Free Motion Quilting - March entry

WHN has been learning how to free motion quilt, thanks to a great blog- SewCal Gal.



this month's challenge involved loops, stars, swirls and flowers!  WHN was working on her daily rpactice piece when her Janome decided to quit!  (The bobbin case keeps getting bent and twisting the top thread so she goes to the shop tomorrow!) The musling with the dark green thread has our names and WHN's and Dad's names also.  The one with the neon yellow thread (which is what WHN was doing today) has her name and the names of her two new machines, plus she was making some pretty big flowers on it!  When Janome (her real name is Jeannie) comes back, WHN will finish her up and then bind it and use it on the arm rest of the couch!  In January,  when the challenges started, WHN learned how to do leaves- and hers look like hearts!  February, WHN learned how to make feathers and that was very difficult, but the teacher Diane Gaudynski, has a really wonderful book and WHN simply needs more practice!  This month's you see above.  Every month there is a new challenge and prizes!

WHN will be working on the Crossed Paws auction items this weekend- a pillow for our furiend Honeybuzz aka Fendi, and a set of placemats for the WDA!  yesterday, Dad took all of us to the Quilt Expo in Cleveland- WHN behaved and Dad picked out some patterns for her to do for him!

That naughty Jeannie. Misbehaving while doing such beautiful work. My Momma had an embroidery machine once with lots of bobbin problems. She ended up taking it back for a refund and a new, cheap machine that doesn't embroider.
