    Thanks so much for the imput, Izy. I really thank you for your tips. Maybe I'll try the machine stitching one day soon. Just to chicken to. :oops: I have two crib sized quilts to finish for our hay provider's little girls and then I'll have to give it a go. :D

    Well what worked for me was just getting on and trying, practic,e a little each day and you will soon see how you can improve, don't be put off by your first attempts like I nearly was!! I went onto utube and watched a few videos on free motion to get ideas from, but I have just found on this forum the post with all the videos - omg think I better get back to bed before I start checking all those out lol!!

    Your free motion quilting samples are really quite good. I think you are ready to tackle the big one! You should be veeeery proud of yourself. Your quilt is innovative and very gorgeous!!! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    First, I want to say that I absolutely LOVE your quilt. The colors are perfect...it is just gorgeous. Your Sue bonnet block is very very cute as are the others. I like them. And you've been doing an awesome job at free motion. Keep up the great work and I can't wait to see more.

    First quilt???????? It is magnificent and much more complicated than I would attempt at this time. You make it look so easy. We can hardly wait to see what you make on your "second" quilt!

    Again may I thank all of you for your positive comments, my machine is a Janome memorycraft 9000 - until about six months ago I had no intention of using a machine as I had only ever stitched straight lines, soft furnishings etc. and was petrified of trying anything 'fiddly'. I sort of 'happened upon' patchwork as I thought the group were cross stitchers when I first joined!! Needless to say after the first session I went home with a few scraps and a dresden plate template( I will attach what that ended up as - I don't believe or can afford to waste anything lol!!) I managed to 'swirl the inside so it lay o.k. - I did do this on my old singer machine - but found it easier in the beginning to use paper templates for acuracy. THEN Rachel decided to buy a new machine.......well the rest you have seen.... I haven't learnt half of what the machine does, it can be programmed to do lots of embroidery which I haven't even started on yet, Monday afternoons are to be embroidery lesson sessions.... God knows when I am ever gonna do the ironing.........LOL!! :wink:

    This is one of the pre-programmed embroidery stitches on one of my blocks

    first dresden plate - I should have only have had 12 pieces, but the paper template I was given was to my eye not accurate so I drew my own - and ended up with 16 - did I fail the test????

    :wink: Thats ok my grammar is terrible!!...its been years since I've studied Spanish, so this is kind of a fun refresher for me LOL. I took 7 yrs of Spanish in school, jr and sr high schools.
    I was wondering if you had any other pictures of cushions? I just love the dresdan plate one. If you have pictures of any others I'd love to see them, I desperately need to make cushions for our dining table chairs. Your's was so inspirational, I thought maybe you had some more pics :D.

    and this might help you out a bit from time to time, I have to refer to it ALOT! LOL Just type a word or phrase into the English to Spanish translater on the left and it will give you alll kinds of info, and tenses. Thanks for the chance to get a Spanish refresher going :)
