Back to School Blog Hop: Bury Quilt Thread

BTS 16 Teri Lucas

Welcome to the Back to School Blog Hop hosted by Sam Hunter (Hunter’s Design Studio). Thanks Sam! Thirty-two days of tutorials by quilters and sewists, ready to share their experience and tips. At the bottom of the tutorial are links to each of the other participants in the hop. So many great tutorials!

One hundred years ago, when I learned to machine quilt the teacher (Carol Brubaker Martin) taught us many ways to handle thread ends when beginning and ending machine quilting. I settled on, and teach burying the thread ends with a needle and thread. This method gets the thread out of the way so the quilting can progress merrily along. Eventually I will update the PDF on the Tutorials and Helpful Hints page.

bury thread step one start here
Step one, get ready to stitch. Get the quilt under the needle where you want to start quilting.
bury thread step two drop needle
Holding onto the thread, my hands are over there <—-, drop the needle into the quilt.
bury thread step three needle up bring up bobbin
Bring the needle up, and pull on the top thread to pull the bobbin thread to the top of the quilt.
bury thread step four drop needle hold onto thread
Drop the needle back into the same hole. I use the hand wheel for more control.
bury thread step five get started stitching
Get started stitching. Move far enough away from the needle to make room for your hands.
bury thread step six trim thread ends
Clip the thread ends to the same length. This makes the next few steps so much easier.
bury thread step seven thread the needle
I use a Spiral Eye Needle to bury the thread. The opening on the side makes threading quick and easy. Alternately you can use use a quilting needle (size 9 or 10) and a needle threader to thread BOTH threads through the eye. Make a loop of thread, and pull the needle through the loop to make the knot. Alternately wrap the thread around the needle three or four times near the quilt.

 

bury thread step nine heres the knot
Here’s the knot. It’s about one-quarter of an inch away from the quilt. I try to get it about that close so it’s near the quilt, and about that far away so I can easily bury it.
bury thread step ten needle in first hole
Poke the needle into the hole where the thread came from. Wiggle the needle through the batting, this will place the knot IN the batting and out of your way.
bury thread step eleven weave needle through batting
Come up about an inch away from where the thread started.
bury thread step twelve pull through and pop knot
Pull on the thread until the knot goes into the fabric. You may hear a satisfying pop. Unless of course, like me, the music is playing in the background.
bury thread step thirteen clip the thread
Now you’re ready to keep on stitching! Yes, you can stitch over the where you buried the thread! The knot is too small to do any kind of damage, or deflect the needle in any way..
bury thread step fourteen keep quilting
When you’re finished quilting bring the needle up.
bury thread step fifteen needle up pull thread through needle
Grab the top thread and give it a good pull, you’ll need the tail to finish the process.
bury thread step sixteen clip thread and hold onto thread in needle
Clip the thread and hold onto that tail!
bury thread step seventeen drop needle
Drop the needle back down where you took that final stitch.
bury thread step eighteen pull up bobbin thread and clip
While holding onto the thread bring the needle back up. This will pull the bobbin thread up.
bury thread step nineteen heres what the loop looks like
Give the top thread a pull to bring enough of the bobbin thread up to have a tail that you can bury.
bury thread step twenty pull long enough tail
Clip it and…

 

bury thread step twenty one spiral eye needle
Thread the eye of the needle
bury thread step twenty two make quilters knot again loop needle through loop
Make that quilters knot
bury thread step twenty three needle in last thread hole repeat way back
poke the needle in where the thread came up and weave through the batting
bury thread step twenty four pull knot through listen for pop
tug on the thread to hear that pop and pull the knot into the batting
bury thread step twenty five clip threads
Clip the thread and voila! Done.

Now, on the odd chance that the thread didn’t pull back into the quilt put your needle between the batting and the top of the quilt near the thread and sweep the needle. It’ll pull the threads between the layers.

Spring Clean Your Studio Blog Tour Day 1

Spring Clean Your Studio Blog Tour Day 1

18217683_10154868553702663_1383341271_nWelcome to the first top on the Spring Clean Your Studio Blog Hop 2017 hosted by Cheryl Sleboda of Muppin.com.

Well. Well. Well. There is something beautiful about the process of opening the windows, blowing out the stale air, pick the stuff up off the floor of the sewing studio, straighten out the fabric, do something to invigorate the quilting senses. Truth be told I don’t mind a bit of a creative mess, however it’s a bit out of control.

