  • Free motion quilting classes in Midwest

    I'm looking for a hands-on free motion quilting class in the Midwest. I'd like to learn and have had little success trying on my own. Any recommendations for quilt shops that hold classes? I could just start calling, but would save time if I could narrow it down some. Thanks

  • Re: Looking for ideas for an all over design for a baby quilt

    I love to do the swirls with loops and hearts on baby quilts. This design seems to give enough density that it will hold up for decades and looks adorable and suitable for baby!

  • Re: Finishing your quilt when using appliques

    Wendy, I don't think there are any rules in quilting. It all comes down to personal preference. Personally, I quilt around my applique motifs' because I want them to stand out. And the hole in the back...it actually looks really neat because you can see the shape of the motif from the front!...

  • Free Motion Quilting

    I was looking at some of the beautiful quilts in the gallery, and I was wondering how to get the machine stitching so there is that little space between the stitches. Mine all seem to run together. Cassie
