Hello everyone! I'm new to quilting and wanted to share my very first project with you. I spend one week with Judy Niemeyer learning how to quilt. Here's my story http://on.fb.me/1R8OV9J Let me know what you think and what a good project would be for my second quilt! Here's more about Quiltster, the program i used to color my quilt http://bit.ly/1mIlFfh the program is still in beta but for those interested, you can sign up for a chance to be chosen as a beta tester and to be notified of launch this spring. It's pretty cool! I'd love to hear your experiences with template paper piecing. Like I said, I've done it only this one time and there were so many rules and techniques I tried to memorize. Let me know if you have any tips to share! Thanks and I'm excitied to be a fellow quilter now!!
Hello, ladies and gents! This is my first 'share post', and I'm a little nervous, but very excited about the dramatic improvement my Millie is over my old system! I humbly submit a couple of quilts I just took off my new Millie. I have only had her since late November, and I am reeling in the new freedom to play with free motion modern designs and to try new things with each project. (I load a larger backing and batting than the main quilt requires, and then practice free motion design ideas on little table mats and smaller projects in the side margin) These are not intricately pieced to give me lots of negative space to practice in, and so far, the stitch quality even changing thread weights and types of bobbins, is just excellent! Pretty easy to look good when the machine is such a dream. A grateful shout out to the wonderful community here, and to you lovely and helpful experts who give so generously to us beginners. Thank you! Beth
