Meet Becky Everett, the CEO of  Doodlemoochie Quilt & Design Studio! We have had the pleasuring of knowing Becky for some quite some time. She has been a dedicated Quilters Dream customer for years and LOVES quilting on her Gammill. It was through her Instagram account- @doodlemoochie, where we really got to see her talent. We are always SO eager to see her new masterpiece when we get notifications on our phones that Becky has tagged us- @quiltersdream in her photos!! Take a look for yourself... :)
                        


This cheerful bright gem on the left won the "Professionally Quilted" category on the Quilt Bloggers Quilt Festival last Spring. In her blog, Becky refers to this quilt as a "30's quilt with a Modern twist."

*For more on this quilt- visit her blog post.










Or how about this fun wall hanging she quilted up? Her unique color choice and detailed definition truly shows off her creativity and talent!! She used the free Star Bright Quilt Pattern from Swim Bike Quilt.

*Check out her Star Bright blog post







So are you ready to hear the secret of how Becky achieves the look on her quilts like this stunning eye-catcher?? Start by snagging the Kiara Chevron Pattern  on Craftsy and head to your local quilt shop for some Quilters Dream Batting!

*See the process in creating this pattern.



Becky's Technique: 

Use a double layer of batting. Pick a batting that is thinner, like Dream Cotton or Dream Blend. Then pair that with one that has some loft, like the Dream Puff or Dream Wool. When doing this technique, your quilt will have a nice added weight to it as well as giving it that 3 dimensional pop to your stitching!
