If you're just arriving, the giveaway and quilt along announcement are here.
I want to say a thank you to all my new followers, quilters who have dropped by and shared their excitement and questions about free motion quilting. Thank you especially for spreading the news on your blogs! I did not know the idea would generate this much excitement, and so quickly! How wonderful.
I am getting ready to give a little free motion quilting demo at the Portland Modern Quilt Guild meeting this Thursday. The first quilt along post will come after that, most likely this weekend. I'll share the details of the quilt top and the supplies you'll need. Many of you let me know you are brand new to free motion quilting. I promise that when we start free motioning together, we will start simple. This free motion quilt along should not be a big time commitment. I will probably post one quilting activity per week. Since I have about 45 minutes per week for sewing, I anticipate the quilt along will request about 30-45 minutes or so of your time.
I'll just leave you with a picture of the hexagons I stitched for the PMQG hexagon swap. I basted through the paper this time, just to try it. And I used true 1" templates. Can't wait to see who goes home with these!
