Modern Machine Quilting by Catherine Redford

Catherine has just released Modern Machine Quilting: Straight Lines, Spirals, Serpentines, and More!, a DVD/instant download video available through Interweave.

This is Catherine. Yep, she’s as nice as she looks. :) And bonus, she has a British accent. I love listening to people with accents.

I’ve been lucky enough to see much of Catherine’s work in person over the last couple of years. It is top notch, exceptional quality. She is a precision quilter and that quality of work shows in this video course.

Vintage Quilt Revival ~ One Last Look


Vintage Quilt Revival Inside Title Page

Over the last week I’ve spent more time at the computer and less time at the sewing machine. But for good reason – we just finished up our last edits for Vintage Quilt Revival. (Read my first post about the book here.)

It was really exciting to see the book all printed out. I know I’m biased, but it looks so good. I am absolutely bursting to show you all everything.

I’d love for you to tell your local quilt shops about Vintage Quilt Revival. It’s a great fit for both modern and traditional quilters and I think it will speak to a large audience. In the meantime, you can also preorder the book on Amazon.
