    Nicky, I've had a look on your blog, your work is beautiful! You really improved on FMQ! Does Angela Walter's book Free Motion Quilting add something to the FMQ quilt along from Leah Day?

    Hi Anael, thank you for your kind words. It is just a different perspective. Leah explains and shows you how to do the designs in a video and Angela explains it in writing with photos and diagrams with little arrows and dots showing you where to start and stop. This works very well for me when I use my small dry erase board or sketch pad and pencil to draw the design before testing it on fabric. Drawing helps form the muscle memory so to when I try it on fabric it comes almost automatically. It is quite magical.

    I also have two of Leah's books with photos and they are great to use as catalogs to select a design.

    Finally, I have enrolled in both Leah's and Angela's classes on Craftsy.com. It is a great platform for learning.

    Take care,
    Nicky

    Thanks Nicky! I'm taking Leah's class on Craftsy too. I watched her video's but I never understood how to do those designs on a large quilt. After taking Leah's class on Craftsy it is easier to 'see'. I've seen your dry erase board on your blog, I might buy one too. I sometimes draw designs on paper but most of the time I just try to sew them on a piece of fabric.
    I'm off to Craftsy now to see what classes Angela is teaching!

    I would be new to this but I would LOVE to join in after the holidays and begin!! I ordered the book two days ago and I am sure I have plenty of fabrics in my stash to work with.

    I plan to take the book to Staples and have it spiral bound as some here have done.

    Good morning ladies. Officially we should still be doing #49 Wisconsin this week. Did anybody do Wisconsin this week? Or any other star? I hope those who are still working on their stars or are just starting will continue to show us their pretties.

    I was hoping my book would arrive this weekend but it didn't. Hopefully Monday.

    Here's a Wisconsin. After I finished and stood back, I saw that I could have arranged the leaves so they looked like they were swirling. Darn. I think I'm going to have withdrawal symptoms when this is done. Three more for me but I plan on finishing on time next Sunday.

    I am working on my back. I enlarged the Ohio block, my home state 300% to put in the center I finished it tonight. It is 36 inches square. I am adding to it now to make it large enough. I need to figure out how to make it with the fabric I have. Not buying any more. Hopefully can post it tomorrow.

    I was hoping to finish my back last night. I have been feeling just a little bit lousy for the last week. A bunch of kids in the classroom have colds etc. Not quite sure what is wrong. I was so tired last night I went to bed early. I don't feel bad enough to stay home just a little bit off. Hopefully it will go away soon. I am off Friday and am hoping to take my quilt to my long armer.

    Pat, I hope you feel better soon. This is not the best time of year to be sick but I know those little devils will give it to you every time.

    My three lap quilts

    Hi everyone, I didn't finish all 50 blocks but I did 37. 36 for these three lap tops, and I did Ohio as one of my very first paper pieced blocks, I haven't gotten these quilted yet, just added to the "to be quilted" pile. But here here we go...I made the beige sashing one for myself, the green for my DDIL and the blue denim for my DD. I didn't have any ideas when I stared what I was going to do with these, so they are totally scrappy. And I love how they turned out. Now it will soon be time to clear off my table accept for the sewing machine, and just keep on quilting, and quilting and quilting. Enjoy

    Katie, love your quilts. I finally broke down and went to the doctor today since my vague symptoms finally turned in to something. I have a sinus infection. I get them several times a year. This one started different than usual. A day or so on antibiotics and I should be fine.

    Oh my goodness they are beautiful. I don't know when I will get mine put together. Am trying to finish up other ones. I like the way someone had quilted each one and then put them together. I am leaning toward doing that

    Nygal I have seen your blocks over on the NY beauty group. They are awesome. I am sure your stars will be beautiful. I am planning on doing that one next but it will probably be after Christmas. I am still making Christmas gifts. I have been lurking there since it started. Can't wait to start. I finally finished my back. I thought I had it finished but apparently I messed up the math. WHen I measured my back it was too small by a couple of inces. I had to trim my outer border and add another one. I will post a picture later. I am taking my quilt to the longarmer today. I hope she isn't too backed up since I am dying to see it finished and on my bed. I look forward to seeing everyones work.
