FMQ Adventures News





I am so stinking excited about our upcoming quilt-along! I had been waiting for an email from a particular person..... I'll give you a hint:

Free motion quilting McTavishing

Yes, Karen McTavish has given her blessing and we will begin the McTavish-along on the first Monday of March. We will learn more about McTavishing (Link to one of her other books featuring McTavishing, but not her main book on the design as it has gotten spendy/out of print?) and share our individual progress with it with a blog linky party!

In other bloggy news, I've been mentioned by Christa today at Christa Quilts as part of her series of how to make quilting your business. Looks like I'm getting more visits than usual, so I say thanks to Christa and "Welcome!" to those who came from her blog. Don't forget to follow or add me to your reader service, so you can visit easily again.

Keepsake Quilting is running a huge giveaway: Free Fabric for life!  Hmmm....who decides how much fabric one needs for life? :-)

And I've been busy quilting on this commissioned quilt: she wanted a farm-y but not cutesy quilt. I think I've got it. Still a lot to do and it's been late for a long time.....

I think the chicken's legs are too fat, but we'll just pretend it's a breed characteristic....

So, dear readers, I think you for visiting. I hope you are having some free motion adventures of your own this week!
