Video Tutorial

Okay, promise not to laugh at my cheesy tutorial with funky disco music.  Just remember I have a very limited movie making budget (hehe) and I only have 2.2 seconds in between needy kids to put together a tutorial - so if you don't like it, don't tell me. Otherwise, enjoy! And let me know if you try out my diamond sashing. Have a great weekend everyone.

lol! Are we allowed to tell you if we *do* like it? The funky disco music is fun and the speed-ups are cool. Super video tutorial. Thanks - you make it look easy and extremely inviting to try.

Michelle Watson said...

Fantastic video! I love your quilting. And your video is much slicker than the only one I've done, which involved an upturned waste paper bin, a can of canellini beans and my iPhone!!!

Thanks so much for sharing.

Mrs A said...

fabulous! I want one of those long arms, you make it look easy !

Conlill said...

LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT!!!

Ranch Wife said...

I am completely entranced with watching you work your magic. Beats anything on TV...you should have your own show.

Flo @ Butterfly Quilting said...

This is so great Judi! It does look easy ( and fast lol) when you do it, but I learn so much from watching you work! Thanks.
I do have a question, and you have probably answered this before, but what kind of marking pen do you use?

Gene Black said...

You certainly do make it look easy. I am learning to FMQ on a domestic machine. I know it is not as easy as you make it look. You do some awesome work.

Leanne said...

That looks like great fun to do. What marker do you use and does it all come out when you spray it like that? I just love the design.

Maria said...

Thank you!!!!! I'm going to learn to love my longarm yet!!!

Laura said...

I am amazed at your talent!

Kelli said...

I love the design of your quilting!! It looks amazing. I am just learning to FMQ.. maybe someday I will get there. :) xo
p.s. I didn't hate the cheesy music and may have broken into a dance. hehe

Sherrill said...

That is absolutely disgusting--how easy you make that look, I mean! LOL Gorgeous as is everything you do. It scares me so doubt I'll ever try it but thanks so much for sharing a little of your 'magic'!

Karen @ Pieces of Contentment said...

Your work is brilliant. I've never seen a long arm quilting machine in operation. Great to see how you achieve such wonderful results. You are a true master of the craft.

shari said...

I am a new follower to your blog and all I can say is "WOW"....I am a beginner in quilting, but this is just amazing!!!!!Love your work, truly beautiful!

Dora, the Quilter said...

Thank you so much for sharing this. I was intrigued by this portion of your design when I saw it on your post about Thelma's quilt. Sot it's nice to see how you did it. (Ah, I do so want a long arm machine!)

Patty said...

You made it look so easy! Are the pebbles all freehand? Your quilting definitely makes the quilts! Looking forward to your book!!

Melissa Corry said...

Fantastic!! I love your video's, especially the music :)

Terri in BC said...

Now I want to try that myself - if I ever figure out how to have consistent stitching on my domestic machine when I FMQ. I sooooo want a machine!

Fiona said...

Great.. you make it all look so easy!!! I love the use of a ruler to help with lines... I don't use a long arm but your tips and tutorials help me lots ... thanks...

IHaveANotion ~ Kelly Jackson said...

Get out of here Judi! I loved the music...and the fast forward :)

Also, I have to say ...."really"....if I tried to do those pebbles and keep them inside the diamond...well...that just would not happen...they would be tossed over the line!

You are a master...no bones about it.
Smiles,
Kelly

Laura said...

Love it- thank you!

Barbie Mills said...

Excellent tutorial, I love your design. My almost 2-year-old loved the music. =)

Colleen said...

Love it! Thanks.

Sue Schoch said...

Love the tutorial, your voice and the funky music! Thanks for all the sharing you do. Your truly an inspiration!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

That was so fun to watch Judi! Now I know for sure why you do what you do and I don't!

Quilting_Chris said...

Your work is amazing and you make it seem effortless, which I know it is not. Can you share the name of the ruler you were using. That bend in it sure makes it look more comfortable to hold on to. Thank you for sharing your talents.

Wendy said...

Fantastic video! I enjoyed watching you create your diamonds. Your work is always so wonderful. I am so excited about the book, now to just be patient until it mails out.

Leeanne said...

Fun video! I am looking forward to trying this design.....thanks for sharing. I have ordered your book & look forward to reading it cover to cover.

Miriam said...

Wow!!!! You make it look soooo easy!!
I have never thought of using a ruler before.
Thank you for making the video.
Really looking forward to reading your book.

Tammy said...

Wow, Judi, great video. I actually love the music. Your quilting is amazing.

Malen said...

¡GENIAL!Me gusta mucho.Un abrazo.

Rebecca Stevens said...

Beautiful work - thanks for sharing with this video!

Frances said...

I learnt more about long arming in that video than reading any book. Great video. Thanks to Clint for holding that camera!

Kate C said...

Loved it! Great to see you actually doing some of the beautiful things you create...you make it look easy, which it certainly isn't!

Petit Design Co. said...

fantastic visual, music and all! thanks for sharing Judi

paulette said...

FANTASTIC video!! Thanks so much!! I wanted to see how you did the straight lines!! Amazing job!!

