Since 2018 I've done Facebook Live tutorials as part of marketing for an awesome company called Quilted Works. These are the tutorial outtakes that you'll find helpful for your crafting and quilting life.

Drop by often. We update this page frequently from top down.

I was asked by my local quilt guild to present my favorite quilting tools. I work part-time in a quilt shop so I'm exposed to all kinds of tools and gizmos. Because I'm an active and avid quilter, I use these particular tools. There's obviously a need as I posted the presentation on YouTube and it went to over 32,000 views in less than 3 weeks. Do yourself a favor and learn some tools that will make your quilting life more efficient and enjoyable.

This tutorial was made specifically for YouTube. It shows how to quickly and easily make multiple size diagonal hearts with chainpiecing. If you're into efficiency, let this tutorial give you some ideas. You'll be glad you watched.

The fastest, easiest, awesomest quilt binding tool I've ever found. I put this tutorial up here because when I presented my favorite tools to my local quilt guild, they actually cheered and clapped for this particular tool. There's obviously a high demand for this tool.

Part 1 of 2. Paper piecing is one of the most accurate techniques for quilt piecing. You are guaranteed not to cut off your points. In this first video we put together the four components of the star block.                                              

Part 2 of 2. How to make a beautiful paper pieced star. Here's where we put the entire star block together. Paper piecing is one of the most accurate ways of quilting available. Give it a try. I'm sure you'll enjoy this star block.

Square up any block, whether it's angular, circular or even applique. By understanding the Pop Ruler design and purpose, it will make your quilting life easier by far. Be a square in all your quilting magic.

Part 3. This is where we put on the final decorations for our Improv Trees. This tutorial is especially helpful for those who make booboos, because I made one and teach how to correct it.       

Just in time for Christmas, here's a great little improv block you can use for a quilt, table runner, or whatever you can imagine. Create your own little forest of trees from your fabric stash.       

Let's embellish some trees. I selected 2 sets of the Improv Trees and will be making a wall hanging. I explain how you can embellish your trees with decorative stitches.                   

There are many ways to make a Flying Geese Block, but this is my favorite! Take the stress out of all the math and memory required for most flying geese techniques. Keep the beak on the goose! No more cut off points.      

This is one of the most important things you will ever learn about maintaining and cleaning your sewing machine. A well-maintained machine will sew smoothly and accurately.                                                            

I show you how to make a beautiful and useful hot pad quickly and easily using pre-cut layer cakes or 10" squares. Make one for every holiday to add creative flair to your meals. These make great gifts.                    

Learning how to make FSL or Free Standing Lace is a fun project and there are so many incredible designs to choose from. This is one of the most pretty and creative techniques for your embroidery sewing machine.

Binding quilts can be time-consuming and tedious. The Binding Eaze product makes this task a whole lot easier. Binding takes minutes to press instead of long minutes at the ironing board and burning your fingers.

I demonstrate the beauty of using a laser-cut kit for your machine applique. I am using a Pfaff Expression 720. I love the needle-down, presser foot lift function and the open-toe applique foot.
