We are honored to welcome the LUKE Haynes Quiltllaborations Exhibit to the AccuQuilt Gallery. Quiltllaborations is a series of collaborative projects that LUKE Haynes worked on with other artists and quilters. Haynes did most of the piecing, while artists like Liz Tran and Carlos Jesus Dominguez provided the painting elements on a couple of quilts. Quilters Libs Elliott and Heidi Parkes also worked with Haynes on piecing one quilt each.
Not only does quilter Marjorie Busby have awesome tips on her embroidery techniques, but she also has some great advice on healthy eating habits thanks to her background in clinical nutrition.
Hi, it's Marjorie Busby today from blue feather quilt studio to share a tutorial for a Fun Flower quilt that is quilted in the hoop. First, let me say that the Fun Flower die is my all-time favorite. It is so quick and easy to stitch with machine embroidery and it's just the right size to use in so many different ways. It fits perfectly on a 6" square like the center of an uneven nine patch from the 12" Qube. And it is used on lovely Carolina blue place mats at my house to honor our alma mater, the University of North Carolina. Fun flowers transform a plain alternating block on a quilt to a quick, easy and beautiful joining block. I have even used it to cover a permanent magic marker stain on the side front of a little girl's t-shirt. The following pictures show a couple of examples of the ways I like to use Fun Flowers.