Sew Create It - Jane said...

That's was a great video... My husband liked the music... Said it was "longarm style" :-)

Gertie Pye said...

Thank you for a great video tutorial! I think the funky disco music added an extra dimension to it. Very groovy!

CarolT said...

Your video was so much fun to watch. I think you did a great job making it.

Sewing Junkie said...

Getting use to the sequence of stitching the areas with the continuing line is the part I get hung up on. I guess practice practice, but you have it down pat. Video is great. Chris

Linda in TX said...

Loved it loved it loved it! Watching you quilt also taught me to slow down, work on small areas, and dance along with the music. Thanks Judy! This was really valuable to me and I'll be using it. And looking at ALL your tutorials.

The Invisible Woman said...

Thank you so much! Cheesy? No way! I love the fast motion filming through the repetitive parts, the close-ups, your helpful comments, the sound of the machine, and even the music. Beautiful work!

: )

Karen in Breezy Point said...

The video is a lot more professional than a lot of others, for sure! I have a few questions:
what speed do you run your machine on--it seems a lot slower than what I've been doing--maybe that's why my quilting is so bad!
Also, I am curious as to how you get your "up and down" filler to look so nice--do you use your foot to guide you? Just curious! Thanks for the inspiration--can't wait for the book!

sarah in brooklyn said...

It looks easy when you do it! Like Fred Astaire made dancing look easy!

Amanda K said...

wow I love your design. I can't wait to try out a long arm.
AmandaK@whatthebobbin

Patti said...

So much fun to watch a master at work! Thanks for sharing with us.

Diane E W said...

Thanks so much for sharing the video. I could maybe figure out how you made the design but I would have stopped and started so much. Nice to see how you "move" around the design. I hope your book is along this line, some books I have purchased shows a picture but doesn't explain how to accomphish the design. Thank you again. By the way, what kind of ruler are you using? I like the bent part to put your fingers.

Heritage Keepsakes said...

Wow!! Thank you thank you!! Awesome tutorial. Looking forward to a teaching DVD from you in the future.

Carolyn J. said...

Amazing.....thanks for sharing your talent and skill!

BarbaraShowell said...

I started watching just to hear the funky music and then got so interested in how you were working that I almost missed it. Enjoyed it very much.

Elise Lea said...

I loved watching how you did this. It is truly amazing how much work can go into such a small space. You do such beautiful stitching!

Linda in PA said...

Thanks for the video. I love your quilting! Your ruler is different than any I've seen. Who makes it and where can it be purchased?

Margaret said...

you make it look so easy...LOL I'll have to give it a try. Thanks for the video

Jenny's Mom said...

You are absolutely amazing! Can I be you when I grow up? Continue to do what you do, as you are truly an inspiration.

Wine Bottle Art said...

Great work - I've only been working on my longarm for a year and your videos are very inspirational. If I'm able to even come close to duplicating some of your fabulous designs I will certainly give you full credit. If they don't turn out, I won't mention your name. Again, beautiful work.

QuilterBee said...

I LOVE!!! Thank you very much and I WILL be adding your book to my book stash! Amie :-)

QuilterBee said...

And where did you get your ruler?

Helia Ricci said...

Awesome tutorial! Judi, thank you so much for sharing your diamond sashing. You are very generous. I love your quilting. You are very talented.

Carol said...

Excellent tutorial! Thanks so much for taking the time to do this for us. I actually feel like this is something I can do!

Linda R said...

LOVED the tutorial. It makes me want to try something small on my domestic machine. What is the pen that you use, and does it always come off so easily??
Thanks for sharing

Andi said...

Thank you for sharing...very inspiring. My question... I noticed you stitched over one side of the inner diamond twice. Does that make one edge look heavier than the others?

Beema said...

Fabulous! So THRILLED with the video! I hope you will continue putting videos on here about how you actually execute your quilting and how you draw it out etc. So great for me! I am so excited to try it out now! Thank you so SO much! I can't wait to get your book. Mine is already preordered!!

MaterialGirlQuilts said...

Mrs. Goodneedle said...

What a valuable tutorial, I loved watching and learned a LOT; thanks so much for posting this! Oh, by the way, I enjoyed the music too. :)

Tryon said...

You can play whatever music you want for the background-just keep making videos for us!!!

Judith Blinkenberg said...

I had no idea that you did all that pre drawing on your quilts. All one can say is WOW! I want that ruler too.

Josie Dakers-Brathwaite said...

I am a new follower, just starting to FMQ. You do make it look so easy. what marker are you using, and does it all come out as you showed in your video (assuming you remove it immediately)? I look forward to seeing more of your work.

beaquilter said...

Uhhh LOVE this..... I used to just pull the threads over to a new spot to start again then stopped and instead cut and started again, might have to try this again, it's SEW much easier :) what pens do you use? I have a few different ones and a frixion didn't come off on some fabrics. love the spritzer.... gosh I need to use markings and ruler work more...

gramib said...

I have been watching allot of quilting videos lately and yours is by far the best. I will be purchasing your book
