Friday Night Sew-In

Friday Night Sew-In, hosted by Homemade by Heidi,  is all about committing to 'you time' to work on a sewing project each month -- this month their are two as we are all busy finish gifties!

It was also a wonderful excuse to hang with the pup.  Something about the sewing machine and scraps on the floor that draws the curiosity of Katie.

We made a few more fabric birds (you can see the first one, Pierre, here, and still enter to win him!!) -- you can see me dancing this one in front of Katie's face... I may have to make one for her to play with. 

I took my first plunge into free motion quilting an actual project.  I think I am getting the hang of it and I am certainly enjoying the freeness of it!!  Once I realized I am the one that moves the fabric .... I was hooked!!

Katie too every excuse to rest her head on this project for some reason.  I think she knows who it's for and wanted to add a little touch of her own love into the project too!

This was pretty much her position for most of the night.... right under my armpit and her head on my leg.

Here's another sneak peak of the quilting.  Aren't the loops fun!!

Yes,  I didn't think quilting could get any better... but it so totally has!

And, there you have it!  Another happy sewing night.  I'm sorry I can't show more of the project, but that's just the result of the time of year that it is.  Imagine how much fun we will have in the weeks after Christmas checking out all these projects!

Welcome stitching sister to the wonderful world of freemotion quilting. I absolutely love it. I think it has so much more personality than a computerized pantograph.

Free motion quilting looks facenating... do you draw any designs on the fabric first - or just plug in the machine and go crazy? :)
