We are in the home stretch of Market prep, and looking forward to having all the work behind us soon! Today we talk about some of the quilting lessons we’ve learned the hard way, and share our blunders with you. Share your lessons in the comments!

At Market we will be here ::

Modaland at Market – look for us in booths 234 or 435 and the Schoolhouse starts at 4:05pm.

Come say hi, if you are there.


Checking tension on the long arm.

New machine, new 1/4″ test – even for a new block! Here’s a link to my method.

Sewing with pins. My favorite pins right now.

Strip piecing diamonds.  My labor of love – not strip pieced.

Make sure to have the right measurements – from EQ7

Mirror blocks, make sure to draw the 45-degree line opposite for the right composition.


Blogger’s Quilt Festival is coming next week! All the details are available here.

Please share in the comments, your lessons learned so we can all keep learning more together!
