Start Quilting NOW!

Are you still on the fence about free motion quilting? Have you been waiting for divine intervention to take over and suddenly make sense of the mystery? Do you only dream of pretty stitches and finished quilts?

Wake up! It's time to stop waiting and start quilting!

If I've said it once, I've said it a million times: The best way to learn is to stitch 1 design. I've put together a great beginner tutorial over at Sew Bittersweet Designs stitching a giant, super simple version of stippling over this little quilt:

  3. Thanks for this post. It was very helpful to me. I am a VERY reluctant quilter. Now my question is,how do you get those pins out without making your hands become too uncomfortable? =!=

  4. I've quilted every quilt I've ever finished. Unfortunately those have all been in the ditch. Time to move on and try this. Thanks Leah.
