Blocks 9 & 10

Well, this has been a crazy week and I was editing this video at 8:00pm yesterday, trying to get it ready to post today!!

These next two blocks were fun to do but I had lots of issues with empty bobbins, incorrect stitching and general production issues. Don’t you know that it would be that way when I was in a hurry!!!

The first block that we worked on was designed with straight lines….

This may look like a hard design, but with a few guidlines drawn, it is super easy.

The second block for the week features a loopy meander and a spinning ruler…..

I LOVE those polka-dots in the quilting!!!

So, have a look at the video and then grab your drawing board, your ipad or your sewing machine and try some practicing!!!

We only have two blocks left to go and then will spend a week talking about the sashing and borders…..

More fun to come!!!

Are you in a rut with your machine quilting? Sure, you know HOW to do FMQ and you have 4 or 5 patterns that you do well. BUT, you are bored with those designs and need a push to try some new things. If so, please join “MOVE-IT…. a Free-Motion Quilting Boot Camp”!! I will take you on a FREE 10-week journey to learn new designs and become more comfortable with just MOVING IT!!

Blocks 7 and 8…..

Blocks 7 and 8 are “in the bag” so to speak!! Only four more to go in our TWELVE WAYS TO QUILT A SAWTOOTH STAR challenge!!

The first one had lots and lots of straight lines…..

…including a Square Spiral design in the center.

Block 8 was all about the curve….working with a Fleur-de-lis type of design…..

Have a look at the video and then give these fun designs a try….either by quilting or by drawing it out!!!

I have already started thinking about Blocks 9 and 10!!

One of them is going to be a mixture of straight and curvy lines and may end up being a challenge to quilt…..stay tuned!!

Half way through!!!

This week we are moving quickly….. adding Block #5 and Block #6 to our “Twelve Ways to Quilt a Sawtooth Star”!!

We are playing in the sunshine for Block 5…..

And, Block 6 is all about “wishing”….Wishbone quilting that is!!!

The video is a bit longer because we are doubling the quilting, but I hope you will enjoy it and practice along with me, whether in thread or in lead!!

I keep coming up with new ideas and may have to make ANOTHER quilt just to use them all!!

Come back next Friday for blocks 7 and 8.
