Blog Update

I just wanted to post a quick blurb here to point out that the url for my blog is no longer using "blogspot.com." It is still hosted and created on the Blogger platform and any links that end in freemotionquiltingadventures.blogspot.com should still work.

I've done a "redirect" so that it all shows up on www.freemotionquiltingadventures.com. It's still quite a mouthful, but a little shorter. If you read the blog in a feed reader or RSS service, you might need to change it. But the blog has been set up this way for the last 3 days, so if you haven't noticed any issues, you're probably good.

In other news, I've set up an Etsy shop. I shared a picture of my "Finish" quilted wall art with a Facebook group that I am in and many of the members were interested in having their own word done up in a similar fashion. I'm totally new to the Etsy thing, but I figure it's another adventure to try!


I'm continuing to work on my wholecloth quilt. That silk is slippery! I am having great results with the YLI silk thread too. It's so fine, I have trouble seeing it as I stitch but that makes for great backtracking.

The silk/cotton blend of the Robert Kaufman Radiance is beautiful, but shiny as well as slick. I get some great light through my window and I've had to lower the shade a few times to keep from being blinded!


On the window ledge is one of those little solar powered flower things. It was a gift from a friend and it just makes me happy to see it in the window while I work at my machine. It also peeks out the window and greets me when I park in the driveway.


I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and get some time to free motion quilt.

  1. Really like the results of the Radiance as a whole cloth! This will finish beautifully! Something similar in my future, too, and I hope it turns out as well as yours!!!!!!

  3. My goal tomorrow is to sandwich a couple of small quilts, so I have something to quilt. Your quilting is so lovely and you are making great progress. I invite you to link to WIPs Be Gone to show it off and inspire us with your work. Blessings!
