As you know I am a big fan of Lori Kennedy's blog "The Inbox Jaunt". Every Tuesday she posts a machine quilting tutorial and they are fantastic!
Last week, on Wednesday, she had a special guest, Hilary Florence from the UK, post a machine quilting tutorial and hers was fantastic too! Here are my doodles practicing Hilary's ideas in my sketchbook. I can hardly wait to try some of these out on a quilt.
You can find Hilary's blog at:
You should definitely go check it out!
Lori also announced on her blog that she will be a featured columnist in the American Quilter magazine with her machine quilting tutorials. The first one is on newsstands now and it was great. I really like her clear, precise, step by step instructions. Practicing them on paper, then stitching them out on a practice quilt sandwich are great ways to improve our machine quilting - at least that's what I'm hoping!
I watched the latest episode of The Quilt Show today and Ricky Tims had some great tips for quilting some fancy feathers. I had to pull out my sketchbook and practice those too! I really need to do some quilting!
This is too much fun :)
