Monday Morning Design Wall 1/14/2013

 Good Morning!!  I had the best weekend every as I took Cindy Needham's Beginning Machine Quilting Class in Sacramento!!  All I can say is WOW!  I learned so much.  As you can see by the back of my Black/White/Yellow circle quilt, I can now feather!!  Yes, free form feathers!!  I learned my hum/purr feeling for the machine, slowing my hands down and not creating "toe catching stitches".  SO MUCH FUN!!

 I will say that I was so exhausted after the class I went to bed really early last night and could still use a bit of down time today!  I cannot wait to finish this quilt as I have planned out the quilting on the next three already!   Her talk on design was fantastic and makes me just want to take more classes on design for machine quilting.  I will be very busy for the next several weeks working on these projects and may have to get a second job to pay for all the thread I will need but that is life!!

Remember to check out Judy's blog and see every one's design wall!!


  1. WOW! Great job on the free motion feathers. How exciting to take a class about quilting.

  2. Glorious! You are so creative and talented. Sewing must be a special gene in you. Congrats on those feathers - wonderful job.

  3. I am so jealous of your feathers! I can't free motion quilt at all! Am going to have to learn. Great job!

  4. Cheeeze, Jennifer! Now you can do EVERYthing there is in quilting! Such beautiful work! You have inspired me to take Cindy's class--finally.
