I'm In! Georgia Celebrates Quilts

This morning I woke up to some exciting news! I'm in!

east cobb quilters guild show entry georgia celebrates quilts

I'm thrilled to have a quilt in a show (other than my own guild's show) for the first time ever!

I guess this means I really do have to finish it now. Good thing the #machinequiltingbloghop starts Monday!

Machine Quilting Blog Hop starts Monday, May 1!

Monday is the start of the Machine Quilting Blog Hop! Join me, HollyAnne, Vicki, and Kristin as we quilt our way through Angela Walters and Christa Watson's book, The Ultimate Guide to Machine Quilting.

For the next ten weeks, we will be blogging about a chapter from the book and practicing the techniques. Vicki has a longarm and will be channeling Angela, while Kristin, HollyAnne and I will be using our domestic machines.

We'd love for you to quilt along with us, even if you don't have a blog. Use the hashtag #machinequiltingblog hop on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook to share what you're working on and what you learned from each chapter.

While there are quilt patterns in the book, I will be using some of my personal UFOs and even some plain quilt sandwiches to practice. I'm sure you have a few scraps of fabric hanging around that you could use to improve or broaden your machine quilting skills.

No quilt police allowed! To paraphrase a wise quilter, this quilt is just practice for the next one.
