Confessions of a bad Godmother: a few months ago I completed a quilt top in Red Sox colors for my 11-year-old Godson, a devout Red Sox fan, but I’ve been procrastinating on the quilting because I have been waiting for that brainstorm for the perfect quilting motifs that will give the quilt a clean, masculine look–one that a budding baseball star would be proud to have in his bedroom!
Fortunately for me, Catherine Redford has come to my rescue with her new DVD for walking foot quilting:
I bought a walking foot last year and I can’t rave enough about it–it has made my quilting so much easier– but there was a lot I didn’t know I could do with walking foot quilting until I watched Catherine’s DVD.
In the DVD she discusses:
Having had Catherine as a guest on Quilting Arts TV as well as being a seasoned demonstrator in Open Studios, I can vouch that Catherine has a natural, easy-going teaching style that takes the fear and stress out of quilting, (including quilting those pesky perfect spirals).
After watching the DVD, I have decided to use plaid quilting for this Red Sox quilt. The quilt wont be done by Christmas but it WILL be done by Opening Day!
Go sneak over to Catherine Redford’s blog as she is going to be giving away a copy of her Modern Machine Quilting.
Hi Pokey. Somehow I just got your blog and not sure how (maybe as a link from something else). Had to read it all the way through and I have only one comment: Go Girl!. That includes learning how to do naps, too.
Having had such fun and surprises in making fabric prints using paint/inks on the soles of flip flops and all sizes tennis/athletic shoes that I found in a recycling bin, I need (yes, need) to pass it on.
Looking forward to your bloggies and all signed up, Bev
Hi Pokey, love your posts, enjoy watching you on Quilting Arts and learning all things quilting. Looking forward to your new adventures in Napa!
