Fabulous Feet, a Fun Quilt Class with Lynda Howell

When I bought my new sewing machine many years ago, several different sewing machine feet were included. And, yes, basic instructions were included  for how to use them. But I didn’t take the time to learn about them or how to incorporate decorative stitches into my quilts and other projects.

Lynda Howell, the designer behind the popular Stitch Connection patterns, has taken all the guesswork out of these feet and has created amazing designs with them. Her Snuggle Sampler was featured in 2 parts in Quiltmaker—part 1 in May/June ’10 (available as a digital issue only) and part 2 in July/August ’10 (digital issue only). Many different feet were used to create this adorable crib quilt.

Lynda will be teaching at QM‘s Block Party in Williamsburg, VA August 2-4, ’12. She will be teaching a fun class using specialty feet on your sewing machine to add decorative stitches to your projects. You will learn about bobbin work, couching and using decorative stitches for applique and more as you create Isabelle, a fusible snow lady, or fabulous flowers for a wall quilt or pillow.

    I would really like to buy the pattern Stitcher’s Garden by Lynda Howell. I am not able to join a block of the month and don’t want to purchase a kit-just the pattern.
    If you could help, I’d appreciate it. Thank you Diane

    I did the baby quilt for our latest great grand daughter… didn’t do it exactly as the pattern, but pretty darned close. I loved it so much that I may have to make another one. :)

  4. Cute projects! If I lived on the east coast, I’d be there. ;-)

    I love these projects, especially the snowgirl. I would love to go to the Quiltmaker’s Block Party. Guess I’ll have to see if there’s some way to work it out.
