      Thank you so much Nancy! This quilt turned out so much better than I could have ever hoped! All my free motion quilting classes and practice really paid off.

    Hi Sherry!
    B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L.!!!!!! I cannot believe that you didn’t have confidence in your quilting prior to this. Stop that right this minute. I mean it – I would add you middle name if I knew it. You did a fabulous job. Fabulous! I wish I could look at it closer – to really enjoy those trees and stuff. I’m going to start following you so I can continue to be inspired by your wonderful talent that you are minimizing. ~smile~ Roseanne

      Thank you so much Roseanne! Also I fixed my images so you can click on them to get to the full image size to zoom in! I didn’t realize I had forgotten to link it! I think a lot of free motion quilting is all about confidence. I’ve taken lots of classes and practiced, but never put everything together before now. I am beyond pleased with how this turned out 🙂

        Hi again,
        Thanks so much for fixing those links! It is even better – is that possible – now that I can really lust after your trees and poinsettia blocks! So, so, SO nice! I understand the whole practicing the design first but were you able to quilt this with little starting and stopping? Just wondering if you spent time planning your route so to speak – that seems to be where I fail. I get stuck right away and then go back to straight line quilting that I’m comfortable with. You should be very pleased with yourself! You did a great job. ~smile~ Roseanne

          I actually started and stopped a bunch! I did all the ribbon candy first and then quilted each individual block. I *should* have planned better, but sometimes I figure it’s easier on my mind to just to bury my threads from all the starts and stops.

    So many fun things to look at on your quilt. I think the quilting in the trees is my favorite too. Everyone did such a great job with their quilts. So much creativity.

    The quilting looks great! I especially like the quilting in the tree farm block. I have just a little bit of hand binding left on mine, can’t wait to finish!

    Sherry, Your quilt is GORGEOUS!!!! The quilting is exquisite! I had to look several times at the tree block to figure out how you did that one. Easy peasy and such a nice effect. I still haven’t finished my top. Another round of eye surgeries just after Christmas set me back again. I am thankful that I can see albeit a bit blurry yet. So I’m not sure it will be finished in 5 days.

      Thanks Karen!!! I hope your eyes heal quickly! I can’t wait to see your finished quilt whenever you can get it done 🙂
