Get It Done

Lately I have been in a get it done mood.  I feel a feverish need to finish some of those projects that have been sitting around for well, a long time.  I have one that is three years old.   The very sad part is that it was a gift that is now three years late!  Yikes!  I did however have to slip in a baby shower gift.  I found some fun fabric on a recent visit to California that seemed just perfect.  I did not piece this quilt as I wanted to focus on some actual quilting techniques.  The pattern I used comes from Free Motion Quilting with Angela Walters.  This is a great book. I highly recommend it if you are giving free motion quilting a try.  She does a great job of walking you through how to make the patterns.  I recommend sketching the patterns as suggested its worth the time!

My patterns always turn out a bit more organic than those presented in the book.  Bu,t I like them.  They are all mine!  Don't you just love those vintage looking princesses riding a dragon?  This is the stuff of my fairy tale!
