Yeaaay! My first class is now for sale! Click the link above.
In this first class, Paola Jo teaches you the secrets to easier Free Motion Quilting (FMQ): Stabilize~Details~Fills… This technique will minimize many FMQ issues…
A few reasons why S~D~F is So Important in FMQ…
1~ Keeps quilt flat & square (minimize wonkiness)
2~ Consistency of FMQ (shapes and sizes)
3~ Manage lumpy bumpy areas
4~ Borders & Turning
…just to name a few…
Plus…Paola Jo’s Philosophy about Oopsies and being Real is very encouraging…(you could apply this to many things in life…it’s worth the price of admission all by itself!)
The Summarizing Seder-izing is inspiring… (showing samples of how to apply S~D~F to several quilting styles…) You will want to take all the upcoming classes to learn more of Paola Jo’s creative secrets and enjoy your Free Motion Quilting! Grab a cup of coffee and join me!
MK invited me to join her Quilters Community, to offer online classes specializing in FMQ on her hosting site… MKQuilts Video Training Store
… I said Yes!
This week has been a rollercoaster of excitement, late nights and learning curves …
I had no idea how long an upload would take… or why it could not finalize…
but I think the video files are all completed… a few more clicks and they will be available for viewing!
Our introductory video highlights our similarities and differences in how we approach the same Disappearing 9Patch Block …
MK using HandiQuilter ProStitcher Premium Simulation software, then stitching by computer (PSP) …
and Paola Jo using Skitch to draw on photos to plan her “crazy awesome Free Motion magic”, then stitching it out all Free Hand…
You CAN learn to quilt like this! …using a computer guided system, or totally free hand… or a combination of BOTH! …we offer Oodles of Options!
Grab a cup of coffee or lemonade and a banana bread muffin… and enjoy our intro video… (oops… more computer stuff to upload or download or embed… I’ll add it as soon as I puzzle it out again…) Tutoluu!
Are you looking for an affordable and adorable way to turn your quilt tops into actual quilts? You’ve come to the right place… Seder Quilts!
My name is Paola and I offer a full range of quilting services and styles… Simple, Standard, Specialty, and Spectacular!
Simple all-over quilting designs are also called Edge-to-Edge (E2E), Border to Border, or Pantographs. One thread color throughout, not too closely stitched, it stays soft and fluffy, and is the most affordable option because it is quick and easy, with no rulers, no borders, no marking, and very little measuring.
Simple designs can be stitched by Freemotion Quilting or by Computerized Quilting; they can be Traditional (meander, floral, feathers, leaves), Modern (geometrics, straight lines, iconic silhouettes), or anything inbetween.
Freemotion Quilting (FMQ, Freehand, or Hand Guided) means I actually control the movement of my great big wonderful quilting machine (a HandiQuilter Fusion Longarm) by hand… I push, pull, wiggle, and squiggle every stitch.
Computerized Quilting means you choose a design from the ProStitcher computerized system connected to the quilter, and then the computer guides and controls the stitching as it moves. There are hundreds of designs to choose from, (and there are thousands more online.)
If you want something unique, I can design from your idea and stitch as I go… or plan, draw, and memorize an original image into the computer… (But we’ll talk about Specialty Custom Quilting another day!)
My name is Paola, I love quilting, and I would love to help you finish your next quilt! Contact me at SederQuilts@gmail.com or 701.388.1461.
