My husband and I have been spending a little time "jerry rigging" my quilting machine! I purchased a stitch regulator and we got it installed 100% on Saturday morning! This is longarm quilting on a budget for sure! I would love to have a fancy, wonderful quilting machine, but for now this is what I have to quilt my own quilts. It's a Bailey Home Quilter and is just a basic quilting machine. But that's all I need for now. The stitch regulator worked wonderfully and it was much less stressful to do a little quilting!


The quilt loaded on the machine is a small wall hanging sample for one of my workshops I'll be doing in February in the Garland, Texas area. This is a cut away appliqué technique making the zebra appliqué much easier to sew in place! This class will be taught at Sew Let's Quilt It. I'll be teaching The Gardens of a King at Happiness Is Quilting in McKinney, TX, and also will be doing the program and workshop at the Garland quilt Guild. Both stores will be having Holiday Open Houses in the coming days and some of my quilts will be on display. If any of you live in the north Dallas area, be sure to stop by!

Please let me know if you have any questions about the new pattern. I'll be happy to answer them!

Have a wonderful day!




  1. I just love how that quilts looks and all of the beautiful appliqués.
    I would love a basic machine, just so I can put it on roller bars and quilt with handles, that would be enough for me.


  2. Your new pattern is gorgeous! What a beautiful job you have done!

  3. Learning wool applique on cotton and EPP are two things on my 2015 bucket list of things to learn. Hope your quilting machine does the job for you

  4. glad you got it looks great.

  5. It's gorgeous girlfriend! Be sure and post it on my FB group. I know they will love to see it and hopefully, you will get some customers too! :)
