In honor of yesterday's National Quilting Day, my blog has officially launched! Sit down, thread your machine, and get ready for the ride.
This is an easy beginner's quilt called Fence Post, inspired by The Art of Classic Quiltmaking by Harriet Hargrave and Sharyn Craig. I used a walking foot and orange cotton thread to quilt cross-hatching lines from edge-to-edge. Quilting tips: Low-adhesive blue painter's tape is helpful for marking quilting lines. Simply lay down a 12" piece, stitch to the right edge of the tape, and keep moving it along. After a few lines, you'll be able to eyeball the quilting lines without using the tape. Try it!
