We have pleasure in introducing you to Tania of I am Ginger Quilts and her blog. You might like to hop on over to these links to see what Tania has been up to with her quilting. We welcome Tania as a new Janome Artisan who will be working on our lovely JANOME SKYLINE S7 sewing machine. We like Tania’s simple and fresh approach to her quilting. She is a member of the Modern Quilt Guild; loves to draw her quilt designs and then “translate” them into fabric.
We’d like to show you something Tania shared recently with us. They are pic’s of her drawing to design process. Tania tells us: “This was a simple project and so far I have only experimented with straight line stitching (easily achievable on a domestic sewing machine) but will explore more FMQ in the future. I find that people are nervous to jump right in to FMQ so if you show them some simple graphic straight line quilting, it builds their confidence and then they can move into gentle curves and eventually into full FMQ. I have found in speaking with quilters, that they are burdened by the expectation that they can achieve flawless intricate FMQ right off the bat (or batt if you will!)”
We agree with Tania. We find so many people are really scared of Free motion quilting so Tania’s advice and techniques will help put them at ease. We will share more fresh and fun techniques from Tania in future posts.
If you are going to be in Mississauga, Ontario on June 16th, why not come to Quilt Canada 2017 at the International Centre – Tania will be on the Janome booth sharing some of these fun ideas.
