Machine Quilt A Farm Fresh Quilt with Natalia Bonner


Join machine quilting educator and author Natalia Bonner in this delightful and informative PNQ Academy video, where you'll be inspired by the simple yet intricate art of machine quilting.

In this exclusive PNQ Academy video, Natalia will guide you through the marking and quilting of the enchanting Farm Fresh Embroidery Appliqué quilt. This quilt features a charming blend of embroidered appliqué designs, making it a unique and enjoyable project. Natalia pairs several complementary quilting patterns, which she repeats throughout the quilt for added visual interest. To achieve this, she skillfully uses the versatile Sway & 4-N-1 rulers, adding graceful curves and straight lines to her work.

Watch as Natalia expertly demonstrates the quilting process, using the Sway 4 & Mini 4-N-1 machine quilting rulers along with a long straight-edge ruler. For marking, she relies on her trusty blue Mark-B-Gone marker. All the marking fits within her machine throat space, allowing her to load the quilt and mark as she progresses.

To achieve a lovely texture and loft, Natalia uses one layer of Quilter's Dream Wool batting. She stitches with SoFine! thread, which blends beautifully with the quilt, while a neutral pre-wound SuperBob thread is used in the bobbin for balanced stitching.

Natalia quilts on her Gammill 22" machine in stitch-regulated mode at 13 spi. When using rulers, she emphasizes the importance of applying gentle, even pressure with the extended base and ruler foot for precise and consistent results.

We hope you enjoy following along with Natalia's process. Happy quilting!
