Christina Cameli is a quiltmaker and new author. Her book "First Steps to Free-Motion Quilting – 24 projects for Fearless Stitching" with C&T, is not just a beginners guide, it is much more. When I ask quilters what they want to learn more about, it's free motion quilting. And when I ask them why they don't do it more, they tell me they are afraid. Afraid of messing up. Christina has some great tips for us!
Pretty fabric at a show will stop me dead in my tracks, I bet you can relate! When at the Houston show I was going by the Fiber On a Whim booth, and not only did the hand dyes look amazing.. but they looked different. Upon taking a closer look I realized they were burlap! I've been seeing a lot of burlap on the internet but mostly tan. Nothing in these juicy colors. Kristin Rodriquez and her mom Jan Girod told me all about using burlap and I now Kristin is here with me today to share with you!
