Machine Quilting

Yesterday I taught a few friends (including my Mother) a machine quitting class.

Every one did very well and it was lots of fun.

Here is my Mom's work.

I have been working on machine quilting a little mat/large mug rug that I made with the pieces I cut with the new GO! Die.

Yesterday morning when I opened the patio door to take a picture of the beautiful full moon -

a rabbit was eating carrots on the deck three feet away -

he didn't even flinch! I could just hear him crunching away. Next time maybe he'll come right inside.

Debbie (of Designs by Debbie and Dixie Too!) is having her first giveaway of a beautiful "I Love Quilting" necklace (I assume the contest closing date is wrong since she just posted the contest yesterday).

I am thrilled to say that my baby is coming home today after three days at winter camp with his school, and that my husband is also coming home today after almost two weeks of being in southern California - I think the -30°C/-20°F temperatures here will be a bit of a shock to him!

I am also very pleased to say the we believe that my SIL will be fine after been found outside on one of the coldest nights of the year - someone was definitely watching over her!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!

I have one of those Supreme Slider things that goes on your machine bed when you do free-motion quilting. It isn't expensive, and it really helps.

Machine quilting class looks like it was a good class and lots of fun! They are very fortunate to learn from someone who is so talented! Love the moon pic! The blues are beautiful!

I would love to be able to sit in on a class with you! Always find your work and your blog so enjoyable. The Full Moon pic looks like a picture post card and the rabbit is too cute!
Grandchildren ages 5 and 2 1/2 have been staying for a couple of days, going home tonight. Had lots of fun but really ready to sew.

It looks like they are enjoying the process.

I am so glad that your sister will be okay. What a frightening event.

Yes, hubby will be in for a shock after being in CA.
