I have been doing a lot of FMQ this week on my Expanding Possibilities quilt (the one that has given me so much grieve to stitch). And while I still don't have my insert for my sewing table yet, the new set up is working pretty well. (Leah, I'm really enjoying your sewing room organization posts)
|I have three birds marked for the top section of the quilt.|
Click here to see all the different threads I used. What surprised me the most is how much I liked stitching with silk thread.
On my Elephant quilt project, I played around and designed my first block. I wrote up a tutorial on how to make this block if your curious.
And now for some shameless begging for your vote! No, not the presidential vote, the Blogger's Quilt Festival voting. Nomination starts tomorrow! I would be ever so grateful if my quilt was nominated in the best baby quilt and/or best home machine quilted. Then of course, if my quilt is nominated, I'll need your vote to win.
