This weekends retreat was frantastic. I do believe everyone left feeling more confident about their ability to do free motion quilting. Now for the hard part. ACTION LADIES ACTION! Get those finished tops basted and get started while everything is still fresh in mind. If you have not experienced a Two Wackey Women retreat, well you haven't really been to a class retreat. They take care of everything so you can really enjoy yourself. A few spots remain for the May retreat, but Oct. is sold out. Get all the info at

I want to thank everyone for their comments. I tried to reply via email. I will leave you with another view, adding text with picassa. Wouldn't this make a great book cover? I am off come Thursday to my annual machine quilting retreat that starts Friday am. I need to find everything, copy instructions, and pack. YEAH!!! See you next week. Until then.... keep on quilting.

This is one of those" what if "moments. Any thing but what I really should be doing. The whole piece does not photograph well but is kinda interesting.

I have been known to try and machine quilt almost any fabric. This is an old damask table cloth with many permanent stains. There is enough to quilt a large pillow cover. It would have to be dry cleaned as my first sample did not do well in the washer. It's pretty but probably not useful. Oh well...

We have sunshine in So. California today. Yesterday was wet but oh my the rainbow was spectacular! This was adapted from an applique pattern I have. I have always admired the suns on Sunday Morning and have started collecting pictures, hoping to make a quilt someday. Hope you are warm where ever you are. If not ...grab a quilt!

Hey there to my newest followers. Thanks for checking me out. Another quilted card that any quilter friend would love. I use paper backed silk and run it through the printer for the sayings. It keeps that see through look I like. It is then also fused to the card.

Who said you can't machine quilt a card? Minus the batting of course. The design is fused which gives the card extra body. Try it you'll like it!
