A New Quilt, Moda Bakeshop tutorial and Quilt as you Go Class!

Before I move forward with any updates, I wanted to give a sneak peak of my latest quilt! (I still need to bind it!) This is a low volume bundle quilt. If you love it, my next post will have a tutorial on it along with a custom quilt kit from my friend Cristi over at Whimsy Quilts and Fabrics! Like me, Cristi lives in Washington but in the city of  Issaquah. If you haven't yet, check out her shop and use discount code RAIN15 for 15% off, which is good for this whole month of March :) I'm a long time customer of her shop, which used to be an etsy.

Next, my Quilt-as-you-Go pillow tutorial posted on Moda Bakeshop this morning! Check it out for a taste of my modern Quilt-as-you-Go technique to be featured in my upcoming book. Enjoy! Oh, and thanks to moda Bakeshop, HERE's a printable version of it.

Next, if you're in Washington I have another Quilt-As-You Go class at the Quilting Loft in Ballard, Seattle. The class is on Tuesday, May 6th from 6-9pm. Register here. I hope to see you there and I'd love to spend the evening sewing with you :) !! I'll be teaching how to make the following quilt, but you'll also learn the technique so you can take your quilt in a whole other direction if you wish - it's a very creative technique and class!

Finally, here are a few more pictures from last night of my latest quilt. I was up until 1 AM happily quilting it! :) I was in 'the zone.' This was my first quilt doing free-motion quilting without using my quilting frame (which i sold after having Ethan). I had a sudden streak of confidence to do this. I'm sure it's from all the free-motion quilting practice I had from my latest Quilt-as-you-Go quilts.

I stuck with simple loopy-loops...


Absolutely LOVE how it turned out!


Thanks for stopping by my blog to see my latest! Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend :)
