Something a Little Different



I wanted to try a new quilting design, and found this site, with lots of new patterns. I thought it was the same as the pajama quilter site, but it's called Fast and Free. I like the way they organize the patterns into families. It seems like a nice way to think about how the design is supposed to work. So I picked one listed as easy and filled up a stack of scratch paper with some practice. The repeat itself is pretty easy, then I had to figure out how to transition from row to row. I had a little trouble reversing the pattern to come back the other way, but I think I've got it down now. I'll have to see how it looks on the whole quilt, but it is really fun to try something new.

I told you, I told you, I told you!!!! It's now 11:42, and I peeked at the quilting site you shared.

You absolutely ROCK! Seriously! This can't be a coincidence! Just last night, I was googling quilting-free-motion patterns, and I came across the DVD's that showed these exact Designs! How AMAZING that you found this awesome site with FREE downloads! It SURE beats paying $24.95! THANKS HUN!

Oh, and....I really don't know which is cuter: Sydney, or the Dresden quilt. That smile on her face is MORE than preious! But the quilt is spectacular! The colors are amazing--perfect for a doll like Sydney!

Enjoy your week at class :0)

And I won't be one bit surprised if that OC doesn't get finished up in the wee-hours of the night

Your quilting looks very good, and the design is very different, I am going to check out the website. I am hoping to try some FMQ soon. Not on my OC though, it is going to be too big, probably on a baby quilt. You do a great job.
