I love making quilt tops, but by the time I get to the quilting, I’m just ready to finish the quilt.  A few weeks ago, I needed some serious quilting inspiration, and there is certainly a lot to be found. The quilting on these quilts is diverse, interesting, and pretty incredible. I think most were done on an everyday home sewing machine, which gives me hope.  I also raided my google docs and included a list of favorite quilting tutorials by others, and feel free to include any tutorials I might have missed in the comments. Happy quilting!

    Also check out . Leah has hundreds of quilting ideas and a video to go with each. I’ve gotten lots of inspiration from her examples. All are done on a home machine too.

    I’ve actually never sent out a quilt to be quilted. I do my own, I just don’t enjoy it. I’m hoping to enjoy it a little more :)

    I love quilting with both straight lines and FMQ on my basic sewing machine. Taking the plunge is so worth it! I will never send my quilt away to be quilted because it’s so much fun! Love your mosaic, by the way :)

    I’m a newbie looking for inspiration

    I started a flickr group a while back for FMQ inspiration that can be done on a home machine. Here’s the link