When Cheryl mentioned the blog hop I signed up immediately because:

fabric shelf

oh the spillage! It’s terrible. Years ago a friend showed me how to store fabric for maximum use of space.

line it up
line the folded edge of the yardage
fold it over
fold over the ruler – keeping the folded edge lined up
tuck fabric
tuck the last bit of fabric under

 

pull ruler half way out
pull the ruler half way out, and fold the fabric on the ruler to create a lovely folded edge
stack it up
bonus! more fabric fits in the cubby
stack it up 2
the beauty of the fabric shows
making progress
it’s amazing what a couple of hours does for the look of the shelves

The bonus of tidying up is that I get to pet fabric, see what I have, see what still speaks to my quilt heart, and if I want to let anything go. All of it still speaks to my heart. With several pieces I could see whole cloth quilts. My gut says a few of these will happen. One surprised me, deeply surprised me because I don’t do repeats on quilts. But that’s a post for another day.

And here are the blogs for the next 21 days. That’s right 3+ weeks of Spring Clean Your Studio, please visit each blogger on their day. See more studios, meet some cool people, be inspired. #springcleanyourstudio

BERNINA Ambassador Blog Tour It’s a Wrap

BERNINA Ambassador Blog Tour It’s a Wrap

WASAmbassadorIcon_205x205 (1)It’s a wrap! The BERNINA Ambassador Blog tour is complete. Getting to know more about the people you work with is always a good idea. So here’s a quote from each one:

From Cherry Guidry: I took my first quilting class summer of 2004 and wanted to learn to applique, but my sewing machine didn’t feature the right stitches suggested for the technique, so I needed a new sewing machine! I bought one that didn’t work as hoped, so on my way back from returning it, spotted the BERNINA dealer and you can just imagine what happened next… I brought home a sweet Activa 220… well, today I am so blessed to sew with the awesome B880

Jenelle Montilone: The universe sends us the greatest gifts- and being a part of the BERNINA family has truly been one of them. I am lucky to work alongside and learn from some of the most talented men and women in this industry. I’ve shared intimately what it means to me to be a brand ambassador for BERNINA.  While that original post was written more than 2 years ago- it is still true today.

Catherine Redford: It wouldn’t take very long at all to realize that having the right tool and materials for the job is very important to me. I like first quality fabric, thread, needles… you name it and I probably have it… or really want it! So no surprise at all that I sew on a BERNINA machine (or two).

ambassadors

Kari Carr: Basically, it’s the most common-sense method of trimming and creating half-square triangles there is. Like it says; One Alignments, Two Cuts and you trim all four sides of your block. The exclusive edge slots allow you to remove the dog ears at the same time. Simple, but effective….at least that’s what I’m hearing in the reviews. It’s also the perfect companion to the popular notion, Clearly Perfect Angles (an Amazon “Best Seller”).

Lori Kennedy: There has been a lot of excitement at The Inbox Jaunt lately, because a collection of the Tuesday Tutorials (along with Skill Building Exercises and more) was just published by Martingale!

Annie Smith: Gran gave a sewing machine to my sister and me for Christmas when we were in high school. It was the only thing that we could mutually share and get along with. We had a calendar on the wall in the laundry room, where our Dad set up a desk for us to sew. We scheduled our “week to sew”– one week on, one week off. We made all of our clothes (except Levi jeans – who could improve on perfection?), including prom dresses. I made clothes on the weekends, wore them to school and took orders from my school mates. Repeat. Soon I was making clothes for their moms and my hairdresser’s girlfriend. It was a pretty cool way to support myself through school, doing something I loved to do.

Cheryl Sleboda: Whether it’s heirloom dimensional fabric manipulations like smocking, pleating, or tucking, or cutting edge technology like LEDs, microprocessors, or circuitry, my work combines design and innovation for unique fabric art.

Beth Ferrier: That I needed a new sewing machine was clear. Instead of bringing me joy, I fought with and cried over that stupid Kenmore, the one that I’d paid good money for (more than $200 in 1990, a lot for the time) and expected so much from. Sewing was my haven from the insanity of raising four hyper boys, my quilts were the only thing I did that stayed done.

at play greg case

Sandy Fitzpatrick: It didn’t take long for me to realize that I enjoyed creating my own appliqué patterns. When friends started asking me to create patterns of my designs, I realized that perhaps I could turn my fun little hobby into a business, and Hissyfitz Designs became a reality.

