quliting bug....its bit me!


ok, ok whatever! but i made this awesome tree block, just trying to figure it out and loved it. I wanted to do something with it, so i decided to quilt it. Gave me some practice with my "Walking foot". I have always been too scared to use it. *shrug*

ok TRY, not to laugh here. Yes, i KNOW it looks like Elmo colored all over my quilt square....

but again, i was just using up scraps, trying out a maverick star, and thought...hmmmmmmmm wonder how that free motion quilting thing works?????
so i gave it a whirl. lol. not as scary as i thought, nor as easy as i had hoped. lol. but, it is practice...and another coaster/trivet/pot holder thingy!
I finally finished the "blue jean" quilt top i have been working on for my DS. I am terrified to quilt it. It is sooooooo heavy and soooooo big. I don't usually "do" small. oh well. Maybe my friends at the quilting group can help me figure it out...hint! hint!!
