My latest obsession :)

I have watched all the “Quilty” episodes up til current so I have been searching for more vids to watch on quilting to help me become more creative and find my own voice in this craft.  I have found this lady who calls herself the Gourmet Quilter 🙂  Check out this vid on how to make mug rugs… about 4 1/2″ square and super cute!  The vid is about 8 minutes just so you know 🙂

So that is my latest obsession!  What is yours ???  Here’s my progress on Pam’s quilt thus far…

I have 6 pinwheels completely quilted 😀  Here is a close up of the quilting I am doing on one 🙂

Are you ready to quilt???  I am excited to see what creativity lies within you that hasn’t been unleashed in quilting whether you quilt a lot or a little or never before 🙂

My daughter has been stippling a lot… color and black stipples and she is really doing quality stuff 🙂

My sons don’t express their creativity as much in artistic ways.  More in how they cope with the day to day I would say.

Did your friends or kids learn from you… did you learn from someone???

Okay now for a quick tip.  Handquilting is hard on your fingers… so simply cut a circle about 3/4″ around from electrical tape to cover your damaged fingertips… still have the same “feeling” but protects your skin from needle pokes and slips.  🙂

Congrats… you made it to the end… enjoy a view of the intercoastal and the little town I live in called Port Orange 🙂
