A quilt along and a GIVEAWAY!

Does the world need another quilt along? I say YES.


Have you noticed that most quilt alongs assemble a quilt top over several weeks and then address the quilting briefly at the end? I have, and I want to do the exact opposite! I want to briefly assemble a top and then walk you through quilting it, with patterns that are interesting to you.



There seem to be lots of quilters who want to practice free motion quilting - but not on a quilt top they've worked hard on. This quilt along gives you a quilt you don't have to worry about ruining - you could even make it out of fabric that you hate if you want. Or, if you don't want to assemble the top, that's fine too. You can just quilt along with scraps.




If you've never free motion quilted before, I'm going to show you how. If you're stuck in a meandering rut, I'm gonna help you break free. If you're already free motioning your little heart out I might at least give you a few new designs to try. I'm no expert, but I've had some success teaching other quilters to free motion quilt and I want to spread the good news far and wide: you can do it! On your home machine! It's not magic. (But it does feel magical!)


So to generate a little interest in this thing and to start some lucky quilter off on the right foot, I've got a little free motion prize package to give away. The lucky winner will receive:

  • Craft size Warm and Natural packaged batting (perfect size for this project!)
  • 50 curved Dritz quilt basting pins
  • Fons and Porter grippy gloves
  • A package of Schmetz size 90/14 quilting needles
  • One spool of YLI machine quilting thread in white

Since the giveaway is an unabashed attempt to publicize the quilt along, you have three ways to enter. You should leave a separate comment for each entry.

1 - leave a comment on this post telling me something you hope we cover in the quilt along.
2 - become a follower of this blog
3 - blog about the giveaway or quilt along and leave the URL to your post below

The giveaway will be open through August 21st. Good luck and stay tuned! If you'd like a button for the quilt along, here it is (for some reason this looks fine on my home screen and sideways everywhere else. I'll do my best to fix it!):

This sounds like fun, but definitely out of the norm for me. I'm a cautious quilter in that I pretty much just do in the ditch quilting. It scares me to have to pull out all those stitches if I mess up.

Nancy said...

Make sure this is a "Free-Motion Quilting for Dummies" course! LOL! This is such a great idea - thanks!

pinsandneedles said...

I could use practice with my free motion quilting and new ideas (I generally use templates). I will be following along! Thanks!

I'm following you!

Dayle Yates Harris said...

I am so looking forward to this.... Can't wait....

Juliana S said...

I tried free motion quilting and really enjoyed it, but am totally looking forward to more ideas. Thanks for doing this.

rosemagnificent said...

What a GREAT idea...thank you so much!

Debbie Lou said...

Thank you so much for the quilt-a-long. I have tried free motion quilting, but have troubles with the bulk and keeping my stitches smooth and even. I'm excited to learn your techniques. Can't wait!

Debbie Lou said...

I am pleased to be a follower of your blog. Thanks for sharing!

rolynwest said...

I'm terrified of FMQ so anything you cover will be a great help to me! Hope I can overcome this fear!!!

BeachQuilter said...

Hi Christina, this is for me! I struggle with FMQ so I'm looking forward to your quilt along and any tips! Thank you!

The Toothfairy Quilter said...

I'd love to know how to use the best chair height, posture, etc so my shoulders don't get all tensed up!

Debby, crowefan0517 said...

What a great idea! I think most quilters have very little trouble piecing tops but many of us have a fear of ruining those tops by quilting them. That leaves a lot of unquilted UFOs:) I'd love to win these supplies so I can quilt along with you.

I am excited about this quilt along, I am definately in a meandering rut!

Barb H said...

Yes, enter me in the giveaway! I'm excited about the quiltalong--you must be reading my mind since I want to expand my FMQ but won't take any chances on a quilt top I've just finished peicing. Can't wait to start on this project!

Gladys said...

Hola!!! Perdón que le escriba en español, pero no sé inglés y he leído su blog gracias al Traductor! No sabe cuánto he esperado esto! Yo soy autodidacta de patchwork, pues en mi ciudad no hay nadie que me enseñe. Justo hoy publiqué mi desesperación pues NO SÉ ACOLCHAR! No logro hacer nada aceptable con el acolchado libre, por lo que únicamente sigo las figuras alrededor o hago acolchados rectos! Así que me anotaré a su quilt-along y veré qué puedo lograr! Ya voy a publicarlo en mi blog! Y también me haré su seguidora! MUCHAS GRACIAS!!! Un abrazo!

Gladys said...

Hola, Christina! Ya me hice su seguidora!

Robynn said...

This is wonderful. I don't have any idea how to do free motion quilting. I am eager to learn. Thank you for doing this.

Gladys said...

Hola, Christina!!! Ya lo publiqué en mi blog, puede verlo en este enlace: http://detodounpococonmismanos.blogspot.com/2010/08/n-364-alguien-escucho-mis-ruegos.html
Esperaré muy ansiosa cada post! GRACIAS!!!
Un gran abrazo!

Linda said...

I'm a new follower. I want to play along. I have done some meandering and a little bit of regular quilting. I want to pick up any tips or suggestions to make my machine quilting better and have more control. I have plenty of tops to play on. Thanks for hosting this. I will be posting about your Quilt Along too!

This is a quilt-along I really 'need' :-)). I haven't done more than just quilting 'in the ditch'.
I esp. would like tips to do the borders, but every other tip is very welcome.

I want to learn more control with my machine quilting.

Linda said...

I have signed up and blogged about your Quilt along. I'm ready, when do we start????

Candace said...

Wow, this is way cool! I would like to learn more about the balance between the speed of the machine and movement of the sandwich specifically in making curved lines...my curves are "jerky" looking.

Lilian Pilar said...

