It was so great to catch up with so many of my Quilty Facebook friends as well as all the stall holders that I only get to see on the show circuit.
One of my favourite stands is always the Handi Quilter and Husqvarna Viking stands. I love catching up with Narelle and the girls and getting lots of new ideas to share with you.
This placemat is made by Narelle from Handi Quilter. She is such a lovely person and I always learn so much just from having a chat with her. This placemat was made entirely on the Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen! Yes even the piecing!
The appliqué was fused onto the background and then raw edge quilted. Even the blanket stitch was done on the Sweet!
I think this flower was my favourite. How cute is it!!
You can do so much with the Sweet Sixteen, I even learnt how to baste a quilt, I will be sharing that technique with you soon, so make sure you subscribe to the YouTube channel for more videos.
This was my other favourite thing that I learned at the Handi Quilter Stand! This is the brand new Yarn Couching foot. Helen Godden was on the stand and she was showing us how to use this new foot. This small quilt is just so so cute! Yarn couching is a ridiculous amount of fun!
A ball of yarn and few appliqué shapes and look at this gorgeous little wallhanging! It would look so cute on my girls bedroom wall.
Some more Yarn Couching Eye Candy!
And the gorgeous Helen Godden, she cracks me up!!
Today, I am so excited to share with you a video I recorded with Helen Godden. She is one amazing quilter and a lovely, funny and cheeky lady.
I asked her to share with us how she quilts with the new yarn couching foot on the HQ Sweet Sixteen.
I hope you enjoy :)
PS. I am so excited to have one of Helen's Free Motion Quilting DVDs to give away to one lucky reader this weekend, so make sure you check back on Sunday for that and a new HQ Sweet Sixteen Sunday video tutorial!
