I decided to join in the Free Motion Quilting challenge at SewCalGal. I am ok with ditch quilting and stippling, but am often short of ideas for doing motif type quilting, or different patterns. After watching the demonstration on Utube, by Frances Moore, this month’s design of a heart shaped leaf stitched out well and was enjoyable to do.
My practice piece worked out well enough (though the photos are not so good – I used a fabric that is too patterned to show the stitching clearly in a photo).
But I was happy enough to then use the leaf design on this UFO quilt that I had pulled out to work on.
I will be waiting to see what next month’s design is.
Today was one of those special days, We celebrated Grandie Sammy’s 3rd birthday, and 5 of our 6 Grandies were there. It is not often that so many of them can be in the same place at the same time.
Sammy enjoyed his day playing with his older cousins.
