Controlling the beast!


I haven't done any free motion quilting for months, so I wanted to do some practice before completing my quilts for Otago. Here's the sampler I've worked on today. Some of it's a bit shaky but generally, I'm happy with the result. I'm not used to quilting a single design within a confined space (these fabric pieces are quite small) so it was a good exercise in control.

Shirley I tried to email you but my *(%$*!"^&($ email provider was playing up yet again and I got a message that I wasn't allowed to email you! Allowed? If you've been reading the blog you'll know I've been having BIG problems! Anyway thanks for the email and I am adding a link to your blog on my blog. Nice quilting too!

HI Shirley
Welcome to the ring, I see you post on one or two other lists that I am on too. Best of luck with the business and perhaps I will get around to see you sometime in NZ. My man says he is thinking we could perhaps move there YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
