Free motion quilting
Good morning everyone!
It's been a rocky couple of days. The ride is going fine and I'll give you the whole run down hopefully by Sunday.
In the meantime, if you haven't read QUILTSocial this week - go back and read the posts. It is all about free motion quilting and the feedback has been very favourable.

Two different block styles to practise free motion quilting
There will be ONE more post (the last) for 50 ways that will hit the web site later today.
That is a LOT of reading, but if you want to learn how to free motion quilt - those links - well that's what I know. And if you want to take a class to learn how to quilt - check out the newsletter at The Hobby Horse. There is a basic machine quilting class and a free motion quilting class scheduled for the fall. As you know my time is very limited and this is the only offering there will be. And you MUST take both of the classes.
Also if you get a chance - check out the latest issue of A Needle Pulling Thread magazine - the HARD copy. I had a chance to check it out yesterday and there are TONS of great projects.
On that note - I am off to ride my bike today and hopefully get back to my car but it is going to be very late when I finally get back to Roseneath.
I won't be posting until Sunday - so enjoy all that reading above and don't forget to check out the last issue of 50 ways that will post this afternoon.
Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!!
