New Quilting Workshop in Progress!

Last month I shared the free Mega Pinwheel Star quilt pattern using the beautiful Monaluna fabrics included in April's Quilty Box. Rather than fold it up to quilt another day, Dad and Josh challenged me to plan a very simple, quick quilting design and film it for a new quilting workshop.

So that is exactly what I'm working on today! I decided to dive into walking foot quilting and pick three very simple designs to quilt the Mega Pinwheel Star quilt quickly and easily.

I'm delighted with how the videos are turning out so far! It's really exciting to go from a basic idea to halfway through quilting the quilt in just a few days.

The fact is, not all quilts need to be quilted with a complicated, time consuming design. For this quilt, I just wanted it to finish soft and cozy so James and I can enjoy cuddling up with it on the couch. I even backed it with minky so it's super plush!

I'll keep you posted on the progress of this new quilting workshop, which should be available sometime in June.

Let's go quilt,

    1. Not always! lol! I'm sharing my mistakes in this workshop too because sometimes my needle doesn't go how I want it to. I hope that helps!
