Modern Machine Quilting DVD Blog Hop: Day One

First up on my first ever blog hop is a good friend of mine, Faith Jones.

I met Faith at our very first meeting of the Naperville Modern Quilters Guild. As we went around the room introducing ourselves she obviously knew what she was talking about and I soon realized that there are a lot of people who are listening to her. Faith blogs at freshlemonsquilts where she describes herself as a maker of quilty things.

She tends to sit with Svetlana at Guild meetings and they always seem to be having too much fun!


Faith always has show and tell, whether it’s the most recent publication that has included her work,


or a quilt in progress (this one seems to have been in progress for a while but it’s going to be worth waiting for!).


Faith is a whizz at all things tech. We met one morning  and she tried to explain some social media stuff to me… I’m trying, I really am…

AND Faith is also one of the co-authors of a best-selling book!



I am so glad she agreed to preview my DVD. I hope she enjoyed it. You can read what she has to say about it today.

Check out the blog hop today and for the next ten days. Come back and comment on my blog any time until Christmas Day and I’ll be picking one lucky winner who will win a copy of Modern Machine Quilting. Here’s the complete list of bloggers:

    Your blog hop is fantastic! I so need your dvd – right now!!! I decided at the last minute to make a quilt for my Aunt. I have always hand quilted my tops. Needless to say, I can’t hand quilt this in time for Christmas. I will be purchasing your dvd and practicing come January. No more of this last minute panic and trying to remember how to use my walking foot. Thanks for the chance to add your dvd to my library.

    One of my next goals is trying free motion quilting . Your DVD is awesome, it takes some of the fright away for me as I’m scared to try anything bigger than a mug rug. Thank you for sharing Catherine, Modern Machine Quilting is a must for me.

  37. I’ve been focused lately on FMQ, generally trying to gather the courage to make the leap and figure it out. So I’m very intrigued by the beauty you can create with a walking foot. Can’t wait to learn from you!

  38. Jayne Willis said:

    I have always run the other way when FMQ is in the mix! But it is one of the techniques that I have wanted to try and semi-master! Another chance to learn…thank you!
