  • How to Applique in Reverse

    In my travels to quilt shows, exhibits, and "Quilting Arts TV" tapings, as well as virtual traveling via social media, I'm seeing a big return to some of the traditional sewing crafts like smocking, tucking, and hand appliqué . I don't know whether it's the ‘70s fashion...

  • My First Quilt, Last Quilt - A Beginning Quilting Story

    I finished a baby quilt last night for a coworker who will go on maternity leave soon. It was a delightfully simple block arrangement of scrappy four patches and one patches in charming fabrics from Moda. I truly loved sewing it and my mind meandered happily as I worked. I thought of the enumerable baby...

  • Jazz Up Small Quilting Projects with Couching

    During the time when I was regularly creating prayer flags, I made a series with tiny paper tags attached. On the tag I glued words cut from old books--little phrases that fit the intention of the flag. Here I used a basic couching stitch on the tag, undulating the string to add interest. The little...

  • Embroidering fabric

    Hello, My first post! I've stamped some fabric (fat quarter) and want to embroider on it now to make it more complex as it evolves into a finished piece. I'm not sure where it's going but should I back it with flannel or other thin backing before I start the hand work or should I do handwor...

  • A Good Bood

    When reading a book, a person actually sees the words in their mind and feels the emotions these words evoke. This is me reading "A Good Book" running through a myriad of emotions as the story progresses from "Once upon a time" to "and they lived happily ever after."

  • Along Our River

    This 18"x23" quilt was made for our quilt guild challenge, Along the River. The river needed to enter on the left side and exit on the right side of the quilt so I chose the Hudson River as it meanders through our area of the lower Adirondacks. I enlarged a map of the river and used it to arrange...

    "Angels of Darkness, Angels of Light" - Ó 2005, ( 30”W x 28.5”T), is based on a vision that I had where I was visited by angels of two kinds, those of dark and those of light. For me, the experience was very profound, as it impressed upon me that there are lessons to be learned...

  • Re: UK members..is there a source book for City and Guilds course in embroidery??

    Hi Lorraine, I don't think that there is a C&G coursebook available as normally the coursework is down to the Lecturers! What I'd recommend you do is have a look at the Embroiderers' Guild here in the UK. Find yourself a local Branch to join and have fun learning without the expense of...

  • Re: free motion frustration!

    Hi Zoldesign, you need to place your fabric in a hoop and make sure it is very taught. This will avoid the fabric coming up and down with the needle. I assume you are using a single thickness of fabric? The only time you need not place fabric in a hoop to free motion, is when you are stiching through...
