Fresh Quilting & MQG membership giveaway!

Fresh Quilting & MQG membership giveaway!

Earlier this year, I taped two segments for Season 2 of Fresh Quilting, and the first of the two episodes featuring my segments is airing this week on the website. If you’re a Modern Quilt Guild member, you can binge-watch the entire season online (and Season 1, too)! Not a member? Here’s how to join.

This week’s segment is all about matching your binding to your piecing, and I show you how to match up both straight and angled binding.

Unfortunately, the segment was only 10 minutes long so I didn’t have time to show you how to match up binding colors when they meet at the corner as in the quilt behind me in the above photo, but if you’re interested in learning, the instructions are included in my pattern for Meeting of the Geese.

The MQG has been kind enough to sponsor a giveaway for your chance to win a membership to the MQG so you can take advantage of all their great content (like the pattern of the month that I released with them earlier this year)! If you’re already a member of the MQG, you’ll get a QuiltCon goodie bag.

To enter the giveaway, leave a blog comment! You can say anything, but if you need a prompt, tell me what aspect of your quilting you’d like to improve on next year. For an extra entry, follow me on Instagram and/or Facebook (and leave another comment telling me you did). Giveaway runs through noon on December 29.



Congrats JillB!

  1. I did watch this, and it’s so good. You are so clever! And so natural on camera. Keep up the good work – I’ll be looking forward to a lot of Flying Parrot Quilts in 2018!!!

  2. My main goal for 2018 is attempt to finish, not start. In terms of skill, I want to do more of my own quilting, maybe experiment with more design options with my quilting.

  3. I’d really love to improve the quality of my binding! And having the possibility of using different colors in the binding is very appealing!

  4. I would like to work on spending more time quilting! I also would like to work on trying to piece new blocks that I have never made before.

  5. I have stacks of Allison Glass and now have some quilters linen for background – will be making her feathers quilt this coming year – also need to finish a paper pieced quilt that was started in a class many years ago – those are my top two projects for 2018.

  6. I’m really hoping to bump up my creativity. It always seems as though I’m designing something only to see it’s already been done. Releasing fear is on my 2018 to-do list!

  7. I started quilting this year and my goal for 2018 beyond organizing my messy quilting area (my dining room) I’d like to keep working on my FMQ and try some curved piecing.

  8. I would love to be a member again of MQG. Since money was tight something’s were let go. I would like to see more fusion of old patterns done in a modern fashion.
