My First Quilt Finish of 2010

"EARLY AUTUMN"


The plans for this quilt were first born in my mind well over a year ago when I posted about my plans for the cozy cabins pattern found in the January, 2009 issue of Quick Quilts in these posts: HERE,HERE and HERE.

The year 2009 for me was a year of learning new quilt making techniques, especially free motion machine quilting. I really love this quilting method and am so happy that I am able to free motion quilt on my vintage Singer sewing machine SHOWN HERE. I hope to improve my machine quilting skills this year and to learn to "draw with thread" other patterns in addition to the meandering style of this quilt.







Now that this quilt is finished, I have many plans and dreams for more quilting in 2010. I plan to continue on with completing the quilts I have in progress as well as starting some new projects. I really would like to make a table runner, which should be a quick project.

I love reading your blog. I too am working on the relying and trusting thing. It's not easy but I feel that if I'm working in the Lord with it all will be right.

I love the quilt. The machine quilting will come. I love the advantages of being able to compete the quilt from beginning to end myself. I do send some out to be quilted but only the really bg ones. I like to keep my girlfriend in business too. Keep up the good work.
