4th Annual Rooster Creek Quilt Show, 2019

Before the show I was able to interview, Teresa Cuno, the owner of Rooster Creek Quilting in Holts Summit, MO about this year's event.  Check it out here.

It was great to be able to see some great quilts, that were vintage, art, traditional, modern and some created by young quilters entered into the show. The winners of each category is posted in the Rooster Creek Quilter Facebook Group and on the Rooster Creek Quilting Facebook page.

This year I was able to have a vendor booth at the Rooster Creek Quilt Show. I love being able to share my work with other quilters.  This year I released several new patterns, including 3 new patterns that feature my Faux Batik Panel technique.

I also revamped my Little Escapes-A Day at the Beach pattern.

Finally, I was able to introduce my own greeting cards that feature some of my favorite quilts and quilted elements.

My booth was large enough to demo some of my favorite techniques.

It was great to meet others just as passionate about quilting as you are.

Thanks to Mike and Teresa Cuno, and all the Rooster Creek Quilters for a great show.  I love the new venue location.

I also want to send a special thank you to all my assistants Brooke, Riley, and Brett.  I could not have done it without you and your support.

Anyone Else Need Some Vitamin Sea?

Anyone else want to run away and play today?  I want to soak in some sun, with my feet in the water.

I may have to settle for a cold drink on the patio..... #workinggal #isitFriday?  #whyareMondayssolong? #landscapequilts #Destin,FL -Linda

Using Your Sewing Machine's Decorative Stitches to Applique

Many of us love to do our applique with a sewing machine.  The process is faster than doing it by hand.  You can also jazz things up a bit by using your machine's decorative stitches.  Be sure to use a needle plate that allows for wide stitches and the proper presser foot that allows the build up of thread to pass under with ease.  Check out the rest of my hints and tips in the following video.

Keep on being creative with your machine!
