|What good is a post without pictures? McTavishing around my feather.|
So I thought I'd share a few great places to visit online for some free motion quilting inspiration.
First is Angela Huffman's blog, A Quilted Joy. She's got a feast for the eyes with posts from the Mid Atlantic Quilt Show. Angela is also one of my "hero" quilters as she had to rise to some life challenges and made a career out of quilting and has really excelled.
I love quilting and sharing through my blog, but I also need to focus on making an income too, and Angela recently encouraged me by pointing out that my kids will do better with a mom who isn't freaked out by financial stress and they'll do fine switching to public school after being homeschooled.
And I visited Kimmy Brunner's blog last night and she so talented, focused, and is a total hoot to read! (Can I be like her when I grow up? But without the longarm?) Remember I mentioned in "Another Great Craftsy Sale" that you could watch Craftsy classes in 1.5x or 2x speed to save a little time? The down side is now when I read her blog, I "hear" her voice as the speeded up chipmunk version!
My need for speed lately might have contributed to my time lapse McTavishing video! It still makes me laugh!
Of course Sunday is a great time to visit Leslie at MarveLes Art Studios. She has a feast for the eyes and the spirit every time I visit. She has such a gift for encouragement too!
And Christa has sent me quite a few new readers lately, so I'm going to return the favor. She's a cute button of a gal with a passion for modern quilts. She's really doing some moving and shaking in the quilt biz side of things too!
And some of my new readers should be mentioned. There's a ton of you, so I can only do a few at a time.
Karen's Quilts, Crows, and Cardinals where you can find applique information galore! I'm starting to develop a passion for applique as that's a great way to use fine free motion quilting. The customer quilts I get from a few local longarmers are all applique.
Esther has been working on her McTavishing and on an amazing train pattern! If you've got little boy in your life, you have got to check it out!
And how about "What Comes Next"? She's always got something nifty in the works.
That will have to do for now so I can get some lunch on the table and get some quilting done. Then to finish up my post for tomorrow's McTavishing Monday! If you've missed any of the quilt along posts you can find them on the Free Motion Quilt-along page. I did an extra post on McTavishing yesterday too.
So do some visiting of your own, but make some time to do some quilting too!
