Time to quilt it...

It's been a while since I've wrote. A lot of good things have been keeping me busy the last few months.

A few months ago I was lucky enough to attend a machine quilting feathers class at my local quilt shop. The world renowned Mark Sherman was the instructor! I had a blast and learned some great techniques. The most important tip was practice, practice, and, more practice. I need to get these quilt tops quilted!
Here's the sample I quilted in class:

From time to time I'll post some of my practice pieces so I can see my growth.

Happy quilting!
(I'm posting from my phone in hopes of posting much more frequently) :)


  1. Hi Dara,
    Your fmq is excellent. The stitches are even, the curves are smooth, it is beautiful quilting. I just bought Ann Fahl's books "Dancing with Thread" and "Painting with Thread", your fmq looks like you are dancing with thread. Bravo! Good Job!

    1. Thanks so much Tammy! I'm going to check out her books.


I love comments!
