I’ve Got Mail!!

Today I had a package in the mailbox and was excited to see that it was from Angela Walters which meant that I HAD NEW RULERS!!!!

She has just released three rulers for high-shank machines and I think that they are going to be SO much fun.

Here is what I did in just a few minutes…..

The first one is “Dot” and she looks like this…..

….and she can EASILY do this……

OH MY!!!!

Secondly, I played with “Smiley”……

This is one of the nicest arc rulers that I have seen. I just played for a few minutes and came up with several designs, but especially liked these nested petal shapes…..

Finally, came Petunia…..

She is a petite ruler that fits in the palm of my hand, but look what I did…..

Isn’t that fun!!!

So, you guys keep reading but I am heading upstairs to quilt!!!

Blocks 7 and 8…..

Blocks 7 and 8 are “in the bag” so to speak!! Only four more to go in our TWELVE WAYS TO QUILT A SAWTOOTH STAR challenge!!

The first one had lots and lots of straight lines…..

…including a Square Spiral design in the center.

Block 8 was all about the curve….working with a Fleur-de-lis type of design…..

Have a look at the video and then give these fun designs a try….either by quilting or by drawing it out!!!

I have already started thinking about Blocks 9 and 10!!

One of them is going to be a mixture of straight and curvy lines and may end up being a challenge to quilt…..stay tuned!!

If so, please join “MOVE-IT…. a Free-Motion Quilting Boot Camp”!! I will take you on a FREE 10-week journey to learn new designs and become more comfortable with just MOVING IT!!

Half way through!!!

This week we are moving quickly….. adding Block #5 and Block #6 to our “Twelve Ways to Quilt a Sawtooth Star”!!

We are playing in the sunshine for Block 5…..

And, Block 6 is all about “wishing”….Wishbone quilting that is!!!

The video is a bit longer because we are doubling the quilting, but I hope you will enjoy it and practice along with me, whether in thread or in lead!!

I keep coming up with new ideas and may have to make ANOTHER quilt just to use them all!!

Come back next Friday for blocks 7 and 8.
