Kelly Cline Quilting

“Quilting Vintage Linens” is on YouTube!

Just what you’ve asked for and so many have waited for! Finally, a video that shows you how I approach quilting vintage linens on the longarm. Thanks to Handi Quilter, who recently filmed a 45 minute segment on this process. I hope you enjoy the episode and don’t hesitate to ask questions. If you are interested in my rulers or lectures/workshops, find those tabs for more information. Thanks for visiting!

“Bohemian Dancer”

This is a recent finish by my customer, Leanne. I love the colors and the mix of fabrics! Jewel tones in cotton, linen. wool and silk. The design is by Lynn Schmitt Gallagher, A Different Box of Crayons. Definitely one of those quilts that needed to be touched in every special piece. Details…..2 layers of batting, 80/20 on the bottom and 100% wool on top, Glide thread in multiple colors to match each fabric. Enjoy the pictures!










This quilt is completely free motion quilted, using my Handi Quilter longarm. I used my rulers A LOT on this one. You can see my method in this short little clip. Have a wonderful weekend folks!


NEW YouTube Videos for Rulers!

I’m often asked if I have videos to show how I’m doing a technique. I keep saying I’ll get a GoPro, but for now, my phone is quick and easy. Thanks to Leanne, whose quilt I am using to share some ruler work. Here are a couple of new clips on using my rulers.



“BE KIND”, by Jenifer Dick

I love this quilt, designed by Jenifer Dick. It was quilted last year and she will be teaching this quilt and others next year at the Road to California show. See her website for more details.


Simple quilting for a simple, yet powerful message.


Only ruler work on this quilt! Thankfully, I LOVE ruler work!



Have a wonderful weekend, be kind.

Sedona Star

Customer Quilts | March 11, 2016 | By

This amazing quilt was a labor of love and a year in the making by my friend and customer, Shari. The pattern is Sedona Star, by Sarah Vedeler. I used at least a dozen thread colors, all Glide brand by Fil-Tec. Finished size is 106″ square and contains a lot of my heart and soul 😉 Enjoy the picture overload!



I use my favorite quilting rulers for ditch stitching and as resistance against the hopping foot when I outline around the applique.






All of the inside quilting is hand guided. I changed thread colors to blend with each fabric. I like a balanced mix of ruler work and free motion curves.











I did use a digitized computer design for the wide border.


The back is almost as beautiful and definitely looks galaxy-like, fitting of the title, “Sedona Star”.
