Video Tutorial



Okay, I had a little too much fun putting this video together. It is around 6 minutes, so hunker down and plan for that. By the end of the video you will either be dancing or thinking I am the biggest dork - either way I had fun putting this together. I hope you like it!

You trying to compose yourself was too funny! Ha! The music was perfect for the speedy section, too! Awesome video.....and I loved seeing you work your way out of the tunnel. That's always a trick for me on my domestic machine, and I usually get a pucker!...Ugh!...so I try really hard not to make a tunnel! Awesome video! And was it nap time....where were the kids!?! :o)

karla said...

I love your quilting too !!!!

Laura T said...

Great tutorial! I'm always trying to figure out your path of quilting and now I see why I'm not able to:) Love the tutorial and would love to see more! How about contacting Craftsy and seeing about being filmed - I would sure love to buy that class!

Great video - I'm trying to follow the path and figure out how to do this on my DSM and keep the flowing lines going. Beautiful design!

Maria Wallin said...

Awesome video! You're just so cute! =)

And equally awesome quilt pattern, have to try that on a future quilt, it looked really fun to quilt and I have a recent major crush on feathers so this would be perfect =)

Thanks a lot for sharing!

Larissa said...

corina said...

Love the video! Your quilting is so phenomenal. I'm looking forward to more tutorials (hint, hint)!

Mommarock said...

Oh my gosh! I could have watched that all day! You make it look so easy. Like that is just your paint brush and you are the artist. I can't imagine doing that...ever! AMAZING!!!!! My attempt at FMQ on my little machine was rediculous.. and sad.

Jenny said...

Your awesome!!! That made me laugh when the music started!

Judith Blinkenberg said...

What a great tutorial. I love seeing you quilt. You make it look so easy. I haven't learned on mine yet but hope to soon. Like others I would like to see more videos. You are an awesome quilter! Thank You.

Sharon S said...

Thanks for sharing. You are such an inspiration! wonder if I listen to the music on my I pod if I can quilt that fast? Ha ha. Love the crack up blooper too!

Sarah Craig said...

Judi, I learn so much every time you post one of these video tutorials!! I agree - you ought to contact Craftsy about doing a video class - I would definitely pay for that!!! Thanks for sharing your wonderful talent with those of us who want to learn!!!

PS Love the "easter egg" after the credits!!!

Brita said...

That was way fun~! Thanks for sharing :-D

Frog Quilter said...

Loved it. So much fun.

Martha said...

Thanks for the video clip you are a real treat to watch!! You somehow manage to combine awesome talent with down-to-earth sweet humility. You make me want to walk away from the computer and have a try myself!I'm glad that you had fun and I hope that you'll make more. I do have a suggestion, perhaps next time you could use a contrasting thread, that way it would be easier to see the stitching.Thanks for being such an inspiration!

Sandy D said...

Awesome video.Fantastic quilter and I would love to be 1/10 as talented as you are.Thanks for the tutorial

Kate said...

you are just too funny - a great tute.... my DH was across the room, and after about a minute, he asked - honey, are you listening to someone snore????? it DOES sound like that... listen - it will make you laugh - seems like you laugh easily already, though!!

Sharon - Lilabelle Lane said...

Thank you so much for sharing. It is great to see you working your magic and fun to see you trying to compose yourself at the end. Perfect music choice. You are so generous with you time sharing that with us all. huge hugs

Leeanne said...

Awesome fun!! I love how you had the funky music, I kept waiting for Clint or one of the kids to come in bopping!.
I had a go at making a video of me quilting once, but it was just me laughing!!
Thanks for sharing the fun.

Thank you so much for this excellent video. I want you to do a different one everyday! Loved the music on the fast section. I want to try this design soon,

janice said...

Beautiful quilting! I was starting to get a little dizzy during the fast forward section with the camera moving so fast. lol

Laura said...

Fantastic video - thanks for sharing your talent and ideas with us.

Tamera said...

A couple of things that might have been helpful...1) Draw out the design on a whiteboard so we can see the various elements of the design and 2) Use a contrasting thread on a practice piece so we can see it on the fabric a bit better. WONDERFUL design. I think I would like to use it in the border of a quilt I'm quilting for a customer right now.

Heritage Keepsakes said...

That was awesome!! Loved all of it. Thank you for sharing your amazing talents with us.

Greenville Coupon Clippers said...

Wow, that is a lot of work! And back breaking too. It looks beautiful.

Barb said...

I love your work Judy....so amazing.

Kate C said...

This is so fun! Love to see your quilting, somehow watching helps me "get it" better. Thanks!

Vjquilter said...

I really love your quilting style and very much appreciate it that you share your talent with us. I agree-a video on Craftsy would be great! Just a helpful hint for the next video-I think it would most helpful if the person filming would hold the camera steady while focusing on the quilting continuously instead of moving around. Also, a contrasting colored thread would show up better too. I really want to try your pretty design on a quilt soon! Thank you!

mjm said...

love this Filler/E2E - need to try it on my next fleece for my pup & then I think a quilt that is coming up. Great Video!!

Scrapatches said...

Thank You! ... :) Pat

the Campfollower said...

Such a great tutorial! I love how all the sudden the dance music began. All 3 of my kids cam running.

Material Girl said...

Thank-you so much for the awesome quilting video, you are amazing!

Ann said...

Hi Judi,

I'll check the video later but I've got a couple of questions for you ...

First of all, which type of machine do you use? I don't think that you can do free motion quilting with a "simple" machine.

Second, are these patterns something you invent/that come from inspiration or is it a combination of quilting patterns on your machine or ...?

Just being curious/nosy ;-).

Have a nice day!
Ann

P.S.: I like your last posts (the bag you made, snuggles with children that grow up way too soon - mine are 6 and 4), etc.

ultraorganized said...

You made it look easy AND fun -- I'm still not sure I could do this after hours of practicing -- thanks for the video -- it helped !}

Alicia said...

LOVE it! Especially the very end! Supportive hubby, huh?

Melissa Corry said...

I don't know how I missed this when you first posted it but I just loved it. How fun are you with your mad video skills!!

Greenville Coupon Clippers said...

Now I know I could never do that! My neck would be killing me! Great video!

Rebecca Grace said...

Oh how FUNNY! Thanks for sharing this. Your feather swirls are one of my favorite fills. The only thing I had trouble figuring out from the video was the scale -- I'd love to see a ruler or a quarter on this design to help me understand how big the swirls are and how far apart the quilting lines are. Love the bloopers at the end, too!

Deana Hoepker-Steel said...

I really enjoyed your video and I enjoy your customer quilts. I'm looking forward to trying your swirled feathers.

Cheri C. said...

I don' t know what was more fun... just watching the video or watching my cat watch the video... he stared at it intently throughout the whole video. Great job - thanks for posting!!
