Longarming: How Much Backing Fabric Do You Really Need?

Longarming: How Much Backing Fabric Do You Really Need?

As a longarm quilter for hire I sometimes have to work through quilting challenges, such as tops that aren't square or borders that are too big. By now I've quilted quite a few tops and have a few tricks up my sleeve to be able to handle most of the issues that come...

Razzle Berry – New Pattern Release Day

Razzle Berry – New Pattern Release Day

I'm SO excited to get to share with you the newest pattern in the Cooking Up Quilts line-up. This one is called Razzle Berry and I like it a lot. It's easy and fast and I love the way the fabrics play with each other in the layout. Naming patterns is something I...

MCM #176: Four Patch Finish and New Pattern Coming Soon

MCM #176: Four Patch Finish and New Pattern Coming Soon

Well I did it. I finally finished the quilting on the Four Patch. Whew! This one took longer than I expected. It was all ruler and freehand, and there were multiple starts and stops in each block. I always try to find a quilting path that minimizes the starts/stops...

MCM #172: Where Does The Time Go?

Hi there! How are you? I'm doing well, but apparently I'm a week behind. I don't know if you noticed, but I totally didn't post MCM last week. What was up with that?!? I'm going to chalk it up to 'brain fog' and the fact that my days are running into each other and...

MCM #171: A Mash-Up of Last Weeks Happenings

MCM #171: A Mash-Up of Last Weeks Happenings

Last week was a mix of ups and downs for me. I thought I was handling this whole virus/stay-at-home/social distancing thing pretty well. Turns out I might not be dealing with it as well as I thought. I decided to stay away from the news and try to focus on only...
