Yesterday was another fun and exciting day being able to host a LIVE with Janome! event. These are truly one of my favorite things to do. It always amazes me when we start to hear how there are fabulous quilters and sewist joining me from all over the world. When I say it’s an honor to have them take the hour out of their day to join me and hear me talk about what I love, I very much mean it.
On the lesson for the Janome Lone Star quilt, I gave out my best tips and tricks for getting those points lined up beautifully. We also chatted about fabrics to make the ombre effect for the star, finishing up the blocks without needing to do a Y-seam and laughing about the obnoxious Brood X Cicadas swarming around our house these days.
The LIVE with Janome events are always recorded and can be found on the Janome Sewing Machines Facebook page. Artisans, Educators, and Makers are on multiple times a week to share their fun crafts, techniques, and unique projects. Whether you are a new sewist or have been behind a sewing machine all your life, there is always something new to learn.
I love being part of this fabulous Janome team, and love being able to share the patterns and knowledge I have with anyone who wants to see what’s going on under my needle.

Oh and I should note that since the husband does a fabulous job of always keeping fresh flowers in my studio, he knocked it out of the park yesterday with yellow roses. He said I’m his Yellow Rose of Texas! 🙂
Question please, just caught the video for this Quilt on the Janome FB page and I love it! This is using 45° diamonds can it be done with 60° diamonds? Still trying to work out when you use which! Many thanks Nicola UK
The pattern was designed for the 45 diamonds. In order to switch to the 60 I would imagine there would be quite a bit of rework needed for the background.
