Happy spring, Rockstars! My name is HollyAnne Knight of String & Story where it’s my job to guide you to quilt with confidence. Today, I’m here with a fun, fast project and some free motion quilting inspiration!
A sewing machine is an essential part of the quilting process, so you’ll need to know the types of things to look for when purchasing a sewing machine as well as how to thread it and wind a bobbin properly. But the important thing to know as it relates to quilting is how to sew a perfect ¼” seam. Sewing a consistent ¼” seam is the most critical element in making sure your quilt top comes together nicely because if that seam is off, your entire quilt will be crooked.
Quilter and designer Connie Kresin Campbell is a self-professed homebody who has no desire to travel and is the most content when in her sewing room or at a quilt store. This talented quilter whose passion for free-motion quilting developed after seeing a demonstration many years ago, currently has several hundred quilting projects in her collection. Her husband, although incredibly supportive, wonders if some of her creations will ever reach another destination since Kresin Campbell has taken over their home in Iowa.
