The Free Motion Quilting Project: New Facebook Group

Tuesday, January 7, 2014

New Facebook Group

Josh is having computer issues today so instead of posting a tip, here's an exciting announcement!

free motion quilting | Leah Day

We have our very first Facebook Group! Basically this is a place where you can post your photos easily and interact with other quilters following along with the Building Blocks Quilt Along.

It's also a good place to ask questions, just in case I've missed something here or on the YouTube videos.

So jump in and join today!

Let's go quilt,



  1. I just started this project and am using a light box, but the patter lines are not showing thru. How do I mark my block? Would it be better to use a lighter fabric?

  2. Ruth - Chances are you just need a brighter light to shine through the fabric and quilting guide. See if you can add a bright battery powered LED light to your light box. If that doesn't work, pick up a pack of tracing paper and place the block right side up, tracing paper right side down, and the quilting design on top and trace on all the lines. This will be harder to line up, however, with the pieced lines on the blocks.

  3. Yeah!!! I think Facebook is a great place for us to learn together. Thank you!!

  4. Leah, is this group closed? I went to find it and says content not available. I had it a few days ago but thought something was wrong with my attempt to join so I cancelled my request and thought I would try again.
    please help me get it. thank you

    1. This group is still very active! When it says "closed" it means that the settings are private so your posts will not be shared on Facebook. Just click the link that says "request to join" or something like that and Josh will approve your membership and you can start to post.
