The Sewing Community Has Lost a Great Teacher We are devastated to announce that Louis Carney passed away suddenly in Atlanta. Born in Kansas City, sewing since he was 12, Louis earned a B.A. in fashion design and headed to New York City. Everywhere he went, his larger-than-life personality made him friends. No one who knew him will ever forget him. His teaching touched so many lives. He will be sorely missed. We will be replaying tutorials in his honor.

Custom quilting enhances specific areas of a quilt such as blocks, sashing and borders using multiple designs, whereas edge to edge or allover quilting repeats the same design. This technique accents embroidered and appliqued elements while filling the surrounding shapes with beautiful, quilted texture. Custom quilting is what stops you in your tracks at quilt shows.

You will learn how to
1. Select quilt designs for your quilt top
2. Create cohesive design elements
3. Highlight embroidery
4. Accentuate applique
5. Emphasize patchwork
6. Embellish crazy quilt blocks
7. Mix modern quilting with traditional blocks
… and much more!
