I've been quilting for church for the last 7mo. It gets so boring! You make the basic quilt for everyone. Here lately I have added decorative stitches, Helped a little.
Here's a picture of the new stencil I tried after practicing on a quilt for my elderly Mom. I couldn't believe how much I had improved.

I made this from men's shirts. And I am really quite pleased with the way it turned out.

and more scraps
I held off on buying the aqua and brown/tan fabric I wanted to use on my next quilt, BIG MISTAKE. It's all gone!! I have called all the local shops looked extensively online. Does anyone know whether those colors will be restocked??? They seemed to be very popular. How do I find out what new fabric will be coming out from the manufacturers. I certainly hope they come back I love the spa colors.

Only tried it for a short time , but I think I may stick to straight line quilting. Is it something that gets easier? Or is it one of those skills that you either have it or you don't?

Just finished my Diamond quilt using Kaffe Fasset fabrics. Trying to decide what to use for backing. This is for our CA King. Yes, it's big! I love sewing diamonds!
Thanks for looking.
My Mom was so pleased with her Mother's day gift, I got a lot of practice with FMQ.
