Back at the Laptop

I have been away from my laptop for a while. We had a good time away last week, a few days in Stratford upon Avon at a conference then to Devon to visit family. Some of which came back up with us to stay for the weekend. I was hoping to get lots of lovely photos of Stratford, being the home of Shakespeare but the camera that I took stopped working and the camera on my new phone isn't so good. I did find a great fabric shop selling Liberty at less than half price. I have quite a lots of Liberty collected over the years and plan on making myself a quilt at some point. I also picked up an advent calendar panel which I have planned for making up for some friends. The top two photos are of my disastrous attempt at free motion quilting...thought Hadley from Flying Blind would like a chuckle :)

What pretty fabrics and I love the Advent panel.

You should have seen my first free motion quilting. Yikes!!! Keep at it as it does get better. Do you have a silicone slider mat for the machine? It really helps make things smoother.

Hi Lindsey, lovely to catch up with your blog again. Wonderful of you to stick with my site throughout my illness. Thanks. Free motion is so hard!

Even your experiments look good. the advent panel is so well done. What a talented lady you are! I like how you are always trying to learn new things.
