Ugh! Don't you hate it when this happens?????
Working away and what do I notice when I turn the bar? EYELASHES! YIKES! So, needless to say this called for becoming "Best Friends" with the seam riper. Out came 3/4 of this row. For some reason this bobbin just wound too tight causing the top thread to be pulled too much, hence, the eyelashes.......I will say that after taking all this out and re-doing it, it looks super! Stay tuned for tomorrows post and I will show you this beauty all finished up!
What do you get with a fun doodle and these four thread color?
Really cool design on a beautiful quilt! This is an example of what I did on Gerri's quilt. These four thread colors and this fun design that I sketched out on some scratch paper.

MQX, Here we are!
This is my BFF Johanna and I at the MQX this last Saturday! We had a lot of fun and WOW the work that was displayed was really something!
My BFF and I even took a class from none other than Angela Walters! This was an excellent class and I am so glad that we had the opportunity to attend and meet Angela! She is super sweet and a great "inspirational speaker", yes I am inspired to really do more and get out there!
If you are not familiar with Angela check out her web site; Quilting is my therapy.
So, yes I have been busy this week, not only did my BFF and I attend the Expo, but I also just joined the Eugene Modern Quilt Guild! This was a lot of fun and what a group of ladies! One day I will get my BFF there too!
Also I have another finished quilt to share! Take a look at finished quilts and my blog to view pictures!
Still all about Free Motion Quilting!
So, I'm hoping to get started with quilting services. Please let me know if you are interested in this. I also always have soooooo many ideas of fun crafty things to do. I will be sure to post a couple of videos as soon as get some time to do so. I really wanted to share with you today one of my favorite things! take a look and send my message through blog. This could be my first how to video!
Don't you just love Antique Quilts!
This quilt you see here I actually finished. The original maker had all of the Dresdland plate blocks done, each by hand. Impeccable workmanship, so I hope you all out there feel that I did these blocks justice with sashing and the quilting I did on the beautiful quilt.
Go to my blog to check out more pictures and leave me a comment on what you think.

Free Motion Quilting
So this is a first for me. I am very new at this, so bear with me on the trials and errors as I set forth on this new venture! I started out with a mid. arm quilter, an older model, but a real work horse. This was a great machine to start out on as there were absolutely no bells or whistles. So, if something went haywire you could pretty much fix it yourself. Not something that you can really do with any of the fancy more modern machines. After about 8 months, I was given the opportunity to upgrade my equipment! I was soooooo excited! So, I sold my mid. arm and purchased a long arm 18 X 8 and a nice new frame! The set up is awesome and I am ever so grateful to have been given the opportunity to upgrade. My long arm does have a stitch regulator and a bobbin winder! This is great as I broke my bobbin winder to my sewing machine trying to wind bobbins for the mid arm........Now that I have 10 months under my belt I have entered 3 quilts into my first quilt show ever, The Coburg Quilt Show. This quilt show will be on Sat. July 28th. When I went there to drop my three off, there were so many beautiful quilts that people have done I'm so green (new) I wonder much my own will pale in comparison........
Here is a sneak peak of some of what I have done.......
This quilt is one of my favorites and one that I did on my original mid. arm. I just love birds!
Lots of pebbling and outlining really made this quilt come to life!
This is the back side of the bird quilt. I love using solid backings just so you can really enjoy the detail of the quilting! I used three thread colors on this quilt, Dark brown, grey, and a cream. This accented the top really nice and then gave a really fun element to the back!
Check out my other pages and send a blog, let me know what you think.
If you are interested in quilting services I will be posting an online form soon. Also check out my other pages, such as the hand bags and finished quilt portfolio!
