WIP Wednesday-Umbrella Quilts

Free Motion Quilting, Umbrellas,

The weather in Minnesota has been, well…miserable!  The temperature has hovered between 20-and 35 degrees F all month and we’ve had three days of snow this week...When it isn’t snowing—it’s raining!  The good news…I’ve had a lot of time to quilt!

But even when I’m quilting…

I’m thinking about the weather!

Free Motion Quilting, Umbrellas,

I am still getting to know my new sewing machine…(Read more here)

And I find it has a different “feel” than my old machine–and a different sound, too!  Isn’t funny how one gets used to the sound of the machine…

I added some “wind” to the umbrella quilts… and in a note of optimism, I stitched flowers in the blue quilt.

Now I wish they would magically bind themselves…

Next week’s Tuesday Tutorial:  Open and Closed Umbrellas

Also, I have had a few requests to do a tutorial on The Flame stitch which is a part of the Fleur de lis motif from yesterday’s tutorial.  Watch for that soon.

If you like the tutorials, please do me a favor….send warm and sunny thoughts this way!

  1. Just found your blog and I’m really enjoying it. Your umbrellas with the wind are so much fun, and look like our weather in southeast South Dakota!

  2. Oh, dear – not much warmth to send your way from here! I just came in from snapping some shots of the coyote tracks in yesterday’s snow. . . Love your umbrella quilts!

  3. I would be happy to bind any and all of your quilts- just send them my way…. but will you get them back????

  4. Wowza! Beautiful quilting! I’m still trying to get the hang of FMQ– too chicken to try it on an actual quilt yet.
    Your work is quite inspiring (I’m wishing for warmer weather here in Ohio too!)

  5. Yes, I am in ND and we have been getting the same weather. Unfortunately it hasn’t lead to more quilting time for me. Love your quilting
