Saturday Happenings & Giveaway News
Some machine quilting has been going on lately on a variety of pillows. Above is a little peek of the pillow that I will be teaching in my 2nd Pillow Talk class. I will be talking about straight line machine quilting in addition to piecing half square triangles. Don’t you just love trying out new techniques on pillows that you might not normally try?—Straight line quilting is pretty straightfoward (hee hee) but I’ve also been trying out other quilting as well.
I did some more fun pebble quilting for a pillow I made for an upcoming online magazine that we all love. =) I adore the texture that pebble quilting gives a project–I don’t find it to be the easiest but I am getting better at it. I am definitely not ready to try it on a quilt yet—does it take everyone else forever and a day to pebble quilt?–and do you go through an amazing boatload of thread?–I really need a bobbin assembly when I pebble quilt!
What is your favorite way to machine quilt? Are you straight line kinda folks or do you FMQ? I supppose for me it depends on the project. =)
Oh, and by the way…do you remember this peek?
Well, here’s another little peek.
This is the back of a quilt that you will get to see in full on Monday—along with the tutorial of course! =) The tutorial includes instructions for the pieced backing–one of my least favorite things when making a quilt is figuring the backing…so, I’ve taken the guesswork out of it for you. =) So be sure to pop by…there might be a Ruby scrap giveaway.
I’m just sayin’. =p
