I started quilting a feathers today on batik red and a solid red fabric knowing every stitch would show. I wanted more control then I was getting. I considered using a ruler to get a perfect spine for my feathers, but then I have to use a hopping foot, and I can,t see as well when I’m doing the actual feathers.
When I bought my longarm I was given a couple of rice bags which is something Sharon Schambler recommended for more control. So today I decided to give it a try. I laid the rice bags near where I was quilting, and was pleasantly surprised to have great control. This may be my new favorite tool!

I love everything about quilting. I love the colors, the feel of the fabrics, the piecing, the quilting , and even putting on the binding! I free motion quilt using a Bernina 780, longarm quilt (free motion or ruler work), on a Prodigy , and hand quilt when I get a chance.
I have been teaching quilting since 2004, and became a Certified Studio 180 Design Instructor in 2013. In 2020 I became an Island Batik Ambassador, and an Island Batik Designer in 2021. I teach locally at Bernina Connection, in Tallahassee, and travel to guilds and shops to share my love of quilting through a trunk show or workshops, and I also vend at several Quilt Shows in the area.
