The Quilters Path

I love watching quilters quilt. There’s something mesmerizing about watching the needle go up and down and the quilt designs appear, almost magically by wonderful quilters.




The Quilters Path is a Craftsy class by Christa Watson and it is the most wonderful resource - especially perfect if you’re a home quilter with a domestic machine. Christa runs through the basics of machine quilting and teaches us how to quilt with a walking foot as well as free motion quilting. Honestly, she makes it look so easy!

If you’re like me, you pretty much have a basic meandering pattern as your free motion quilting go-to. In this class, Christa shares many new designs and breaks them down into simple, manageable processes, so that the thought of quilting a whole quilt (with a new design) isn’t completely overwhelming.

For a limited time, The Quilters Path is 50% off, so click through the link and purchase this class today… and the best thing about Craftsy classes is that you can go back to it at a later time. And then back to it again and again and again.



I’ve used simple the pinwheel block (pattern is available in the course lesson) to create a little table runner which I could practise with. In my opinion, you can never have too many table runners in your stash. I swap mine around every couple of weeks to give the space (dining table, side table, hall table etc) a fresh new look.

Here’s my attempt at the free motion loops and flowers. I started out a little wobbly, but by the end, I had the hang of this effective design. As Christa says, don’t worry too much about the individual stitches as the final texture is all we’ll see and admire.

I’ll share a picture of the table runner when I finish adding the binding… hopefully very soon.
