A Herringbone Quilt Tutorial

PrintE-mail

Maureen Cracknell shares a new quilt project - and technique tutorial.

894-Herringbone_Tutorial1

Interested in stepping out of the "block" and trying a new quilting style?

Maureen Cracknell will ease you into the "Quilt As You Go" style by helping you make a quilt with long panels rather than the traditional block quilt. Perfect for scraps - and perfect for experimenting with new techniques! Maureen is excited about the possibilities: "I think you'll be very surprised at just how simply and quickly this quilt comes together. This is definitely one of my new, most favorite syles of quilting!" Maureen uses her Horizon Memory Craft 12000 to create this, and her entire collection of whimsical and colorful quilts, home decor and sewing projects.

Visit her blog to see all of her pieces and projects, or click here for the quilt project instructions. You can even find a detailed video including this "Quilt As You Go" method with Anna Maria Horner in her Right Turn Bag project for Janome.

Video: Topstitching With The Adjustable Blind Hem Foot G

PrintE-mail

323-video-topstitching-adjustable-blind-hem-foot-gHere's an easy technique for making terrific topstitching.

Sure, you can use the Adjustable Blind Hem Foot G to make hidden stitches (see Creating A Blind Hem Stitch). But because of its adjustable guide, this accessory makes it easy to add topstitching along an already finished seam.

Using The Adjustable Blind Hem Foot G To Do Topstitching

  1. Choose a straight stitch.
  2. Adjust the flange to give you the desired "bite" (distance from the edge).
  3. Guiding the edge of your already sewn seam along the flange, sew your stitching.


Now you have a row of topstitching a perfect distance from the seam.

To see this demonstrated watch Adjustable Blind Hem Foot Video: Doing Topstitching.

For help making sure you have the right presser foot, ask your local Janome dealer.

Notes from Anna Maria Horner

PrintE-mail

Anna Maria Horner takes us on a tour of color planning and design.

885-AMH-postJanome Spokesperson Anna Maria Horner is well-known for her amazing eye and wise use of color in her fabric desgins, as well as her sewing patterns. Today, Anna shares her thoughts on color and pattern in design, as well as an inspiring photo tour of some of her recent work.

Just one fabulous insight from her in-depth article:

"Even if you boast an enviable printed fabric stash, including solids is hardly limiting yourself. You have the entire spectrum to choose from and endless combinations of solid color can do much of the design load for your patchwork."

Click below to read the entire piece, and prepare to get inspired for new sewing challenges!
