The celebration continues with a give-away or two!

Today my friend Bonnie Hunter is writing about my book over on her blog at Quiltville. If you are here because Bonnie sent you…

WELCOME!!

If you are here because you are a regular reader…

WELCOME to you too!!

I’m writing this before I see what Bonnie has actually written so I hope she liked it?

This is the book.
Modern Machine Quilting by me!

Years ago I was looking after a friend’s children and one of them wanted to know why I had a variety of seasonal decoration hanging on the kitchen cabinet door knobs. Rather than tell her it was because I just hadn’t got around to taking them down, I replied “because every day is a celebration in our house”…

I’ve often thought about that since then. Maybe “every” is a slight exaggeration but I certainly do like a celebration!

So, today we are celebrating the book with a couple of give aways.

Bonnie has one over at her page where you can win a copy of the book. Make sure to sign up for that one. She’ll be letting me know the winner and I’ll be mailing a signed copy out next weekend.

AND, leave a comment here telling me your favorite method of quilting your quilts ( hand, machine or check book?) and I’ll be picking some winners (at random) to win some of my favorite quilting notions, including a Kwik Klip for closing your safety pins, a chalk pencil, some batting tape and a packet of #80 sharp needles. There might be some extra goodies in the package, and there might be more than one winner…

I hope that sounds good. I’ll look forward to reading  your comments. I’ll be announcing the winner next Sunday morning so you have until midnight (CST) Saturday 17th to leave a message!

 

IF you don’t want to wait to see if you’re a winner you can buy Modern Machine Quilting wherever you usually buy quilting books. Your local quilt store will be happy to order it for you if they don’t have it in stock. You can find it at  the Fons and Porter on-line store where you will receive an instant digital table runner with your purchase  and of course there is always Amazon…

Thanks for stopping by. Sign up for updates on my Facebook page .

Let’s make every day a celebration in all our homes!

    I found out about this book through Bonnie Hunter’s blog. I usually hand quilt, but have done a little machine quilting with my 40 year old Singer. This just might help me expand my horizons. That’s always a good thing, I think.

  12. Hi, I’m here from Bonnies blog. I love all her support of everyone. I enjoy hand quilting but it is just so slow. I really need some inspiration for machine quilting as I give my quilts to charity and would like to do more than just stippling. I would love to have your book to follow and help me out.

    Hi Catherine How wonderful that both you and Bonnie have your books as a giveaway. I quilt sometimes by hand, or by machine if the quilt is small. The big quilts I pay a long arm Quilter!! to quilt (very expensive in Australia so only about one each year go out to be quilted). I would love to be more versatile with using my domestic machine. Your book wouid certainly provide lots of encouragement. Thank you for the opportunity to participate

    I read Bonnie’s blog. I’ve always been scared of trying to machine quilt anything bigger than a baby quilt. Trying to stuff all the fabric in a large quilt under a small machine throat is very difficult. Which leads me to paying someone although I’m not always satisfied with that either. Would love to learn a better way to finish a whole quilt myself!

    Hi, I have been reading your blog for some time now, also read Bonnies daily. Looking forward to your new book. I do straight line quilting but mostly hand quilting. Right now I am hand quilting a quilt for a Grandson due in September and machine quilting one for his big brother . There must be an easier way.

  231. Bonnie sent me over and I think I’ll stay a bit and have a look around, if you don’t mind. I might even sign up to follow since, honestly, I think this is the first time I’ve seen your blog. My favorite quilting method is to do it myself. I use my domestic machine for small projects and rent time on a longarm at a local quilt store for large projects. So it’s kind of the best of both worlds. This book would really come in handy since most of the times I’m guessing on how to quilt or what to do. I don’t want a computer program to do it for me either. Thanks for the chance to win a copy. Karen

    Machine quilting puts fear in my heart. But I like to do anything that is a straight line or follows a shape. Free motion quilting is not my strong suit. I keep trying. The book sounds interesting and useful. And, I struggle with perfection. It has to be perfect or it comes out. Not always a good thing.

    I am pretty good at hand quilting but it takes forever. If I machine quilt it is usually just a stitch in the ditch. Someone once told me you should quilt your quilts when you first start piecing them. By the time you are good at piecing you will also have quilting down. Well, I didn’t do that but I still keep trying to impove my quilting. I would love to win your book. Please enter me in your drawing

    Saw your book on Bonnie’s blog. Looks full of amazing ideas. I started quilting on my domestic machine and sent my big quilts out to be quilted but was frustrated because I lost “ownership” of my quilts because people notice the quilting first. So 1.5 years ago I bought a sit down longarm and do all my quilting myself and I love it! Having a big throat on the machine makes a world of difference. Looking for any tricks to move beyond meandering and swirls.

    I’ve been developing my quilting skills for about 5 years now. Hand quilting is fun, and I have been toying at machine quilting. I read every source that I can find about machine quilting as I don’t feel comfortable with what I have been able to do so far. Bonnie Hunter spoke very highly about your book. I am thinking that it might be a lifesaver for me. I’ll cross my fingers and hope that I win!

    Bonnie sent me to your blog. Congratulations on your new book. I have done some straight line quilting on small items on my machine but haven’t gotten the courage to tackle a larger quilt. Most of my quilting is done with the check book. Maybe I could learn some good pointers from your book that would give me the confidence to give a larger quilt a try.

