Machine Quilting for Everyone Including the Tools

I love it when a best selling book and a new line of tools can be showcased together for a perfect class!  Angela Walters wrote Free-Motion Quilting and it has been in the top 20 ever since!  She shows how to machine quilt on a domestic machine.  Her techniques and designs are fresh and creative and a favorite of the Modern Quilt movement.

Item #10860  Retail $22.91

Many of her designs can be created with the following templates.  Accents in Design has created a line of quilting tools that are cut from 1/4″ thick acrylic with laser scored lines that increase the design possibilities dramatically.  Finger grips are placed 2 1/2″ apart so they are easy to manipulate but they stay in place when pressure is applied thanks to the resistance strip centered on each tool.  These tools work on any machine – long arms or domestic machines and are available in several shapes and sizes.

A New Talent Crosses Generations

It isn’t often that I am totally enamored by a new designer – but that is the case with Jenny Pedigo of Sew Kind of Wonderful!  Her quilts encompass all of the features showcased in this age of the “Modern Quilt” – large prints, solid colors, undefined blocks, movement, and larger pieces.  But the traditionalist in me is drawn to them because there is some “oomph” to these projects!  They are constructed with a new curved ruler which creates symmetrical curves – which fulfills my need for balance – and is a learning opportunity!  AND, my 24 year old daughter loves them as much as I do.
