Mama Gypsy Quilt Along with FREE collectors pin!

Mama Gypsy by Judi Madsen
I have some fun planned for a Quilt Along making my Mama Gypsy Quilt. If you remember my first quilt, it was made with a white background and dark focal pieces.  This quilt has taken on a whole new look with a dark background and bright border, I absolutely love it!

Black and White picture challenge and my adventures in Paducah...

Judi Madsen using the A1 Elite Longarm 
I thought it would be fun to do my own black and white picture challenge for this post. It really has been so hard to keep up blogging and I miss it. Seems like Instagram and Facebook is where I hang out most of the time now. Anyway - I just went to Paducah for QuiltWeek and had a wonderful time teaching 6 sold out classes. I am always so honored to be with so many quilters - it really makes my...

All New Patterns!!!

I am so excited to share with you 2 new quilt patterns!  These 2 designs have been in the works for a while, ever since Gypsy was first designed. The first one, Mama Gypsyis a fabulous quilt. This design takes the Gypsy block and makes it the focal point of the quilt. I used yardage for this particular quilt, but it could easily be a stash buster/fat quarter quilt. The large pieces could also be...

All New Ruler! The QuickMarkAssist! Available for PRE-ORDER

Hi Everyone!  I am excited to share with you my QuickMarkAssist Ruler which is designed to compliment - or assist, the QuickMarkRuler.  The difference between this ruler and the QuickMark ruler is that there are 1/2" cut outs, the ruler is 6 1/2" x 12 1/2" x 1/8" - so it is for marking only. It is not to be used with the quilting, but will help you tremendously when you are marking your quilts....

Ticky Tack revealed!!

Okay, so I am happy to finally reveal my Ticky Tackquilt - another custom printed panel design that was designed and quilted by me. This was the first time for me using a printed panel for custom quilting and the fabric is 100% polyester, so it has a new feel for me. The fabric has a soft feel to it and because it is printed on a tight weave fabric, I needed to use a smaller needle (90/14) while...

Patchwork Pineapple - NEW pattern!

Patchwork Pineapple by Judi Madsen 
I am so thrilled to finally share what I have been working on for the last several months.  I have wanted to make a pineapple quilt forever. I drew one up at the beginning of the year and made that design up into a quilt, but - it didn't look good, or work right for what I wanted. So, I started over and decided on the design, Patchwork Pineapple, that you see now. This is such a fun quilt to put...
