Ready for Free Motion Quilting!

First thing I want to mention is that I am hoping to teach another Free Motion Quilting class at our local school. If you are in the Winnipeg area and are interested in learning to free motion quilt your own quilts here is the LINK. Thanks!

I am ready for more free motion quilting! This weekend I finished piecing two projects.

This first one is a table runner that is about 22"x49". The blocks (15" and 6") are ones I pieced about 4 years ago and had set aside - I thought it was about time I did something with them.

This next project is 3" tumblers I cut with the GO! earlier in the year, when I was stash busting. I thought I would make a lap quilt - about 55"x74", but now that it is finished I am tempted to add some more borders and turn it into a twin bed quilt.

It is not like I don't have enough fabric.

I am also knitting with some more hand spun from the Tour de Fleece. This is a lovely scarf pattern called Lintilla.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!♥︎

Lovely projects, Joanne. I say go for the borders on the tumbler. It would make a wonderful bed quilt and I love your auditioned border fabric.

Great projects! Look like you've been sewing more this summer than I have.

Your projects look great Joanne, the borders will look good - will that upset your backing ideas? Like your runner too. I love the shawl, I see it's all garter stitch, will be a nice knit. Hope you get lots of registrations for your class :-)
