Stormy days and WIPS

Love to sew or read on stormy days!  Today I am freemotion quilting on a project for Moda Bake Shop....all that is left is to quilt the border. It is secret sewing so I can't show you much!   I did most of the quilt with a ruler and I have decided I really like this method of quilting. Also tried Angela Walters dot to dot method and I really like combining this method with my rulers.  She has a wonderful tutorial on her blog, Quilting is My Therapy.   And I highly recommend Angela's books, easy to follow ideas for free motion quilting.  She has a long arm, and I do not...so don't let that stop you.  I have a Janome 7700 Horizon and it works great for me.

Look who decided to take a nap instead of helping me quilt!



On Monday I had a lovely and exciting surprise.  One of the ladies at quilt guild congratulated me on having my quilt on the cover of McCall's Quilting magazine.  Yay!  I am a cover girl!  So excited to have my quilt chosen to be on the cover of the magazine!  It will hit the new stands on July 28 and I guess some with subscriptions are receiving theirs now.
