We had the pleasure of hosting Pauline and her daughter Joey from Pauline’s Quilters World this month. They came to demonstrate some of their fabulous tools as well as quilt as you go and free motion quilting techniques. Pauline’s Quilters World is an online store selling patterns, tools & notions for quilters worldwide. They have many and varied youtube videos showing their great products and unique techniques and is definitely worth a look.
Pauline is the inventor of the original Sasher Tool which helps make stunning sashings for Quilt As You Go quilts and so much more such as:
- very fine bias strips for applique and Celtic designs
- peepers to highlight sashings
- sashings with corner stones
- bias strips for stems
- double fold binding to bind quilts
You can see more of how to use the Sasher Tools here with Pauline.
We also have these great tools available here as a set of 10. Including sizes: 1/8″, 1/4″, 1/2″, 3/4″, 1″, 1 1/8″, 1 1/4″, 1 1/2″, 2″ and 2 1/2″ wide.
Pauline is famous for her Quilt As You Go methods and she brought along some of her quilts and talked about her techniques. Patterns are available for some of the quilts shown below (click on the image to go directly to the pattern available).
Pauline demonstrated her method of free motion quilting using her templates and sewing with the feed dogs in the up position and regular sewing foot attached instead of a free motion quilting foot, making it a simpler technique for those who struggle with traditional free motion quilting.
It was absolutely lovely having both Pauline and Joey here at Kimz, bringing along their products and demonstrating just how many different ways there are to quilt as you go.
We know our ladies that came along for the demonstration got so much out of the morning. There has been many comments about how fantastic the event was and lots of questions about when Pauline is coming back. As soon as we can lock in a date for a workshop with Pauline we will announce it through our newsletter.
We have an amazing range of their products available including the very popular Quilt As You Go Handbook. There are so many fresh ideas in the book including layered and pinked sashing, sewing machine tension plus plenty of tips to help you along your quilt as you go projects.
Special thanks to Pauline and Joey for their time coming to Kimz and we look forward to seeing them both back again soon.
