Sometimes deciding what designs to use on a quilt can be more difficult that actually quilting them.  That’s why my newest Free-motion Challenge Quilting Along helps answer the question that plagues machine quilters everywhere, “How Do I Quilt It?”

In this FREE video series, I’m going to share my favorite quilting designs for common quilt blocks from Flying Geese to Nine Patch, and more!

Whether you are an experienced machine quilter looking for design inspiration, or a new quilter looking to improve your machine quilting skills, this challenge is for you!

The Challenge starts on Monday with a Live Kickoff

Join me on Oct. 28th at 3PM Central for a live YouTube video chat to kick off the challenge. I’ll share practical tips for picking quilting designs for your quilts.

Quilt Along With Me on a Custom Panel

We can’t have a quilt along without something to quilt, right? Instead of piecing, you can jump right to the quilting with a custom quilt panel I’ve designed exclusively for this challenge.

Featuring the quilt blocks in the challenge, this bright and happy panel measures approx. 45” x 55”, the perfect size for free-motion quilting practice.

You can purchase the panel by itself or as a kit which includes the panel as well as fabric for the backing and the binding.

I have to admit that I love the backing fabric as much as the front, because it’s not just any fabric. It’s designed by me and printed exclusively for this challenge by Paintbrush Studios. (This print is only available as part of the kit.)

I think you might find it’s the perfect print to inspire some beautiful quilting designs.
