Fast and Free! Volume 3 is here!!!!

We have been working on this edition of Fast and Free for several months and I am happy to say it is now available! This edition is SO comprehensive that we couldn’t fit all this information into 1 DVD, so volume 3 is a 2-disc set with a total play time of 4 hours and 4 minutes! Filled with many new families of beautiful designs, this edition also has a detailed chapter on how to manage a large quilt on a home domestic sewing machine, a chapter on how to decide which quilting designs to use in different places on your quilt, and a chapter on hyperquilting background fill designs! But, the best part is this $59.95 value 2-disc set is priced at only $49.95! We are living in tough economic times and wanted to give all our quilting friends a break! Here’s a snapshot of some of the designs covered in this dvd: (Truthfully, there are so many designs that I’ve left out some pictures here):
-The Rotating Axis Family, where a design is created by rotating a design element around a central axis point:

And the Revolving Axis Family, where a design element revolves around another design element:

And the chapter on Improvisational Quilting, where you learn how to morph a design into a size block on your quilt top:

And here are a couple from the Loosey-Goosey Revolving Axis Family:

And in the next chapter, I show you how to do McTavishing…My Way!

And then we look at the Circling the Element Family:

And then we learn the fun of hyperquilting background fill deisgns:

And after that, we move to a chapter where I share all my secrets for free motion quilting a huge quilt on a home domestic sewing machine! We start at the center of this quilt and work our way out to the edges:

And then we move to a chapter where we review how I make design decisions about which quilting designs to use in different parts of quilts. I’ve gotten so many emails from folks who really struggle with these decisions, so I’m hoping my guidelines will help take the mystery out of this process!

And after that…I can’t tell you, because it’s a secret! I guess you’ll just have to watch the DVD to find out!

Check out our preview video clip to get another view of what’s covered on this DVD and don’t forget to download all the free line drawings (43 of them to be exact!)so you’ll have a road map as you learn these new designs! This DVD may be our most fun edition yet, so don’t miss out on the fun!

    Wow Patsy. WOW!

    I think I’ll ask for this DVD for Christmas! It sounds like a real treat!


  5. Miss Snips Says:

    I never feel quite right about letting someone else quilt my quilt, so I try to do them all myself, I am so glad you have done all this design work for me, and as soon as my credit card can handle it, I will be sending for a copy of you DVD… In the meantime, I have put a link to your site, on my blog, so I hope a few more take the plunge of machine quilting their own projects…

  6. Gerry Says:

    I just learned of your site and I am soooo inspired! I’m asking for your video for Christmas! I do all my own quilting on a Viking #1, and am working hard on learning to do feathers.
    Thank you for being so generous with your free patterns.
