Welcome to Heather Hopkins Quilts…..

I have started this blog to share with you my quilting knowledge and crazy quilting adventures. I teach a lot of free motion quilting classes, mostly in Adelaide (South Australia), but I am being invited more to teach in other locations around the country.

I enjoy the feeling of freedom with freemotion quilting, you will notice 90% of my quilts are whole cloth or very minimal piecing, I just want to get on to the quilting part ASAP!!
I do run a quilting service on the longarm out of the Adelaide Sewing Centre store, so if you have a quilt that needs finishing I can certainly help you with that.

The Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen sit down machine & the Handi Quilter Infinity 26″longarm with ProStitcher are my quilting machines of choice. I use the longarm with both ProSticher (computer operated) but I also love to use her hand guided (freehand). I do feel I favour the Sweet Sixteen sitdown more for my own personal quilting, I just love the feeling of the fabric and the movement of the quilting.

This blog page will  be a great resource for my Handi Quilter Group Members to keep up to date with tips & techniques as well as the challenges I set for them,  feel free to quilt along here with them. Most of the  projects & challenge techniques can be transferred to a domestic sewing machine.

Happy Quilting,
