Boxing Day: Final Sneak Peeks

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”:

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.


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!

    Thank You

  6. You know, I used to think that those larger, open, allover quilting patterns would be easiest for beginners, and that the little tiny quilting would be really hard. But you’re right, on a domestic machine at least, it’s MUCH easier to quilt small patterns than large ones that swoop all over the quilt like a drunken driver… At least that’s what it looks like in MY quilts, anyway. Ahem. Your mileage may vary. ;-)
