I'm learning to machine quilt by practicing on this green and blue lap size quilt, perfect for taking a nap on the couch.
The middle layer is cotton batting, which costs twice as much as the polyester batting I usually buy, but which is a 110 times more fun to quilt. I am so glad the woman at the quilt shop talked me into buying it!
My new machine can drop the feed dogs and with a darning foot I can free motion quilt in scrolls and lines of leaves. It's fun.
These are worn on the finger tips to grip the fabric and move it under the needle. Late afternoon sun falls over my dining room table as I work.
I took photos all through 2007-09 for Project 365 to post at least one photo a day. Now that my oldest son is in the Air Force we are using this photo blog to share our adventures with him across the miles.
