This week I have been doing lots of sewing, unfortunately mostly for a birthday gift that won't be received until next week, so I can't share that yet, but as a teaser I have an upcoming tutorial on how to do letters in reverse applique- which was lots of fun and had a really cool effect, so please come back next week for that. I have finally managed to record a video tutorial for free motion quilting my Jigsaw Puzzle design, so have a look- the video is a bit long as I wanted beginners to be able to see the design several times so it really sticks, if you are not a beginner just view the first part and you will have it down. I had a few people ask me how this might work on a postage stamp style quilt- the answer is perfect- no marking lines, just use your seam lines and you are good to go. I made a little pillow in a postage stamp pattern so you can see for yourself how it looks I think the quilting is a bit hard to see in the pictures- but you will get the idea. Also my good friend and fellow blogger Marisa Voorhees is giving away one of my aprons from my etsy shop on her blog, so if you are interested in winning a free apron stop by her blog to get more info on that. So without further adieu here is my first ever video tutorial- hope you enjoy!
