Hi Friends, I've started to video some of the quilting on the Speedy Churn Dash Quilt. This first video is a quick look at the first few blocks completed. I'll have a video up soon of the actual quilting. See the results so far... (sorry, someday I WILL get a better camera, but for now… Continue reading Free Motion Quilting the Speedy Churn Dash Quilt Episode 1
This top should look familiar, as it is the header of the blog at the moment. I thought this week would be a good week to get this one sandwiched and begin the process of quilting. Initially I was going to bring this to a long-arm quilter and pay to have it quilted. As of… Continue reading Basting a Quilt Today
Hi Friends, Whoot, Whoot!!! I am finished with "Snow In October"!!! It feels so good to be finished with a quilt that took such a long time to complete.

Hi Friends! I can see the end! I'm now on the 2nd border and the remaining free motion quilting on this quilt is going to be super super easy!

So here we… Continue reading Free Motion Quilting “Snow In October” Video 4 – Triangle Border
Hi Friends! I had a moment to go through my videos and get the next in this series up on the website!

The inspiration came from these Oak trees… Continue reading Free Motion Quilting “Snow In October” Video 3 – Oak Leaves!
Hi Everyone! Here's video 2! These are the feathers I quilted in the blue log areas. It's a simple feather, nothing fancy! Enjoy! ~Cathy
Hi Everyone, Are you ready for one of my visually boring videos?? Ha! For those new to the blog I like to record my stitching, especially when I'm free motion quilting. It helps to save it for posterity sake so if I ever need to review what I did I can do that. In this… Continue reading Free Motion Quilting “Snow In October” Video 1 – The Brown Logs
Hi Friends! The project I'm working on right now is the quilting on the 'Snow In October' log cabin quilt. I've been slowly figuring out a plan as to how I'd like to go about the quilting. First I print a copy of the quilt (I used EQ7 to help with that) and then with… Continue reading Quilting ‘Snow In October’
First of all THANK YOU all for your comments! It was so fun to hear what you thought and I very much appreciate the input! Wow, so many of you liked option #3, the Black inner border with the wide Black outer border! I am beginning to second guess myself now! Are you ready to… Continue reading Border Decision!
While our paint dries between applications I've set up my Little Sport to continue working on the quilting of the String Quilt. This machine is a challenge to do Free Motion Quilting, of course any machine is a challenge to do free motion, you know they all have their little quirks, but silly me decided… Continue reading The String Quilt Project – Free Motion Feather Practice!
