Learn about Quilting Design

Are you curious about quilting design? Do you wish you could design your own quilt from start to finish? Are you confused about how to use different quilting designs?

Great! I've created a new video just for you! Today I shared a live chat on Facebook all about quilting design and I've set it here for you to watch:

Click Here if the video does not appear to watch on Facebook.

Of course this had to freeze frame me in the weirdest pose! LOL!

Now this chat is sponsored by my website and until October 3rd you can save $5 on the book 365 Free Motion Quilting Designs. Click Here to check it out!

The talk is a bit long, but you can always hit play and listen while you sew or quilt.

Just a bit of back story - quilting design can refer to designing the piecing / applique shapes for the construction of the quilt top. It can also refer to designing the machine quilting design that holds the quilt together.

I bounced around a lot in the talk, but overall it's tons of info about quilting design and construction ideas. It also gave me a lot of ideas for future videos so you guys are great inspiration!

Josh and I are wanting to make this a regular feature, but this time really didn't work for our family. I'm thinking Wednesday at 2 pm EST. We produce the videos after the live event so you can watch them anytime!

I also think it's important to have a theme / topic to talk about so you know what will be discussed. Do you have a topic you'd like to learn more about? Please share in the comments below!

Let's go quilt,

  1. Look forward to this!!! Now to set my alarm on my phone! Or I'll forget!

  2. There's a big blank space in this post, but I think I found the video by going straight to Facebook...58 minutes.

    1. Hmm...the video is showing up on my screen. What internet browser are you using? I'll add a direct link just in case it's glitchy.
