Hiring a Longarm Quilter: Footnotes Edition

Jessie ZeiglerComment

If you haven’t checked out Hiring a Longarm Quilter: An In-Depth Guide that I put together with Suzy Williams of Suzy Quilts, you definitely should! It’s packed with lots of information you may find interesting or helpful, hopefully both.

Did any particular project catch your eye? The nature of my job requires collaboration. The following are my photos of quilting on other makers’ tops! Here’s a list of––and links to––makers, patterns, & pantographs.

Snowflake QAL: Week Six

Jessie ZeiglerComment

I hope you enjoyed the break from the QAL last week. We're back at it today with Week Six!

Here are the specifics:

Snowflake Sampler: two 8" No Y Seam Feathered Stars

Star Flurries: two 20" No Y Seam Feathered Stars or Fierce Feathered Stars (your choice of construction method)

Feathered Star Blizzard: three 8" No Y Seam Feathered Stars

 

The 8" blocks can be found starting on p.39 of both the Snowflake Sampler and the Feathered Star Blizzard patterns.

Star Flurries folks, the 20" stars are nothing new to you. ;) You have SIX total left! Maybe you'll want to batch sew them? Maybe you'll want to enjoy the leisurely pace right up to the end of the QAL? The choice is yours!

These sweet blocks have stolen my heart! I just love the soft palette that  @sarai_hobbies  has made. (She's a great Instagram follow!)

This week of the QAL is sponsored by Lindsey Neill of Pen + Paper Patterns!  Before I kicked off this QAL, Lindsey helped me get the word out by making her own 36" Fierce Feathered Star. It's one of my favorite to date!

Lindsey is a wonderful designer and has lots of cute patterns! Check out her Etsy shop for her beautiful work.

Lindsey's Sewology quilt made it onto this beautiful V-neck tee made by Patchwork Threads! She'll be gifting the winner of this week's drawing with a gift card to Patchwork Threads so that you can order it in your size.
