Beautiful Class Quilts are Back

Friday was a super busy day getting my Galadriel costume finished in time for Halloween, but I found some time to share my beautiful quilts that have finally arrived back from Craftsy!

I designed all three of these quilts for my latest Craftsy class the Free Motion Effect. Click Here to sign up for this class and get 50% off!

As you can probably tell, this class was a lot of work to prepare! I really couldn't have created the quilts without my dad's help preparing the fabric and piecing most of the quilt tops this spring.

Quilting Design Lessons

One of the major lessons I included in this class was how to plan your quilting design based on how much time you have for the project. You'll notice in the video that I really focus on how much time each one took to prepare. This was essential because I had to finish all of these, plus prepare more for demo in class within 2 months!

It's wonderful to have the quilts back so I can hang them up in the Crafty Cottage or around the house. I do plan to sew the tumbler panels together to create one large tumbler quilt for snuggling on the couch with James.

Now that I'm finally finished with my costume, I'm really in the mood to machine quilt! Seeing all these quilts is really inspiring me to jump back on the machine and stitch up something beautiful this evening. Be looking for a new awesome machine quilting video tomorrow!

Let's go quilt,
