Modern Machine Quilting Blog Hop!!!



Let me introduce you to my friend, Catherine Redford. You may have seen her on Quilting Arts TV. She is certainly a jack of all trades in the quilting industry! She's a master at African Folklore embroidery, clamshells and hexies (!!!!), wool appliqué and embellishment, and machine quilting.

Catherine and I met on the set of Quilting Arts TV a few years ago when we were both filming for the first time. We bonded and have stayed in touch ever since, even rooming together when we both taught in Chattanooga a couple of years ago.

So here is Catherine's newest video, Modern Machine Quilting!


I watched the entire 87 minute video yesterday and was very impressed! If you've ever wanted to take a class on free motion quilting, just buy the video. The instruction is excellent and I know I'm going to try some of Catherine's techniques in the near future. She walks the viewer through all sorts of fun filler patterns and even unique border patterns. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Catherine will be drawing names at the end of the run for at least two DVD winners and a grand prizewinner who will receive a Stella task lamp (winner’s choice of color!) and a DVD AND one of my CURVED HEXAGON RULERS!  Remember people need to comment on CATHERINE'S  blog (any day) to be in with chance of winning something from her.

  12. I have to say without Catherine doing her blog hop I would be totally unaware of your books and ruler, after navigating through your information and wonderful pictures I'm hooked and yet another dimension of patchwork quilting to develop - maybe the ruler would set me going on a new adventure!
