Circuitboard Quilting on Domestic & Longarm

Welcome to both long term blog followers any any new visitors that might be following along with the Back to School Block Hop for 2017. If you are new here, my name is Yvonne Fuchs and I have a love for quilt design, the quilting community, and blogging. I hope you enjoy my video tutorial today on Circuitboard Quilting, and if you like what you see, you might want to check out some of my other Tutorials, Quilt Gallery, Quilt Patterns, or just subscribe and follow along!

Earlier this year, inspired by the name of the quilt I was working on (Digital Wave) and my penchant for straight line quilting, my husband challenged me to created a “circuitboard quilting” motif. It was the perfect inspiration and I had a lot of fun moving around the quilt. An extra bonus is the texture that it gives the finished quilt!

Today, I am really excited to share a video I created to discuss how to approach creating your own version of circuitboard quilting, whether you quilt on your domestic or on a longarm.

I hope the video inspires you to give Circuitboard Quilting a try; I’d love to see how you incorporate it into your own projects!

Don’t miss out on the rest of the awesome Back to School Blog Hop line-up for 2017:

    Many thanks for sharing. Although I quilt on a domestic, I love watching longarmer quilting. Maybe someday I’ll be able to afford one! Your husband is an enabler in the best way! Your quilt is gorgeous!

    Great video, Yvonne! I love that quilting motif and was pleased to see you show us how to achieve it on a domestic machine as well as a long arm. Thank you!

    Great quilting motif I’ll have to give it a try.

    Wonderful tutorial Yvonne! Thank you so much – I’m going to try this on one of my quilt tops for sure. I just love the texture of it.

  6. Such an awesome video! I loved how you showed how to quilt the design on both the domestic and longarm machine. Your intro with your logo was so cool, did you make that?

    Enjoyed the video and really like the design idea – thanks for sharing!

  8. Yvonne, thanks for sharing! Thanks for the reminder to always draw out the design first! I picked up some great tips!

  9. That’s a great idea and a wonderful tutorial. Thank you, Yvonne!

  10. What a creative quilting design! I’ve done something similar, but not with as many changes in direction. Sure like this one. Is it your own design idea and name? If I share it with anyone, I want to be sure to give proper credit. You know though, the BEST tip was using the thread tail to bring up the bobbin thread! Gosh! I never thought of that one. 🙂 Thank you! Now I’m off to give this a go on my own fq sample. Thanks, Yvonne!

  11. This is a wonderful video, Yvonne! I am going to go doodle this so I’m ready for when I find the right project for it. Although, I will admit that if I got stuck I would be more likely to cross over lines already quilted than to tie off.

    Great video! I never thought to adjust my needle speed while FMQing. Love the circuit board design.

    Thanks, Yvonne, for this video on circuit board quilting. I’ll have to remember to use the free motion quilting foot instead of my walking foot. It certainly would have made my current quilt project easier. I’ve never seen the way you use your quilt thread tail to bring up the bobbin thread. I will have to try and incorporate that into my toolbox of tricks.

  14. The texture of your circuit board quilting is amazing! I want to try it out.

  15. I was just reading about this pattern in the magazine. It’s awesome. Thanks for the video…interesting quilting motif.

  16. Thank you for sharing this tutorial. The texture on your quilt is amazing. 🙂

  17. Kate says:

    Such a cool quilting motif. It does add great texture. Thanks for sharing all the steps.

    Thank you for the tutorial. My problem with quilting like this is that I turn too fast and I don’t have a corner, but a curve. I guess I have to practice more.

  19. What a clever idea for a motif. It suits the modern, minimalism of your quilts well.

  20. Great tutorial, Yvonne! How is it I never thought to adjust the speed of my needle? This might just be the perfect quilting design for the quilt I’m working on now 🙂

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