Mandy Leins: I was taking one of those quizzes the other day that promises to tell you *all about* yourself using on colors/appealing pictures/cat photos and the like, and I realized I already had a pretty good idea of what it would tell me: I love to learn, I love to find human connections in everything, and I love to share. I’m never happier than when all of these things combine. Making things with the work of our hands is a deep part of what defines the human experience, from our earliest origins. We have always found and made meaning in the material objects of our lives, adding art to our craft.

Christa Watson: In fact I have a funny story to tell about mothers and daughters quilting. Although my daughter made a quilt when she was about 8 years old, she has since decided to pursue other creative interests like writing and drawing. She was 12 when I was writing the book with Angela. When she learned that Angela had written a book with her daughter, she came up to me and said, “Mom – is it okay that I don’t want to write a book with you?” I answered, “Of course! Most quilting moms DON’T write actually write books with their daughters, so that’s perfectly fine!”

A post shared by Teri Lucas (@terilucas) on

Kathy Delaney: I will admit to being a frustrated machine quilter.  Well, I can’t even call myself a machine quilter, just frustrated.  I can’t recall how many machine quilting workshops I’ve taken, trying to master this technique, but it has been many.  I feel like I know the mechanics very well and I have even been known to machine quilt a project or two using my BERNINA #50 Walking Foot, but I have never felt like I could call myself a Machine Quilter.

Melody Crust: Don’t stress with the process, remember to breath! I like the look of lines that aren’t perfect. I do try to keep them from looking too messy. Depending on how densely you quilt it can be time quite consuming (take breaks! You don’t have to finish quilting all at one time!). The end results are wonderful. Have fun playing with straight lines!

Diane Doran: When I think back over all the years I’ve been sewing, and then quilting, the word “magic” keeps popping into my head. That’s how I think of sewing; as a form of everyday magic.

Kelly Ashton: We are all multi-faceted individuals, and there are many words that help to describe who we are.  Some words that will give you a glimpse into who I am:  woman, mother, daughter, wife, friend, Nana.  A few others:  Quirky.  Simple and complex Loyal.  Compassionate.  Curious.  Stubborn (sometimes).  Independent (always).

Lynn Harris: My parents bought me my first sewing machine, a portable singer, back when I was in high school. Years later, in 1989, my husband surprised me on my birthday with a BERNINA 1230. He even called my boss and arranged for me to have the day off of work  so I could stay home and sew on the brand new machine!  To this day it’s one of the best and most used gifts I’ve ever gotten and speaks to how well he knows me.

Joanne SharpeMY FIRST BERNINA:  My first BERNINA machine is a B350 that I purchased while teaching at an art retreat in California in 2011.   I live in upstate NY.  I wasn’t leaving without my new treasure, my machine, so I took all my clothes from my suitcase and packed them in the BERNINA box and shipped them home.  My new BERNINA “baby” went with me on the plane instead, fitting perfectly inside my extended carry-on.  But the bad was just a tad too wide for the over head, so the flight attendant graciously placed it in the captain’s closet for the trip home.  My machine was already a spoiled child, nice ride!

And please remember to visit the Lectures and Workshops Page. My big adventure later this year is being the featured quilter at the Dutchess Heritage Quilt Show. I’m available to come speak at your quilt, host a workshop or a retreat. Comment here if you’d like me to send you a quilted card.

BERNINA Ambassador Blog Tour Day 5

BERNINA Ambassador Blog Tour Day 5

Our final three Ambassadors Joanne Sharpe, Cherry Guidry, and Jenelle Montilone. Joanne is a wordsmith extraordinaire, she plays with words, fonts to be more specific. Incorporating words into art with tools including her quilting. Cherry’s patterns include embroidery, gorgeous machine embroidery adding one more texture and layer to all that she does. Jenelle is our upcycling, and recycling specialist moving in the garment world with t-shirts embellished with trucks, t-shirt quilts, and reusable produce bags.

This whole week inspired me, to look at things in a new way, to tell the quilt-story in a new way.

When Alex Anderson, a BERNINA Ambassador, turned 50 I made, and sent her a birthday card. Making small “mail art” types of quilts is fun, they’re great practice pieces, and bring great joy. So here’s what I’m going to give away: a 4″ by 6″ quilted birthday card. You get to choose the background color, I’ll take care of the rest. Post a comment on THIS blog by Monday March 27. Because of shipping I must, unfortunately, limit this to the United States.

When you comment let me know your favorite colors! I’ve enjoyed such a great discussion on facebook that I throught we’d have a little bit of fun.

