Inspiration for the New Year

Happy New Year everyone! Have you found any new crafting inspiration this new year? All of my new year quilting so far is using the modern quilt-as-you-go method.  I saw a table runner tutorial using this technique and instantly got inspired to do an entire quilt using the same method.  I’m absolutely LOVING the result. If only I had more time to move forward with this overflow of ideas! It’s the best thing when you find inspiration in something.

Here’s my cramped little sewing nook that’s been getting a lot of love lately. The Ikea table that my machine is set up on isn’t sturdy enough to hold my 30 lb Pfaff Grand Quilter, so I’ve been using my 10 lb Janome instead. Both are awesome machines, but  I might need to bust out the ‘ol Pfaff again because of its’  automatic thread cutter which would make this modern  quilt-as-you-go technique loads more convenient.

If you’re in the Seattle/Washington area, I’m teaching a class on this Modern Quilt-as-you-go technique. You can find details by clicking HERE. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve also added a little link on the right nav with a link to all of my classes at the studio.

In addition, I am teaching this modern log cabin quilt (below) in March. ๐Ÿ™‚ And yup! It uses the quilt-as-you-go method! Details for the class can be found HERE.

I hope you’re all finding some crafting inspiration this new year ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy sewing!

    I'm with Di. Will you share the tutorial for the quilt as you go table runner? I would love to come to your class, but I'm in CA. Thanks for sharing your pics of these quilts. They are gorgeous.

    I've really enjoyed reading what you are doing. I wished I lived in Seattle rather than Virginia!
