Okay, a lot going on right now. I have to take my mother to radiation treatments on June 3rd. My mother and I are taking a trip next weekend to my cousin's son's wedding. And we are winding down the end of school! So, I haven't had much time lately, but hope to start back on my Zinnias this weekend.

My free motion foot came in this week! YAY! So, I want to get to the sewing machine and stitch. Then putting the batting in to quilt.

I ordered this book today. It should be in on Wednesday. It shows many stitches you can use with free motion quilting. I am excited about that!

Thank you!

Okay, I finished up all the material. Now, I am going it use my fabric markers to give the flowers more depth. Once I finish that, I will put in the batting and start my free motion quilting!

I much doubt I will make my deadline for this month. Or make the challenge, but I sure have enjoyed the time I have spent going thru the process of making my first attempt at Art Quilting!

Oh my gosh!! That's awesome! I would never have believed that you could do so much with fabric.

Oh Keeo, it is so much fun! 'Course I have not made it to the quilting yet!

Didn't you say GammyKate does sewing? Has she ever done this? Or quilting with machine?

As far as I know, she has never done any quilting. She has, however, sewn through some odd thicknesses, so quilting should not be an issue for her. I'll see if I can get her on here to talk to you about it a bit.

Wow!! Lots of detail. Are you coloring them in or adding more fabric?
