Sarah Vedeler

Fons & Porter

If you haven’t been introduce to Sarah Vedeler Designs, allow me.  I met Sarah when we were both in Cleveland OH taping for the 500 series of Quilting Arts TV.  Sarah shows her embroidered quilt blocks which are just amazing!  We had dinner together and through facebook have stayed in contact.  Several months ago Sarah asked me to quilt for her.  I said yes, she sent the quilt.  It’s one of those projects that I couldn’t show because the quilt was going to end up in Fons & Porter.  So if you get Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting look in the November/December issue pages 62/63 for Sarah’s Stars quilt.

Sarah sent Aurifil thread with the quilt because it needed to go with the stars.  I had so much fun quilting this.

The folks at Fons & Porter liked the quilt so much that it will be displayed on one of the shows in the 1100 series I believe.  I’ll let you know when it comes out.

You may have noticed that I took down my lectures/workshops and one other page.  That’s only temporary I need to work out some details and will put the pages back up shortly.

Happy quilting!

  1. Great post Terri! I use my practice pieces to make into postcards 🙂 It’s a great way to upcycle them when they’re not needed anymore 🙂

  2. I’m looking at the Fons & Porter’s magazine as we speak! It’s such a beautiful quilt. I’ve been practicing free motion and would like your opinion on this: I have a Bernina and have found not all threads work on this machine. Would you recommend some brands that work well with Bernina for free motion quilting?

    Thank you!

    1. Diana I’ve found with my Bernina it’s a matter of changing tension & using the right needle for the thread. A heavier thread uses a heavier needle and a lighter thread a finer needle. Reduce the tension and practice.
