Where Did the Idea for Queen of Stitching Come From?
Did you ever go to a quilt exhibition, peruse a online quilt gallery or sit through Show and Tell at your favorite quilt guild? If you have - you will know that the one constant among quilt makers through the ages has been their overwhelming inability to produce squared quilts.
A perfectionist at heart, I want my finished quilts to be as perfect as the thought, design and love that I put into into creating them. Yet as a quilt maker, I know how hard one can try to make a perfectly squared quilt and still miss by miles.
In order to make squared, flat quilts I understood that you must begin with squared and flat blocks.
Sadly, me, my sewing machine, my iron and all of the quilt paraphernalia that I have amassed over the years - could not consistently make squared or flat blocks - no matter how hard I tried.
Queen of Stitching blocks are my solution to this timeless problem. They are always precisely pieced, have perfect points and are fully quilted when I remove them from my embroidery hoop. I can't stretch my fabric because I ironed instead of pressed. All blocks finish square and lie flat. And the newest innovations for joining quilt blocks in the hoop is unequaled in the quilting world!
