Series Credits: The sewing machine for the series is the Baby Lock Crescendo. For piecing, we use the ¼″ quilting presser foot or the monogramming presser foot. We use basic sewing supplies such as fabric, rotary cutters, and scissors. We wear a Klutz cut-resistant safety glove when rotary cutting, press with a Reliable iron, and measure using Omnigrid, and Fons & Porter rulers. Patterns and instructions for quilts featured are in Love of Quilting magazine or as listed on our website. We have Love of Quilting DVDs available for our TV shows, beginning with the 400 series, available in our online shop.
