Dragonfly Tutorial Video

Okay - don't make fun of me - I am not a camera kind of girl, but I did a little tutorial on my Dragonfly Template. I hope it is helpful to you quilters out there!

Awesome tutorial, Judi!! Thank you!! You ROCK!!! :-)

SoozeM said...

Wow that is a fantastic video, I just love watching you do that background, beats a Hollywood blockbuster any day, thank you so much!!!

Karen said...

I agree, you make it look soooo easy! How amazing to be able to see you at work when we've all admired your quilts for so long.

Also it was rather tripping to hear your voice. Some thing you take for granted when you meet people in person, then in contrast you follow people online and it doesn't occur to you that you don't know how they sound or maybe even how they look!

DianeY said...

Wow! I am so impressed! You did a wonderful job!

Michelle said...

I love how your machine kind ofsounds like a dragonfly when they are really close to your ear - appropriate!

This video kinda tripped me out - it definitely made me want to learn but i think I'll just leave that to the pros!

♥Duff said...

great tutorial, Judi! I cracked up when you said "just be creative" because that's something that comes so naturally to you and the rest of us are jealous!! I think I might have to try this out on a practice piece--you've made it look so easy!!

Hi Judi , loved your tutorial - your dragonfly is beautiful. You make it look so easy on a long arm.
I had a go on a long arm at a quilt show last week and it felt so strange moving the machine and not the quilt.

Marie said...

I could sit here for hours looking at you freehand-quilt! Boy I could use a long arm...

Sunnybec said...

I could just sit and watch you quilt all day, you make it look so easy, I find it so relaxing just watching you produce perfect little pictures. You are one very talented lady. Linda

WOW.. thanks so much! That is a GREAT TUT... Thanks a MILLION Ias I have said in the past you continue to amaze and impress me!

Karen said...

I REALLY enjoyed getting to watch you work... such a fluid movement... my granddaughter came in while I was watching and she, too, became transfixed!

Jackie said...

You did a great job! I always like seeing you in action.

Elisa said...

You are so talented! I was SO fascinated by the "filler" portion of the quilting. Beautiful!

Great Tutorial and video!! Thank you so much for sharing!

Sarah Craig said...

Once again, I am amazed at your quilting - but dying to try it myself! Thanks for sharing how you do it - as with everything, it looks so hard until you see how it's done. Not to deny your obvious skill - mine will not look nearly as good, I'm sure! - but it does look like something I could learn to do!!

You make it look easy.....I LOVE dragonflies. Thanks for sharing this with us :-)

Josie McRazie said...

My gosh you are incredible!!!

Primitive Seasons said...

Can you tell me what kind of quilting machine you use and where they are available. I have so many unquilted tops that need to get done and this really intrigues me. Thanks so much.

Melissa said...

This turns out so pretty:) It kinda' seems like doodling with a jackhammer to me, though; I have never seen a long arm machine in action before today. I imagine it takes lots of practice to get it to seem so flawless and easy for you:) Thanks for inspiring me today!

Jenny said...

Hey cute girl! That video rocks! So much fun watching you quilt! Loved it!

regan said...

Are you kidding??? Make fun of you!?! This video was awesome! I learned so much! I know it takes so much talent, patience and tons of creativity. You make it look soooo easy! Thank you so much for giving me the push to get on my next project. I was actually going to email you asking for some suggestions, but I'm looking at those fantastic swirlies and shells, and I know I'm going to do something with that!

YOU ROCK! Thanks!

You are such an inspiration to me. One of these days I hope I can quilt half as good as you. I know it will take "LOT'S of practice.

Thanks

What a great video! Love it! Very inspiring!

Andrea said...

This is awesome. As a newer quilter it is so great to see videos like this. Please to more in the future. You are super talented and inspiring.

Lisa said...

I could watch for hours! Great amazing work!!

Pam said...

Thanks for sharing your technique. Like everyone said, you do make it look easy, but I know that behind each of your beautiful quilts there are many hours of practice. When you are doing a design like that, how many stitches per inch do you set your machine at?
Thanks!

Crystal Hendrix said...

Awesome tutorial! Thank you so much! I am just amazed at how well you quilt!! Ahh it inspires (wishes) me to try new techniques and expand my quilting horizon!!

I did want to say a good shout out to the camera man (woman)! They did a GREAT GREAT job showing us what your doing. I love the different angles they reached! It made it a LOT easier to follow! THANK YOU!!!!

Jackie said...

That looks so cool...makes me want to get a long arm...but then you have done more than just practice make it look that easy :)

Margarita said...

thank you so much for the tutorial, I am speechless, it is gorgeous. I so wish I could do that.

Great video! I'm going to have to give this a try. I love love that you mix up the fills. I don't know if I'll ever be that brave.
