Tomorrow is a class at Seldom Seen Quilting Studio — which means a room FULL of other quilters with heads full of ideas, tips, tricks, enthusiasm, and experience. The class is called “the art of free motion quilting” and will be taught by Karen Kelley. Beautiful quilts have been provided by Laura Nichols of Common Threads Quilting, so the students are all sure to be inspired!
I have decided it is impossible to visit with another quilter for more than five minutes without learning something! How much fun is that? Yesterday, for instance, I learned there is a book by Leah Day with 365 different free-motion quilting patterns, you can use a carpenter’s tape measure to make a snap closure for a quilted handbag, and practicing a pattern on the longarm in “silent” (not sewing) mode helps you relax!
