Free Motion Quilting

I have added to my sampler piece

I took this photo in the sun so its a bit bright.
You can see my leaf samples - the circle and the rectangle.

I took this wonderful book I have from Kim Stotsenberg
of sewnsewquilting and I took the book, a book to draw in and a few pencils and drew most of the designs in the leaf it book, while I watied for my DH to have his appointment, and thought I would have a go with what I had learnt. 
Its a great book and I know I will use it lots.  Thank you Kim :)

So I am still experimenting with coloured silk thread
and will do some more of my feather later today/tonight

I love kim's book, I've taken some classes from her and the ideas are great. Just exchange the feather for a leaf and you get some great designs. I usethem for more masculine quilts where I want to feather but know I shouldn't, ;-)
