Quiltmaker has declared 2014 as The Year of Machine Quilting. You’ve told us you need help to improve your machine quilting. Most questions come in two forms:
- How to machine quilt
- What to machine quilt
We have started a series of machine quilting Chapters on our Machine Quilting page. You’ll find two helpful chapters so far:
They’ll help you get started right away so you can finish your UFOs, practice and improve, and be proud of your machine quilting skills. I’m working on Lesson 3 right now.
We’ve added light-hearted features too!
You can grab one of our status buttons to post on your own blog, Facebook page, Pinterest or wherever you’d like to share it.
We have nine free bonus quilt designs—great ideas for how to machine quilt your projects! Each one is a downloadable pdf with instructions for how to quilt that design. They make great practice exercises, too.
The Lessons in every regular issue of Quiltmaker also show quilting designs. Be sure to read each lesson from Natalia Bonner, machine quilter extraordinaire in the Year of Machine Quilting section of the magazine.

We’ve partnered with Handi Quilter to bring you a regular Motif of the Month. No charge for this either—find a great new quilting design around the beginning of each month. July’s motif is Priscilla’s Rainbow. Get it while it lasts.
And if you’re in the market for quilting designs, please consider 501 Quilting Motifs from the editors of Quiltmaker.
This popular book title is showing up in quilt shops worldwide and with good reason: It’s a fabulous resource people return to many times over. Shop locally or check out print and digital options from Quiltmaker.
If you have questions about machine quilting or suggestions for future machine quilting topics, send them to email@example.com. We’ll do our best to answer questions in upcoming lessons and blog posts.
