Quilt With Us

Just added a couple photos....

I just added a couple photos of a baby quilt that I am using as a guinea pig for free motion quilting. I have a serious deficiency when it comes to easy I think! I traced a friends baby hands and feet and then used them as a pattern for this quilt. I then added hearts and lines in between. I couldn't possibly start with something easy like stippling!! HAHA It looks OK from a distance but up close well that's a different story! But Jody is only a year old and won't notice!
I also added a Body Pillow I am making from a show I watched on QuiltersTv.com. A lady in Canada creates the patterns for these and I just took one of her pictures and counted the charm squares and prairie points and created my own. It will have a backing with a hidden zipper in it and then you insert a fluffy body pillow and use it for a great addition across the head of your bed. This is made from Faded Memories from Moda Charm Pack and some fat quarters I had of the same line. Very easy to make and they are so cute.

Just a couple of my unfinished projects that I am trying to finish! Only about 5 more to go!

I finally had success with meandering after a friend gave me a great tip. If your machine has a speed control, set it at a slower speed, keep the machine going at that speed, and concentrate on moving the fabric. Worked great for me.

Pam, it looks like you're doing a great job! You're braver than I!! Love the idea of the body pillow cover. Had a fair amount of fabric left from my niece's quilts and was toying with the idea of doing something (other than shams) for their beds. Like this idea!!

Hi, Pam! Your body pillow is interesting. My physical therapist suggested I use one when I sleep to keep my spine aligned properly. (I sort of cradle it with my arms and legs.) Making a cover for it is a great idea. I got my body pillow at WalMart for $10 and wasn't crazy about the color. Now I think I can improve it, thanks to your idea!
