Im so glad I decided to listen to some quilting youtube while hand stitching this week.  I just have to share this link with you to Leah Day and her Free Motion Quilting designs.

I use my Brother walking foot all the time and now Ive bought one of these....

and a pair of quilting grippy gloves.  I cant wait to practice the designs that Leah Day has so generously talked about and demonstrated.  I think it will add a great dimension to my quilts.

Update on trampoline tshirt quilt.... well Im just hand sewing the final 3 sides of the final hem.  Ive decided to straight machine quilt along the binding.  This quilt is bigger than a queen size bed and I think that with the weight of it.... some added stability around the binding will be important.  Well it is for a customer and it will give me peace of mind that the quilt will last decades if I make sure all the sections are really well supported by quilting.  It wont add too much time to the finishing off.  My biggest enemy is the weather because I want to rinse out the quilt and need it dry of course to post.... fingers crossed.... Monday.