I’ll draw a name using the random number generator on Wednesday March 29th.

In the meantime visit the Ambassador websites. Pass our information onto your guild program chairs, or shop owners, we’re all ready to come share our love for quilting or sewing with you.

BERNINA Ambassador Blog Tour Day 4

Today we bring you four BERNINA Ambassadors: Annie Smith, Lori Kennedy, Kari Carr and Catherine Redford who bring a wide variety of style to the quilting world. Annie is the original (and still my favorite) quilting podcaster; Lori just published a new book (more on that in a moment); Kari has a great angle on quilting, Clearly Perfect; and Catherine approaches quilt making with a modern flair.

Becoming BERNINA Ambassador is in 2013 one of the highlights of my work as a quilter. To say I longed for this would be an understatement, and worked hard to achieve this goal. Well, part of it was achieving this goal, part of this as developing my career as a free motion machine quilting teacher, with something of an art-y bent. Having a quilting career takes a lot of hard work, day by day, stitch by stitch, word by word. Making what I hope are the right choices to keep me doing what I love. Teaching and helping quilters grow in their own confidence.Growing in confidence as a quilter takes a lot of work.

Reviewing books, and hosting blog tours are part in parcel with my work as Blogger-in-Chief and Community Editor for Generation Q Magazine. Seeing people I’ve known for a while achieve success in writing, in getting the words and experiences from their head to the page thrills the soul. Often it is in reading the Intro where I find blog the words for the blog post. Lori mentions in her book Free-Motion Machine Quilting 1-2-3 of the influence of Diane Gaudinski in her own work as a quilter. Diane is one of those quilters who influenced a lot of us of a certain quilterly age and by that I mean how long we’ve been quilters rather than our chronological age. The cool thing is that while Lori and I have both been influenced by Diane our quilterly paths are incredibly different. Like Diane, Lori is orderly and organized; I, on the other hand, not so much. Lori’s book is great for building skill, thinking through the stitching path, and chock full of motifs that will carry any quilter for years to come. Good work Lori!

And now it’s time for a quick visit to the other Ambassadors. Oh have fun with them. PS tomorrow I am going to post a give away, so stay tuned.

BERNINA Ambassador Blog Tour Day 3

BERNINA Ambassador Blog Tour Day 3

Sandy Fitzpatrick, Beth Ferrier, and Cheryl Sleboda are today’s featured BERNINA Ambassadors. Please don’t tell Beth but I’ve wanted to be her for a long time. Not her really but she’s been part of my quilting life for as long as I can remember.  Cheryl has become a friend, and mentor listening, sharing, offering advice as I approach some new things in my quilting life. Sandy has stylized appliqué patterns that are so fun, bringing delight to the maker, and viewer.

A few years ago a friend and I participated in an online art class. Part of the fun was learning about different styles of art. How a new style will be considered “outsider” art, until it’s accepted by the general community as something worthy of owning. During the course we made different kinds of art, including mail art.  Thinking of art reminded me of my uncle Bill Harris, who worked for the Boothbay Register, and created lots of art. (Art runs deep in our family.) The author references my uncle’s successful sale of powdered (freeze-dried) Maine Seagull Poop. This story is legendary and once appeared in Readers Digest. One of us has photos of the chalk board art he did for a local bakery every day on his way to work. This gift of art lives on.

I’ve started working on The Moon is Made of Cheese, Cheddar Cheese.

For now, let’s enjoy the quilters of the day: Cheryl, Beth, and Sandy.

BERNINA Ambassador Blog Tour Day 2

BERNINA Ambassador Blog Tour Day 2

And now we get to meet Ambassadors: Kathy Delany, Christa Watson, and Mandy Leins. The cool thing is that each Ambassador brings something different, a different skill set, a range of style, and idea. Each Ambassador is influenced by something different from a sense of quilting history, an abounding enthusiasm for the modern style of machine quilting, to a fresh look at ancient architecture.

hyacinth bloomsAs I write it is the first day of spring. Spring. Our hyacinths bloomed, and are currently buried under so much snow. Thankfully, the days are warming, the snow is melting, and the flora beneath the aforementioned snow will bloom again. Color influences so greatly all that I do. This color will make it into the next quilt in my head. Tomorrow I’m showing you a sneak peek of the current quilt. Oh good golly I’m tickled about how it’s coming along. Surprising myself I drew in the moon shape freehand, then drew in linked circles across the surface. I’ll have photos for tomorrow’s blog post.
