Veterans!–Open Line Friday

The Eagle-Free Motion Quilting

Good Morning, Quilters!

Veterans Day is tomorrow– a day dedicated to all who serve or have served in our military.

On June 4, 1926, Congress passed a resolution that the “recurring anniversary of [November 11, 1918] should be commemorated with thanksgiving and prayer and exercises designed to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding between nations,”

Today on Open Line Friday, please salute your favorite veterans by telling us about them.

If you are a veteran, tell us about what branch of the military you served or where you were stationed.

From Doodle to Stitch


Doodles, Flowers
Good Morning, Quilters and Doodlers!

Last week, I traveled for the first time to Houston for Quilt Market and when we arrived we realized we were in for a special treat–the Astros were playing in the World Series just a few steps from our hotel!  The city was abuzz with Astro Fever and Quiltmania!   The streets were jammed with quilters carrying bags of fabric and notions and baseball fans sporting their teams colors.   The excitement and energy were palpable!

As I was doing a quilt demo and book signing, a reporter and camera crew came along.  They were doing a segment comparing quilting and baseball!  It is a fun, short video…see if you recognize my free motion quilting!?

TWENTY MINUTES QUILT EXERCISE

Do you remember this Doodle Lesson?  

We glued a piece of fabric to our notebook and used it to jumpstart a doodle design.

LilQuilter shared  this idea and the article from Machine Quilting Unlimited  

Take the doodle one step beyond.  Add the fabric slice to a quilt sandwich and quilt the design!

Have fun with this exercise.  Spend at least twenty minutes–the average amount of time it takes to move from left brain (logical and analytical) to right brain (intuitive).

See what develops!

What about YOU?

Do YOU ever just play and experiment with machine quilting?

What works for YOU?

We’d LOVE to hear!

Signed,

Little League Lori
