Craftsy Class Update!

Time to share more fun details about my new Craftsy class The Free Motion Effect! This is a class all about deciding which designs to use on your quilts and how to apply them to the quilt surface. It's a class geared to quilting on a home sewing machine with lots of tips for managing bulk and most importantly - designing your quilt so it's easy to finish quickly.

One of my favorite parts of planning this class was choosing the bright fabrics used in the three featured quilts. I used Island Batik Basics fabrics in the bright colors of waterfall and purple to create the tumbler quilt:

And the entire rainbow of Cherry, Nasturtium, Butter, Leprechaun, Waterfall, Purple, Grass, and Cream were used in the colorful Vase of Feathers wall hanging:

Yes, the quilting is the main focus of this project, but beautiful fabrics like these make all the difference in the world! Click Here to find the many Island Batik fabrics used in this class.

  1. Wow, these photos are inspiring...looking forward to the Craftsy kickoff!

  2. Do not feel bad ... I missed a distant relative's wedding reception ... showed up on the wrong weekend ... then could not get off work for the correct weekend.... BRAIN EXPLOSION ... I will never hear the end of it from my hubby.

    Looking forward to seeing the new class... and thank you for the discount
