Machine Quilting

I have been trying to create pages - it doesnt work...

SO ... if you go  here you will see our friends from the USA and our time with them.  I have no idea how to connect the page to here!
In the meantime - here is some quilting I did very quickly to show my guests how I quilted freehand.

A small part of the quilt, which I am currently doing.

One corner.  I have drawn freehand around one border  with my blue washable Berol marker and that's what I am currently sewing...then I plan to quilt the actual fabric design around the edge.

Back to sewing.

Great pictures Joan - you just need to install the pages gadget/widget then in the pages gadget you tick the pages you would like to display, either as tabs along the top of your blog or a list in the side bar. Hope that helps :0)

I must really start playing with some feathers. I'm doodling away, practising them on some of the lots of scrap paper in work, so hopefully soon ;0)
Tonight I hope to make a start in obliterating some UFO projects to clear the way to try something new and on one I may be able to work towards a feather design with some big leaves say ferny type leaves.

Hi Joan! This is my first time to your blog. What an attention-getting quilt in your header image! The black with bright colors just pops! And thanks for your comments on my posts at Ivory Spring a couple of weeks ago!

Great pictures of your guests and what a fun time you've had.
