  2. The garland is charmng! I have been trying to find time to sketch but will be glad when Christmas activities are over and back to a routine. Thanks for sharing.

  3. having broke my right arm, of course, before Thanksgiving, drooling over all these inspirational holidays doodles make me more determined to start my physical therapy and get back to free motioning. thank you for all your creativity.

  4. I remember when I saw the Christmas packages, that they were rather simple. However, I knew you would add just the right touch in the next tutorial to really make them shine! I anxiously awaited what was to come.

  5. Definitely my New Years resolution….doing your tutorials. Usually my dilemma is deciding what type of quilting I should use. I also want to get more creative next year. Aloha from Maui.

  6. I USED to look in free motion books, but haven’t even glanced in their direction after coming upon your website. Your ideas put all those books to shame! Your creativity is endless and the step by step directions are awesome. Thank – you …..Thank – you.

  8. I hope you show us this entire piece. I’d like to see how all the designs work together. I don’t remember the one at the uppe right side. I’ll have to read some earlier posts. Still love that tree! Thanks for sharing with us.

  10. Your talent is amazing and the time and effort in being able to help all of us novices is so fantastic. Learn so much from your tutorials and just appreciate all your help

  11. These will be great for my Christmas quilt. I was hoping I would get the quilting done before Christmas this year but I only finished piecing the top. I’m happy now that I didn’t quilt it b/c I have more ideas for how to quilt it.
    Thank you for sharing these wonderful designs.

  12. I’m going to have to try the little row of packages, its just so darn cute! Love the little Christmas tree quilt. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  13. I admire your variety of festive samples. Could you comment on how you position yourself with the fabric? Do you work crossways so you see where you are going, up or down, predraw? Need some tips for the MOTION.
