It's time to get out your Teach Me to Machine Quilt book and a panel so you take my Challenge to learn to machine quilt! I could call this a sew along, but really I am issuing a challenge to you. A challenge to try, to do it, to accomplish this because I KNOW you can.. you are a rock star that can do anything you set your mind to!
Ready? ... let's get started...
I want you to read page 47 of my book. I hope you have read the intro and other parts too, but right now .. page 47.
We are going to take the first steps to getting you 'in the groove' of quilting your own quilts.
With my book you have access to a LOT of BONUS videos JUST for book owners. There is a code in your book to get to them. Remember that is JUST for those who bought my book.
I checked and since the 'Hello Friends' is about 2 yrs old.. i can't find it online anywhere.. but you can find loads of OTHER cute panels.. links below!
First you will need a panel. You can either put a border around one or just leave it as it is. Since you have read my book you know that panels are MAGICAL! You didn't put any work into this, you can practice around shapes and you have an adorable finished project.
These are panels I've had for year.. sorry!! I pick up cute ones when I see them. The pumpkin is from Deb Strain, the 12 Days of Christmas is Kate Spain, and Kathy Schmitz (or maybe Bonnie Sullivan) did the snowmen.
I DID find the OWL in a light background HERE
Some of you want to practice freemotion, some of you need to start with walking foot quilting so you can build up that skill.
This is the panel from the book and I did freemotion, BUT you can do walking foot with panels, no problem!
Because the Panel is not too big you can do the walking foot quilting around shapes by rotating the quilt to follow the images.
Are you ready?
