New Block and New Workshop!

It's June 1st and time for a new block for the Machine Quilting Block Party. This month's block is a beautiful Dainty Dresden Plate that we're going to quilt with feathers, a simple leaf design, and awesome ruler foot quilting.

But that's not all!

We also have a new quilting workshop for you today. The Mega Star Walking Foot Workshop is a beginner quilting class that will guide you step-by-step through piecing and quilting this giant star quilt.

Wait...walking foot quilting?

Yep, that's right! I've been wanting to experiment with walking foot quilting and how to quilt a larger quilt using just this style of quilting. It not only worked great, I was able to quilt this quilt in less than two weeks.

In this quilting workshop I share tips on picking a fast and easy quilting design that will also transform your quilt top with beautiful texture. Together we will learn how to quilt through hardest part of the quilt and manage the bulk and weight while also maintaining a pretty design.

If you're just getting started with quilting, this workshop will get you started on the right foot piecing and quilting a very easy quilt. If you've been quilting for awhile, you'll learn a lot about spacing lines with minimal marking and designing the quilting based on your materials and time.

My goal creating this workshop was to prove that you CAN quilt your own quilts on your home machine, and you can quilt a quick, but beautiful design using your walking foot.
