Quilting is a journey, presenting many opportunities to explore creativity. This present path has me exploring thread – of all fiber and weight -and the delightful work that comes from letting go and seeing what comes next. The endless possibilities are exciting.
Teaching machine quilting is one of my very favorite experiences. As the students begin to get the process and understand how all of the components come together the excitement builds. I work toward an understanding of how each component from tension & needles to batting and fabric choices all effect machine quiting and how minor adjustment will allow the machine quilting process to flow more smoothly. ”You can do this!” is often spoken in class with the gentle reminder that the process will take a little time and that’s fine.
Writing and designing patters is an exciting part of my Quilt Life that I’m honored to take part in. These opportunities to share and teach and grow as a quilter.
