modern machine quilting workshop DVD

Happy Sunday to you all!

Today I'd like to talk about my friend Catherine Redford's newest Quilting Arts workshop DVD on free motion quilting.

 I've been a fan of Catherine's amazing work for years now and I really enjoyed her first DVD on straight line quilting. So, of course I was super excited to watch this new DVD as I hoped to learn some helpful tips and tricks on how to get better at free motion quilting.

I'm happy to say I was not disappointed. I loved seeing all the sketches Catherine shared before demonstrating different free motion quilting patterns (from continuous eights, to pebbles, snail trails, and "flames" all the way to modern feathers and ferns) on her sewing machine. I should definitely sketch out my ideas on paper more often before I jump to actual quilting. As Catherine says: "It's way faster to put stitches in your quilting than take them out".


Thanks to Catherine I finally learned what the difference between stipple and meander is :). I just adore how she combines different quilting patterns together. This waves + writing placemat was my favorite. I think a whole cloth quilt covered in favorite quotes would look absolutely stunning, don't you?

I hope you'll check out this DVD, you won't be disappointed. You can purchase a copy by clicking here.

Also, Catherine is giving away two copies of this fantastic DVD as well as a grand prize of Stella task lamp + DVD. Just hop on over to her blog and leave a comment.
