@ the Quilt Palace today

Valentines necklace....

free motion quilting...






We warmed up with a bit of McTavish quilting...

After Lunch...


We put on the ruler foot and played with

machine quilting with rulers...






Cross Hatching with Rulers...






Then we jumped right into feathers...






Feathered Heart...




Double Feathered Heart...









At the end of the day we made up a few kits:


Pre-fused shapes were die cut...





We prepared a dozen note card kits.

These will be used in a P2P presentation

@ Good Samaritan Hospital in Corvallis

later this month.



Invite your friends over for...

 a day of PLAY!





"Having learned the rules, we can decide for ourselves when to follow them and when to color outside the lines. Today is a great day to choose to listen to inspiration and let your inner child come out to play. This decision is harder for some people than it is for others, so when we make the bold choice to follow our hearts and inner guidance, we actually help others to make the same choice.  

We can teach by example, allowing friends and strangers to see how we light up when we shine our light, and how others respond as well. Although not everyone will approve, there will be those who will lend support and encourage such unfettered demonstrations of life. 

Those who are attracted to our light are the kindred spirits we should keep around us at all times, but if we don't let our unique sparkle be seen, those spirits may have a difficult time finding us. As we express ourselves freely and joyously today, we allow ourselves to be shining examples and beacons for kindred souls."

What fun! I was doing some free motion quilting years ago, just doodling and it was fun. I haven't done any doodling lately and your post has reminded me to go for it again. I love that white on white feathered heart!
