Vintage Linens

Vintage Lines, TurtlesGood Morning, Quilters!

For the past several months, I have been working with the Craftsy editors to create a quilting class to complement my other two classes:  Divide and Conquer Machine Quilting and Creative Machine Quilting. (Get 50% off either class HERE)

Now that you know a wide variety of motifs, the question becomes how to design the machine quilting on the quilt tops YOU have.

We will discuss a wide variety of quilt types–including quilting on embroidered blocks.  I know many of you create gorgeous embroidery-both hand and machine designs.  We will give you some really fun ideas for quilting embroidered blocks.

I have been saving these adorable vintage tea towels for just the right project and I can’t wait for you to see the finished quilt!

What about YOU?

Do YOU do machine or hand embroidery?

Do YOU ever add your embroidery to quilt blocks?

Do YOU collect anything vintage?

We’d LOVE to hear!

More Sewing with Nancy!

Good Morning, Quilters!

Last December, as I was browsing lazily through my emails,  I noticed a note from the editor at Martingale.  I leapt out of my chair when I read that Nancy Zieman had expressed interest in Free Motion Machine Quilting, 1-2-3 and if I was available she was extending an invitation to film two episodes in February 2017!

Was I available?????

Are you kidding me????

I would have hired a dog sled to get from Minnesota to Wisconsin in February if necessary!

I have watched Sewing with Nancy forever!  She is a celebrity in my house–all of my kids knew exactly who I was talking about when I sent a group text announcing the news!

Fortunately, while it was bitter cold as we drove to Wisconsin (my daughter, Faye came along)–there was no need for canine escorts.

In addition to working and filming, Nancy and her husband graciously invited us to dinner. It was a lovely evening.  They told us stories about their early years including some very funny stories of the mistakes they made.  The key (in their words) they just went to work every day and they stuck together.

Nancy’s story is one of hard work and perseverance.

Thank you, Nancy!  YOU have been an inspiration to so many of us–as an seamstress, as an artist, as a businesswoman and as a lady!

What about YOU?  Has Nancy inspired you?

We’d LOVE to hear!
