Machine Quilting

Many of the bloggers that do their machine quilting on their home sewing machine have shared with me that they've learned a lot from Patsy Thompson's videos. I've watched Patsy's intro's on her website, but never got around to ordering one of her DVD's.

Well my sister in love found Patsy Thompson's Fast and Free 0.5 at JoAnn's last week. I was thrilled to know that I could locate this DVD close to home. So I went to JoAnn's on Friday but was disappointed to not find it. This was a smaller JoAnn's, so I figured maybe they did not carry everything that the larger stores carry. Yesterday I went to another JoAnn's, and they did not have it either. bummer........

So finally after a round-d-round trip, I made my way to the JoAnnETC store. And YES, they had it! I was also happy to be able to use my 40% off coupon.

So now it's practice, practice, practice :-)

Don't you just love when you find something and a 40% coupon too...woo hoo. I love to machine quilt, but I hate when you have to squeeze the quilt in between the needle and the inside of the arm. That's why I stick to throw and baby quilts. Good luck with the DVD!

Patsy Thompson does some amazing quilting, doesn't she? FMQ is really something that I want to be able to do, but I haven't been brave enough to try it. Please share your practice pieces...I'm anxious to see how it goes for you!

I have been to her web site too and would love to have one of her dvd's. I didn't know Joanns carried them. I will have to look. Maybe they can order me one if they don't have it in.I really want to learn to do that. Thanks.

I always say before you start quilting, have a glass of wine on your sewing table and keep sipping til it is all gone and your free motion will be wonderful. Have fun.
