Week in Progress #32

Hey all! Thanks for stopping by. If you didn't know already I am having a giveaway for some digital scrapbook software. Go check it out and enter the giveaway.

Completed Projects: 
My Memories Suite projects. It can be used for more than just scrapbooks. Here is a great way to use the software to plan quilt blocks. This is my block plan for the 4 x 5 modern block swap.

Continuing Projects:
I took another class on free motion quilting. Why does everything always seem to go wrong when you are in a class. Here are a quilting sandwiches.

FWQ practice stippling

If I gained anything it was that my tension and timing are much better.

I however, really, really did not get the whole stone thing. Mine look more like grapes.

  1. Yea Jennifer! You have Embroidery 101 blocks! I saw she posted a new stitch this morning which means a new block is coming up soon.
    I have tried FMQ as well. I really think it's going to take some practive. I tried to do meandering/stippling but I crossed over. I had no intentions of pulling it out so it just became loops.

  2. Jenn,

    Take a look into Teflon bobbin washers. They are little plastic rings you put into you bobbin housing and it helps stop that thread from backlashing when you start.

    Just an idear.


Thank you for taking the the time comment. Please know that I read each comment and they all make me smile.

Thanks for visiting, Jenn