    Bonnie sent me!! And I am so glad she did because I love what I have seen of this book so far and having on in my own library would be FANTASTIC!!!! And i know I will make that happen because quilting my own projects is something I keep saying I want to do, but don’t. So, saying that, my quilting is done by cheque and she even has a bolt of batting of mine at her house because that just makes it easier…….

    I am not comfortable with my sewing machine so I find that I keep reading the how-to’s but don’t try what I am reading/learning. My quilter has told me she will teach me – so I really do need to leap and know i won’t fall. I am landing on quilt after all and it won’t hurt so why the hesitation??? Your book looks beautiful. And so well worth the cost and the time to read and learn – AND DO THE LESSON’S!!!! Thank you so much for the opportunity to win my own copy and I will be becoming a regular visitor. Now that I have found you, I don’t want to loose you! Have a great summer and enjoy the new title of ‘author’!!!

    I do very simple machine quilting on baby quilts – ditch, outline etc to enable the baby to have a quilt before it gets to school age

I do so like quilting by check, but it’s getting harder and harder to find custom quilters… most in my area just want to do edge to edge designs, which are not my favorite.

    Hi, another migrant from Bonnie’s blog impressed with what was shown from the book! I primarily quilt my quilts on my DSM although there are some projects that call out for a go at hand quilting. I’m looking to try some “modern” motifs and saw some inspirations here. Win a copy or buy a copy, this is now on my wish list!

    Yes I use my checkbook often to get my quilting done but your book makes it less daunting to work it out myself 🙂 I have tried it myself with tedious luck and teeth clenched but I like the creative process of doing it. However there are lots of pitfalls to the inexperienced and you explain how to make it flow a bit smoother with helpful guidance to relieve some of the frustrations! I noticed Bonnie Hunter offering your book and last week I previously I also had seen it offered and reviewed by an ebay book seller who found it outstanding. Thank you for offering a fresh approach and great instruction!! And Thank you for the draw – Now maybe I won’t have to have endure an aching jaw and multiple frustrations!! 🙂

  548. I started out hand quilting (got burned out on a large quilt with double feathers) but I still hand quilt small projects. I’m not very good at FM, but, am trying to learn it (again). I’m not bad a straight line (or wavy) quilting, and will be taking a ruler class next month. I have quilted with my checkbook, on large quilts. I’m a ‘never say never’ type of person, and am usually willing to at least try something new. PS: You’ve been to my quilt guild, more than once, in Plainfield/Naperville.

I’m in a group and we make lap quilts for people who are ill, grieving depressed or any reason that they need a bit of happiness in their life.

    Bonnie sent me! I quilt by credit card, at a local longarm shop where they help me set up and I can then FMQ or use their computer aided device. Time is often the determining factor in that choice. What I’d love is to be able to quilt on my sewing machine because then it will be made 100% by me!

    Bonnie sent me and I would love to win a copy of your book. I machine quilt on my DSM, mostly SITD at this stage. I have recently taken a Craftsy class in this but I learn better if I have a hard copy book to reference while I am learning new techniques, guess that dates back to before the days of the I-net, LOL! Your book is beautiful. Thank you for the opportunity to enter your drawing!

    Yes…..Bonnie sent me, too. How thrilled you must be to see YOUR name on the cover of a book! This one promises to be immensely popular as we all hope to quilt what we want to see in our minds on the finished product. I bought a mid arm almost as two years ago and have started expanding my abilities. Seeing your processes as well as the illustrations would help me along my way to being more successful. Thanks!

    Bonnie Hunter sent me! As for quilting my projects, I would like to quilt by check but it doesn’t fit my budget as 71 year old on a small income. I have true FMQ but Not all the great at it. Seeing the cover of your new book makes me think quilting something besides in the ditch is promising!

    I am so happy Bonnie has sent me. I love simple straight line quilting and modern quilting. I do quilt on a home machine with a walking foot, stitch in the ditch foot and the quilt top, not the quilting is the statement. I would love to learn how to add that “WOW” factor with your help. So excited to see your book, I could certainly use
    your help.
    Thank you!

    When I actually finish a quilt, I attempt to machine quilt it, when the machine is behaving for me, since I usually need it done ASAP. I requested your book from the library (It’s ready for pickup!) since I haven’t been to the quilt shop yet and the library had a copy. I’ve been enjoying your travels lately. Inspiring but I’m not that motivated the garden is calling me. Your SD class is tempting too…

    I came today because you will be speaking at my quilt guild in South Holland this fall and I wanted to read about you. Perfect timing! I will machine quilt up to a baby sized quilt. Anything larger than that goes to a longarmer!

    Bonnie Hunter sent me, introducing me to your website. I quilt by check book mostly, paying a quilt shop with a long arm quilter for my bed size quilts. But I tried your method of quilting in a circle from the center on a little 14′ square table topper and I liked it! I hope to learn more from your book and do more quilting on my home sewing machine. I hope I win it. If not, I’m going to buy it!

  612. Hi, Catherine. I quilt on a domestic machine, mostly with a walking foot because it’s really tough to manage the weight of a full-size quilt while free motion quilting. But I’d like to practice more on small pieces and, when I’m more confident, try again on the larger ones. I enjoy your posts and your beautiful photographs!
