Thursday April 2, 2020 Program: Domestic Machine Ruler Work

Amanda Murphy is a quilt and fabric designer whose style bridges the modern and traditional. She is a BERNINA Quilting and Longarm Spokesperson, national teacher, has a popular independent pattern line, and designs fabric collections for Contempo of Benartex Fabrics and embroidery collections for OESD. She has authored several books for C&T publishing including the best-selling Free-Motion Quilting Idea Book and the new Rulerwork Quilting Idea Book.

Quilting Notebook: Rulerwork
