Paula recently made this darling pineapple quilt and send it to me for some machine quilting. I've shared several of Paula's other quilts in the past, and I've had so much fun quilting them for her. She's made a special quilt for every single one of her grandchildren and now they've started to get married, so she's making them for the in-laws. How awesome is that!
I recently custom machine quilted this fabulous Double Wedding Ring quilt for Ashley! I love this quilt, the Double Wedding ring has got to be the most classic wedding quilt and the color combination that Ashley chose for her quilt is just stunning!
Ashley asked me to machine quilt this fun quilt with some feathers and also add in her wedding date. Other than that she let me quilt it however I thought looked best.
It's that time of year again. International Quilt Market is this weekend, that means our screens will be full of new yummy quilty inspiration. I won't personally be attending Quilt Market this time around, we've got a family memeber getting married, wait we can't wait to see all of the beautiful pictures from the show.

Last week I spent the week in Sandy, Utah teaching at UQSM. So far this year I've been traveling and teaching quite a bit this year and after this event I'm feeling more energized and excited about the future than I have in quite some time!
At the show I taught four, hands-on classes, Beginner's Guide to Free-Motion Quilting, Next Steps In Machine Quilting, Creative Background Fillers and Visual Guide to Free-Motion Quilting Feathers. I had full classes and my students were fabulous. I loved watching them improve on their machine quilting skills from the beginning of class to the end of class, it's so gratifying to be able to witness the light-bulb moment.
I'm so excited today to share our newest fabric collection, Flourish by Natalia Bonner & Kathleen Whiting for Moda Fabrics.
Like our first fabric collection, Thrive for Moda Fabrics, Flourish is made from all the colors we love and love to use in our homes. The prints are mostly line designs based off of my machine quilting designs. The prints in Flourish are great as stand alone prints, or they can be fabulous blenders, they are great to blend with your favorite fabrics.
Cecilia sent me this beautiful quilt and asked me to custom machine quilt it for her. Cecilia did have some ideas in mind for the machine quilting and I was able to bring those ideas to life. That's what I love most about machine quilting!
I'm super excited to officially begin to introduce you to our new quilt patterns, that feature our upcoming fabric collection, Flourish. Flourish is by Natalia & Kathleen for Moda fabrics and will be in stores fall 2018.
Today I get to introduce you to one of my favorite patterns, Strawberries Forever. I love this fun pixelated looking strawberry, and even though it may look like a lot of piecing it actually went together pretty quickly!
Vanessa of Lella Boutique designed and made this darling Little Cottontail mini quilt. The bunny is so dang cute, and Vanessa has an adorable coordinating large quilt pattern coming out in May! You can check out more details about this fun pattern over at Lella Boutique.
Over the last few months I've had a lot of fun sharing my machine quilting with you all over on YouTube. I've loved sharing there and the positive feedback that I've received from so many of you has been so fabulous and has pushed me to share even more of my work via video.
I've been searching for the right platform to share more and I feel that I've found the perfect fit for me, Patreon. Don't get me wrong, I will still be sharing a lot of my work on YouTube, but in my new Patreon videos I'll be sharing more about my process. I'll share more of my thought process, help you understand how I decided to quilt what I quilt where I do and hopefully teach you take you own machine quilting to a fun new creative place.
