I'm calling my latest quilt "Periwinkle Blue," named for a song by Doris Day and my favorite crayon color. It is finally done.
What a joy it has been to make this quilt.
It was the block-of-the-month project on Craftsy last year.
When it was completed, I had stacks of blocks that I wasn't really sure what to do with until I heard about Leah Day's free motion quilting
Here we go again maybe this time it will work, if not I give up at least for now.
These are my most recent quilts and I love them. Both were donated to raise money for worthy cause. Bigger for my foundraiser at my parish the smaller to support library at local woman and children shelter. I made them coudly and reversible - back is done as rag quilt.
Does anybody know anything about this type of machine?

I am fairly new to quilting, so here goes. The quilts I have done in the past, I started in the center. Is this correct or should I begin on one end? Thanks

Hi everyone, I'm new out here and enjoy learning from reading your messages with all the great info! Recently I updated my "tools" (hubby is ok when he understands they're tools) by getting a new sewing table and new machine. But the lighting in my sew room is terrible. Can you share some ideas as to how you light up your sewing areas? Thanks! (and btw, I have no idea how to navigate around here; learning that, too!) - Patty

I'm not happy cause I'm sick, but when I was grieving I sat and thought about when I was happiest in my life. I loved being a nurse but when I was happy at home and raising my girls I loved sewing! I loved sewing for them, I did slipcovers, window treatments, clothes for me. I've never quilted. But Ive found reading this entire site, looking at pictures of beautiful quilts has made me want to get
