too stuffy.   The new quilting scheme turned out to be a fun way to quilt spinner blocks,  and I share with you the schematic in the following.

Starting from the spinner center, I quilt a curve to about the mid-way of the long side of a parallelogram, and then round off with a tip at the top of the parallelogram, before curving back down to about the mid-way of the long side of the parallelogram – at the other side, before curving back down to the spinner center.  I then echo once.

IMG_5317

Then, it’s a matter of filling in with fillers like tendrils, swirls etc.

IMG_5318

See what I mean about the airy feel when quilting my spinner blocks this way?

I look forward to be able to show you the quilt in its entirety.  Stay tuned for details.  Hugs to you all, and have a very lovely week.

Happy Monday, Friends!  I hope you are well.  I had shown you my Persian Rug runner (click here to view more pictures) that is featured in Annie’s Fat Quarter Shuffle book.

IMG_3907

I actually have another quilt featured in the same book.  Come meet Starry Dance!

2199837463_04A_Starry[image source: Annie's]

Starry Dance features sawtooth star blocks, constructed using exactly 6 fat quarters, with the help of a blending fabric (in this case, gray!).  The fabrics are all Riley Blake fabrics.

IMG_4048

From the quilt layout schematic, you will notice the palette I used for the quilt is a versatile one – the fabrics are easily substituted with fabrics of your choice.

Starry Dance

Here are a couple more shots of the quilt:

IMG_4062

IMG_4072

IMG_4074

And here is a block done with my favorite fabrics from the fat quarter stash:

IMG_4071

Due to the open layout of the quilt design, I decided to experiment with straight line quilting, with the lines criss-crossing randomly.  While a traditionalist at heart, I am nonetheless happy to dabble a little in the “modern” quilting style.  So, Starry Dance seems the perfect quilt for me to do a little experimenting with the basics before I attempt to add my own flavor to the modern quilting motif later on.IMG_4075

I do enjoy the uneven texture of the randomly criss-crossing straight lines.  The uneven texture reminds me of the fun spontaneity that peppers my stuffy, clock-work organized life from time to time.

IMG_4063

IMG_4064

Quilting was done using Aurifil‘s Mako 50 Cotton thread, over Hobbs Tuscany silk batting!  If you are new at my blog, check out what I have written about the thread and batting here, and here.

IMG_4050

I was told there are 37 shopping days till Christmas.  How are you holiday plans shaping up?  Are you doing anything this week that is Thanksgiving/Christmas related?

I hope you enjoyed my Starry Dance.  As always, I appreciate your visit.  Have a lovely week ahead, dear Friends!  Blessings to you all!

Hello Friends, I am happy to share with you my “blueberry pie filling” quilting motif.  Don’t the quilted pebbles look like blueberries nestling oh-so-snug in a pie crust?  This motif illustrates another application of “pebbles”.

I quilted “blueberry pie filling” on a recently completed quilt, Repetitions.  It should already be at the editor’s by the time this post goes live.  Here are a couple more sneaky peeks for you.   Can you see the very light gray threads I used for quilting the quilt?

The quilt uses fabrics from an upcoming Lynette Anderson‘s fabric line Quilters Garden.  It is Lynette’s debut line with RJR Fabrics.  I have MUCH more to share about Quilters Garden.

Hello Friends,  I have emerged — sort of — from my pile of very immediate deadlines.  I was able to spend some really fun time with my little family over the weekend, and I didn’t feel guilty hitting that snooze button!  For just a little bit there, I felt weird not feeling guilty about sleeping more than 5 hours a night!

IMG_3707

My crunch isn’t quite over, but I am tickled that it is down to a manageable level!  So I will still be working a lot this week… to start off the week, I am happy to share with you another free-to-use pattern I designed for Quilting Treasures using their newly released Moonflower fabric collection.

This is a queen-sized quilt – can you see it draped on your bed?

thread-talk1From my experience, feathers are probably one of the least forgiving quilting motif.  Sometimes I look at the feathers I quilt, and I can instantly tell whether they are on or off.  I have discussed the anatomy of an “on” feather here.  And I think the key is really that curvature that we round off in forming those feather lobes.

feather3

IMG_4264

So, the question becomes how does one practice this almost mystical rounded curvature?  I personally don’t really like to practice for just practice.  I like to actually still achieve something when I am practicing.  I had a light bulb moment when I was quilting these “pseudo” informal feathers on my Woodland Snapshots quilt a few weeks ago.

IMG_3433

These pseudo feathers are much more forgiving and much easier to quilt, and I think they provide the perfect opportunity to practice that rounded curvature in the midst of the quilting process.  I hope the following schematic helps.  The basic idea is to form a feather lobe (solid line), but after the rounded curvature is formed, I would echo along the previously stitched lobe (dotted line) to return to the spine before forming the next lobe.

IMG_3529

The goal is to form the lobes with a curvature as gracefully round as possible.  I have shown in the following some lobes that are kind of “off”.  Hopefully you will be able to compare the shapes of your feather lobes when they are “off” and see what I mean about the rounded curvature… and more excitingly you are on your way to quilting more “on” feathers than “off”.

IMG_3532

Here you see more of the pseudo feathers in action.  You will notice that not all are perfect, but as a whole, these feathers are forgiving.  I gained some insights as to how to better round off that curvature when I free-hand quilt my future feathers.

IMG_3427

Also, I have meant to mention to you that my online “Learn to Machine Quilt” class has been made into a DVD.  For those who find it a little tedious to have to follow the class via the internet on a computer and prefer to pop the class into a DVD player – it is available for you now!

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well!  Things are happening at a rather crazy pace at my end.  So, I might be offline for a few days.  But I do want to let you know I am alive and 85% well.

I also want to let you know my quilt made cover of American Patchwork & Quilting 2014 calendar!

307_1_[image source: American Patchwork & Quilting]

Needless to say, I am beyond excited!  The quilt is back with me now.  I just need a few free hours to take the quilt outside for a quick photo shoot.

Meanwhile, click here to view the other projects featured in the calendar, or if you want to purchase the calendar.  The calendar comes with instructions for ALL the projects.

Thanks for stopping by.  Please be assured of my appreciation of your sweet friendships.  Many hugs to you till we “meet” again.

Hello Friends!  I hope you are doing well.  I finished my Boxing Day quilt, and it is all ready to leave for its photo shoot.  Here are a couple of final peeks before the quilt becomes “official”:
IMG_5279

You can see I quilted super-sized Jester’s Hat motif on the quilt.  The trick for quilting large-sized motifs using a domestic machine is to first master the stitching path of the motif in smaller scale.  That way when you quilt super-sized, you don’t have to worry as much about where to go next, and can focus better on keeping the curves smooth.

IMG_5281

The Jester’s Hat motif is covered in my online “Learn to Machine Quilt” class.  Click here to find out more.  Quite a few of you had written you signed up for the class this last week (AWESOME, and THANK YOU!).  The class is still offered at 50% (Use keycode EYGHOFF – valid at the time of posting) if you have never taken an online class with Annie’s.  You only have to pay $17.50 for the class that you can keep forever!

I am sharing with you in the following how the Jester’s Hat motif has left its mark in some of my quilts…
