June 9, 2020
In this video APQS Dealer and Educator, Angela Huffman, walks us through her “Echoed Tulip Dance” design. This is a great design to help refine your spacing skills.
Free quilt pattern: Christmas is coming
APQS Dealer Betty Reid’s close family ties served as the inspiration for her “Christmas is Coming” quilt pattern. Seeing presents under the tree with your name on the tag elevates the anticipation until the magical day when you can rip through the paper to see what’s inside!
Free quilt pattern: Zen
Aptly titled “Zen”, the quilt’s two-color scheme is definitely soothing, especially thanks to the generous use of white negative space.
Quilters on one side of the iron insist, “Always press toward the dark fabric!” The other side chants, “Always press to reduce bulk!” As a quilt piecer, I want it all—I don’t want my dark colors showing through my light fabrics; I want my patchwork to be accurate and I want it to be flat. But as a longarm quilter, eliminating bulky intersections that can break needles or distort quilting lines tops the list.
