Quilting up a Cascade

During the cold spells and snow and ice storms, I've been huddled in my sewing room, preparing samples for my upcoming class at The Quilt and Sewing Fest of New Jersey, which is just a couple short months away (April 28 - and a Saturday!). The workshop is one-of-a-kind and is currently not being taught any other time in the future.

This is just a teaser of the several motifs we will learn and practice, while we investigate cascade quilting: modern approaches to traditional feather quilting. I've been using these motifs for years and experimenting with different ways to quilt them, on their own and surrounded by other quilting. Here, I've paired some Kona solids with contrasting Aurifil thread to showcase my hard work (thank you to Robert Kaufman and Aurifil!). Let that quilting show!

I'm also bringing several quilts (some not previously seen online) and there will be lots of time and space for detailed, guided practice. Confident beginner free motion quilters and up will be most comfortable.

Won't you join me for this special class? There are some spots available - click here to register and see the supply list. I'm so excited!



  1. Sounds like a fun class. Your samples look great and I hope you have fun!

  2. Very nice. That was a tease. I hope you show us the finish.

  3. Looks like it will be a great class, I really like the string of leaves design.


Let's start a conversation! I love comments and I'd be happy to reply to all who have an email address accessible. Thanks for commenting!
