calming curves

I think we can all agree that a quilter’s natural territory is straight lines. We spend hours making sure that our seams are straight as we whizz through piecing at lightening speed. So it’s no wonder that the mere mention of curves fills many of us with horror! Our comfort zone is undeniably a lovely place to be, but this month we have projects that challenge some of our play-it-safe quilting preconceptions and push those boundaries just a little. Let's take a deep breath, dial down the speed to a more sedate pace, and create some soft curves and circles this issue. But what if it all goes wrong? In my experience there’s very little that a seam ripper and a few choice words can’t deal with! Join us online... we…

straight as an arrow

Take each step slow and steady (especially when stepping on your pedal) and your straight line machine quilting will be a stunner! Straight line quilting is a clean, modern style that is incredibly satisfying… when done well. If you dive in with all of the knowledge and tools you need, there’s no chance your next project won’t be fabulous! You supply the tools, I’ll supply the knowledge (…and the knowledge of the tools. I’m doing double duty over here). Start with a good baste Before you start, make sure you begin with a good baste. You may be a pro quilter with perfect speed and accuracy, but your quilt can still bunch up and get puckered if your basting isn’t up to snuff! Take your time, and make sure you don’t skip any…
