Designs, FMQ and playing,

Well , I have been working a bit on my sewing, though with a slow start...
No my mind is begging to go into quilt mode as I have another quit to get done.

I tried a few things out 

Tried doing some painting on the black fabric - didn't work...or at least I was not really sure what to do :(

Today I do some practice squiggles

And some free hand FMQ - this I was pleased with, though the back legs  were bit wonky.

Lots more practice to do, and think I will draw what I want to quilt on instead of doing it freehand.
May make it work better.

This is Andrea...she had been modelling at the local Technical school for graduating designers..and someone there made her face up. 

She probably wont like me putting this up...but I liked it.

Thats it for now.
Back to working out some quilt designs.  I have some large practice bits to do before I star..
need to experiment with thread etc.  
The lizard was done with YLI 100 Silk, with Invisafil in the bobbin.

Machine Quilting

this I have put together for a friend....   (to help her make this for a gift)....who is coming over to get this done soon.


I am quilting - in the ditch - but I have made a start at last!

Space in the borders and space in the quilt itself..  Yeehaw..

Believe it or not - this is a King sized quilt... it fits easily under my 820 Bernina.

So - here I go again...slowly but surely - in between other things of course!

Lots of lovely space on this.
