Yesterday I went off to my quilting group and we did a workshop on free motion quilting. I've had a go at this once or twice and I've quilted a couple of items this way, but I have to admit ... never very confidently. Well, we had the best fun!! I've come away from that class feeling so much better about giving it another go!! Here's part of my practice piece ... I really enjoyed doing the leafy design ... some of the rest of the piece looks a bit like a dog's dinner so this is the only part I'm sharing LOL.
When I got home from quilting there was a parcel on the doorstep!!all the way from USA!!! Look what I got .....I won a giveaway recently from Jennifer at Sweet Liberty, the prize was a bundle of 'manly flannels'. Well I have to say I never expected so much!!These are all fat 1/4s .....
and these are dozens of 5" squares already cut and ready to use!! And they're all sitting on 2 1/2 yards of gorgeous log cabins on cream.That's not all ..... there was also a yummy Dove chocolate and an American Patchwork and Quilting magazine!!!It wasn't long before this was the scene on my table :o) .... note the empty choccy wrapper hehehe.Thank you so much Jennifer, you're very kind ... your generosity just blew me away - you made my day :o).
I also managed to get some stitching done today (another good day!!!). I've been putting together my Oh Cherry Ohs - they're such cheery fabrics!!
I'd like this quilt to be another OPAM finish for April ;o)
...... lol we'll see!!
