Stitching Lazy Eights on Fresh Quilting!

Hello quilty blogland loves! I've been super quiet, right? It's all for good. The good of raising my little folks with lots of outdoor time and home cooked meals and friends and reading. And the good of conjuring up my next book and online classes!

I also got invited to appear on the second season of the suddenly-everywhere show Fresh Quilting. What an honor! Here is my very first segment from the new season, how to quilt Lazy Eights, or Crazy Eights if you prefer. Whatever you call them, I hope you have fun stitching them.


If you want to see when the show is running in your area, go to www.freshquilting.com and look under the TV Listings tab to find what station is playing it! I feel so lucky to be a little part of this big project. The last time I was on a plane the lady sitting next to me happened to be a quilter (her husband sort of moaned that she somehow ended up sitting next to aNOTHER quilter!) and told me she watches the show every week, that's so cool!

Back to blogging soon I hope, as the school year gets going! Both kids are in school full time now! I hope you are looking out onto big beautiful futures too.

Even stranger story, than sitting next to a quilter, my hubby went on a hike in Utah, and I haven't met the other guys wife or mother, but, we are all getting the same updates from my hubby's satellite GPS locator. Imagine my surprise, when I post about their trip, and another quilter says that my hubby and her friends (who they were on a quilting retreat together) son were on the same trip. She figured it out, when we both got the bailing out message. Small world. Nice video you did.

My lazy 8s always look off kilter (so I don't use the design much) I will try the trick you showed and see if I can improve them.
Great video - as always.

Such a coinsidence I am watching your video on the Craftsy Free Video Day and I just got your book First Steps to free-motion quilting from the library last week.I have watched you on Fresh Quilting too. I want to find out where you teach your free motion classes. I live in Estacada and so glad to find someone from Portland.

Had to return to tell you how much fun I had making lazy eights. I used them as a filler around raspberry kiss blocks and they were fun, easy, and perfect for the project. So thank you. I watched one of your classes on Craftsy yesterday, and I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed it. You are a gifted quilter, and a natural in front of the camera. I hope you are doing well and will post more often.

Glad to see you quilting and posting again.
I love lazy eights but I sometimes find hard to sew smooth loops as it always is bulk due to the seams.
