Love at first sight. You’ve seen it in the movies, but has it happened to you in real life? You’re strolling through the rows of your local quilt shop, when all of a sudden, a fantastic new precut catches your eye. The colors. The prints. It’s almost too wonderful to be true. My Steps & Stones tutorial features a great new fat quarter bundle, “Gleaned” by Carolyn Frielander for Robert Kaufman. Truth be told, I fell in love with this fabric long before this quilt began to take shape. Click HERE to see how I transformed those little pieces into a cool, modern quilt!

Trapunto Quilting a Fabric Panel

They say practice makes perfect, but that doesn’t mean practice has to be boring! This week I’ve got an action-packed project that will help you dive into free motion quilting and love every minute! It’s a panel that is made 3-dimensional with high-loft trapunto quilting. You’ll have a blast as you “doodle” decorative stitches onto your quilt, and in the process, your FMQ skills will get a fantastic workout.
