I found this wonderful, most awesome, truly informative, and very very very.......amazing site from visiting "That man's quilts".....he suggested a site that is totally awesome and I just have to share it with you.....can you tell I am jumping in my seat?

Can you tell that I am thinking faster than I can type?

Can you tell that my heart is beating faster than I am typing (I can type pretty fast)....Can you just tell???? CAN YOU!!!

If you are wanting to learn how to do different designs in free motion quilting besides just stippling you really really really....yes, really should go here, it is called Day style designs.....go now...

don't shower,

don't stop to eat,

drink or

go to the bathroom....just go!!!

You will be just as excited as I am...well...maybe not.

Thanks quilt fool!!

I just read your interview on Micki's blog and enjoyed it very much! Lovely to have met you.
Gelukkig Nieuw Jaar! All the best wishes for you and your family.

PS: Thank you for the lovely link. Free motion quilting is one of the things I want to learn in this new year, so the link will definitely help me (O:

I love her site too. Hi Barb, I just read your interview with Micki and I'm glad to finally meet you. I've seen you in many blogs and I should have come and visited you long time ago, but too many blogs with little time to visit them all. BUT here I'm now after reading your interview. I have done similar things you are doing. Copy down designs and patterns from place I've visited. I also love travelings.

PS: I was Micki's April star

Barb I use Leah's site all the time. I sent it to you along with the other free motion site.
She has a pattern a day and also sells her informative videos.
Have fun with it.

I saw the free motion site you posted a few weeks ago and have watched several of her videos. She's great! I love free motion quilting, but haven't gotten much past improving my stippling. 8-)

Happy New Year,
Susan in TexaS
