As I said yesterday, machine quilting with a walking foot was an elusive skill. It frightened me, free motion quilting was way to scary to even contemplate!
My machine quilting was kicked started by my lovely mini monster requesting a patchwork quilt of his own. It has started a new obsession with all things machine quilting - it is really addictive once you get past the fear factor!
Yesterday I came across this amazing blog by Leah Day:
Each design comes complete with a video to show you how to get started and tips on how to complete the design.
For me this is made all the more perfect because she has divided all of the blocks into difficulty. The beginners page has an amazing array of patterns. After watching a few videos I feel confident to give the designs a go.... I even even sorted out some cotton to get my own blocks ready for practising!
Every Thursday Leah has a question blog, so you can email her your question about quilting and she will answer them on the blog - perfect!
So the next stage of machine quilting starts next week!