Christina ... I sign your drawing and quilting by machine I've ever done ... always at hand .... and very recently that I began lipiroca23@gmail.com .... ....
... I do not understand any English so I am using a translator ..... a big hug

Debbie J said...

Just started free motion quilting this year using my vintage singer sewing machine. So far only meandering, so would love to break out of that rut, just as you mentioned!

Lilian Pilar said...

Now I post to my blog ....

Natacha said...

I´ve just read about your new quilt along and I came to know more.
This will be my first one.
I know nothing about machine quilting and I felt as you were describing me when making the announcement.
I've got no blogg. May I join you? I´ll be pleased about it.

Sorry about my english, as you see I´m not english speaker.

TJM wanna be quilt artist said...

I am a new follower...and hope you mention something about the underside..I think some people call them the feathers? The loose messy stuff on the bottom sides sometimes...tension.
To win the give away would be a bonus..thanxs

Unknown said...

Count me in, this is going to be fun.

Unknown said...

I am a follower, looking forward to learning some new stuff. Can't wait.

Unknown said...

I now have your button on my blog. It took me a while, with help from Bernie, (thanks Bernie) to get it posted, but, it's there!!!!!! Guess you can tell, not a computer geek, just a Quilting geek.

Mary said...

This quilt along sounds like fun. I would like to know the best way to start and end your threads so they don't make a nest and don't come unraveled. Also, how do you baste the layers together, especially the huge queen size ones?

Mary said...

I just became a follower!

Unknown said...

I am so ready for this! I've been 'TRYING' to free motion quilt for a couple of months and I guess doing a pretty good job considering how new I am to this. And I am doing it on one of my precious pieced quilts that I love. I keep telling myself that I'm only going to use it here at home on my bed and it's not going in a quilt show or anything like that. Really, it doesn't look as bad as I thought it would! But I need this group quilt along to progress I think.

Unknown said...

And I am a follower!

Ceamz/Cayleigh said...

Oh wow! I love this! I have been wanting to practice more but it is like exercising you
need a partner sometimes OR a group : )
thank you and anything you can show us will be
great. I plan to post this on my blog for a few of my follows too. and follow you also. Polly from Aunt Polly's Porch linked me here.

Ceamz/Cayleigh said...

I am in the process of reading everything I can get about FMQ as I want to improve! Thanks for the quilt-along! My two main problems are tension troubles and thread breaking.

Unknown said...

Sounds like a great idea for a quilt along! I'd love to cover how exactly I get my machine set up to do free-motion quilting. I have a very basic and older machine and the book reads like you can use it for quilting, but when I've tried, I end up with a bunch of thread all over the back of the quilt.

Ulrike said...

What a lovely idea. Maybe this will help me to get some practice and to be less nervous of screwing the quilt up at last. Thanks a lot for your work! Would you mind to comment on a good way to change thread or beginning a line in the middle of the quilt. Since I don't like how my beginnings turned out and I am more than willing to fix this.

Ulrike said...

I posted about the quiltalong here http://teufelskruemel.blogspot.com/2010/08/quilt-along-der-anderen-art.html. Maybe some German quilter will be interested to join in as well.

Jeane said...

If Canadians can join, I would like to be part of the quilt-along. I have the basics, can meander, but eager to learn more. I have a table topper ready to try new things on.

I don't have a blog, but I visit here often. Thanks, Jeane

c said...

how do you keep the back from puckering even pinned every few inches. i dont have a blog to blog too

Carl@ said...

Perdón por no escribir en ingles!
Me encantaria aprender a acolchar, y el premio es genial!
Ya lo publico en mi blog y me hago seguidora
Muchas gracias
Y espero tener suerte

Vanessa said...

The hardest thing about free motion quilting for me is getting the tension right on my machine. My first few attempts were promising, since then I just can't get it right and it is either too bunched, or the back looks terrible. I hope your quilt along can give me a few tips! But I will enjoy reading it anyway!

Cathy M said...

I was looking into learning free motion last night on some of my favorite blogs. I even have a problem getting the meandering pattern even and flowing. I'd like to start there.

Hilary Mercer said...

I have such a hard time free motion quilting. Hopefully Ill get a few steps further than I am now!

I am now following your blog.

The Vegetarian Hunter said...

In the quilt along, I hope there is some discussion as to tips on free motion on a regular (non - long arm) machine as mine knots up terribly on the underside.

D'Anne said...

This is a great quilt a long. I want to know first how to get the tension right to free motion quilt. I haven't actually free motioned anything but have practiced and can't even get the tension right. Are there any tricks?

Mari said...

Hi Christina! What a great idea! I really need a free motion tutorial!!! Thank you so much. Your button is on my blog and I'm a follower too. Regards!!

Oh I am so excited about his quilt along. I feel like I can do this. I heard about this through Allies blog.

Vesuviusmama said...

You seem to be the answer to my prayers! I just started machine quilting this week (no joke) and could use some guidance. Like what do I do with all those loose threads? I assume I thread them into the quilt sandwich but I'm not looking forward to it. Is there another answer?

Wow! there are a lot of comments on this post! just heard you speak at the Portland Modern Quilt Guild and loved your talk! it would be fun to win your giveaway and even more fun to follow your blog! thanks for this and for the teaching you did tonight!

I am working on a quilt right now and have been thinking I am going to have to send it to someone else to quilt it because I have no clue! I hope that keeping the quilt from getting bunchy is something that you address. I had signed up to do a class at our local quilt shop but not enough people signed up....so I didn't get to.

I'm interested in seeing a variety of stitches on a real quilt.

martameiga said...

What I want to get covered in the quilt along... the very basics... how to start and hide de thread for example when machine quilting (I know, this is really basic, but I always find it difficult)... also I love the pattern that resembles little stones (pebbles I think you call them in english... I want to learn that one!)
