Some Faux Batik Fun at the Rooster Creek Quilt Guild Retreat

I was honored to be able to share my mixed media, Mixing It Up-Faux Batik Tote Bags, at the Rooster Creek Quilt Guild September Retreat.

It was great fun to get them started with the resist. Then we were able to add the color to our fabric panels!

Once the paint was set, they set off creating their own unique tote.

Check out this promotional video that will hopefully inspire you to look into hosting this workshop at your guild or local quilt shop.

It was a great weekend to spend with great quilters!

The Leaf and Curl Simple Border Free-Motion Quilting Design

I love the colors and shapes of Fall!  I often use them in the art quilts I create.  Today I am sharing a mini lesson on free-motion quilting on how to do my favorite small border design.

For those of you that have taken any of my free-motion quilting classes, including my Craftsy class,  Exploring Natural Machine-Quilting Motifs, you know that I use basic shapes to create my quilting motifs.

This is explained in detail in my online class, use this affiliate link to find out more about this class.

So using my "E and L" shapes and the "C and J" shapes you can create this quick and easy border.

Be sure to share what you create with this motif in my Facebook Group, Linda B Creative.
