I can’t believe that it’s been almost 6 months since our last Free-motion Challenge Quilting Along! But, I’m finally back with a brand new Free-motion Challenge, Echoes & Curves.

Throughout the six video series, we will be learning two contrasting designs and how to use them to show off different parts of your quilts. I will demystify the Serpentine lines design and show you how to use them to fill irregularly shaped areas, create motifs, as a background filler and more!

Then I’ll show you how to use echoing to emphasize different sides of blocks, make bigger areas more manageable, and how to create secondary patterns with the quilting! I am so excited to share designs ideas and show you how to use them on actual quilts!

It all starts on April 10th and the best part is that it’s free to participate. The videos will be on my YouTube channel and on my website.

Get the Exclusive Products:

While you definitely don’t have to have them to participate in the Free-motion Challenge, I have put together some exclusive products to make the quilting process even more fun!

The Kaleidoscope Panel

I designed the Kaleidoscope panel exclusively for this challenge, making it the perfect way to join along on the Echoes and Curves Free-motion Challenge Quilting Along.  It’s digitally printed in the US and measures approx 42” x 52”.

You can order the panel by itself or add on any of the following options:

Border Panel:

Add borders to your quilt with this border panel option. Pre-printed border strips will give you the look of complex piecing that’s super easy to sew on. Border panel option comes with instructions on how to attach the 4 1/2” border strips which finish at 4” wide.

Backing Option

I’ve designed a custom backing print that looks amazing with the Kaleidoscope panel. The backing kit includes fabric for the backing and the binding, as well as instructions on how to prepare your backing.

Coordinating Thread Collection

Take the guesswork out of picking thread colors! In this coordinating thread collection, I have put together 5 spools of Glide thread that are the perfect colors for quilting the Kalediscope quilt.  The collection includes: Bone, Sterling, Pale Mist, Tabiz Orchid and Persian.

About Glide Thread: Glide is a 40wt thread that adds just a bit of sheen to your quilting. It’s strong enough for machine quilting, yet still thin enough to not overwhelm your quilt.

Of course you can also find your favorite machine quilting supplies on our website as well!
