Fun Free Motion Quilting

Here's a turkey that's been hanging around here lately. He was a lot of fun to stitch up. He's in my shop space, but as usual, I doubt he'll sell, so I just might go get him on Wednesday so I can have him in my house for Thanksgiving. I'm going to be changing things with my local shop since they just don't have much traffic. Maybe I'll finally set up an Etsy site.


In the pics below is a custom made purse ordered by the shop manager where I sell my quilty stuff. She picked out the fabrics and I was not wild about them, so it was a bit of a challenge. But she wanted a little metallic thread for bling, so I got to play around with some and it was wonderful. I used Superior Thread's metallic thread in gold and no problems whatsoever.




Over all, the bag had a oriental thing going on and she was quite pleased with it. The bag pattern is my own design and this time I added zippered pockets on the inside.



I do like the purse design, but it seems to take forever to make even though it is fairly simple. The handles are a bit fiddly but worth it.




In other quilty news, I've finally begun to quilt my large art quilt that I made to give as a thank you to my church. It's very big and means a lot to me so it's been slow going.




What have you been stitching on?
