Featured Quilt - First Prize Miniature Quilts at the 2022 Birmingham Festival of Quilts

The winner of the Miniature Quilts category, sponsored by Baby Lock UK, at the 2022 Birmingham Festival of Quilts, was Sue Sherman with her quilt, Assorted Miniatures. This teeny tiny quilt (11" x 11") is no slouch in the awards department, having already won the Superior Threads Best Miniature Quilt Award at Paducah 2022, and being part of the collection of a little place called the National Quilt Museum.

On loan from the museum to the Festival, Susan had this to say about making the quilt, "What a treat to work tiny details using Liberty cottons! The challenge with this itsy-bitsy quilt was “stab” hand quilting, flipping it over and back again with every stitch so that stitches are neat both on top and bottom."

Hand appliquéd, English Paper Pieced, machine pieced, paper pieced, and hand quilted, the judges of the Festival commented, "Excellent! Wonderful use of techniques, with fabrics which relate to the scale. If you enlarged the quilt even the exquisite hand quilting would be in proportion. It is beautifully finished."
8 is Great!

It's week 8 of Transform Your Quilting. Time, tips, and techniques are quickly passing by.
Sally Collins is back with a a technique for Precision Chain Piecing (technique).  Show 1602 - Click on Chapter 3. Actually, this time it's a two-fer as she also shows you how to achieve perfectly ironed seams.

Do you like to use a thicker, decorative thread such as Razzle Dazzle in your bobbin?  Not sure how to tie off and bury those heavier threads? Ricky has a method he calls Lasso the Bobbin Thread (tip). No more trying to thread that fancy thread through the eye of a teeny tiny needle.

With Transform Your Quilting you can join in anytime and go back and re-watch any of the tips or techniques whenever you want. Just make sure you are LOGGED IN as a Star Member. Then, open your newsletters and follow the links. It’s fast learning and lots of fun.

How Can You Make Your Fabrics Fray-Free and Easy to Work With?
Terial Magic! That's How!

Terial Magic is a unique twist on a traditional fabric stabilizer that makes natural fiber fabric paper-like and fray-free once treated. Use it to stiffen fabric for crafting, keep fabric from fraying during sewing and appliqué, and so much more!

The Quilt Show Puzzle: A Simple and Squiggly Quilt
"Squiggles" by Christa Watson

Squiggles is a simple stitch-and-flip quilt made from a traditional pattern and Charm Packs. Christa used pre-cuts (2 1/2"Jelly Rolls and 5” square Charm Packs) to create Squiggles, which is a great way to use leftover scraps.

See more of Christa's quilts in How to Work with Pre-Cuts with Christa Watson | Modern Leaning Antique Quilts.
