Machine Quilting {Raymies' quilt}

I finished machine quilting this beautiful quilt for Raymie yesterday. 
She asked for an edge to edge pattern.
So I quilted Roses all over it. 
It turned out really nice!
Don't forget to sign up for the Hobo Block of the Month quilt. There are details here.
Also, there are still a few days left to enter to win the book More 90-Minute Quilts.

I have to tell you. I took a machine quilting class yesterday. The class was focused on quilting on the conventional machine. My hat goes off to every one of you that quilts on your conventional machine! You impress me! Kathleen and I quilted some little samples on the conventional and they were so bad that Kathleen threw them away. She wouldn't even let me take pictures of them. I'm thinking I'll stick with the long arm. :)

Happy Wednesday!

More 90-Minute Quilts {Book Review & Giveaway}

***Giveaway is closed***
More 90- Minute Quilts by Meryl Ann Butler is a fun, yet simple book.
The book features 20+ Quick and Easy Projects with Triangles and Squares. 
Perfect for a beginner.
Upon opening the book I was very impressed with a couple of things.
I love the clear illustrations. I am a visual person so all the images in this book are great!
Next thing I love is that it is spiral bound. I love that it lays flat. Makes the book very nice to work with.
The book also includes a lot of little tips. I think these are very helpful for everyone!
All in all I think it's a great book, very helpful to a beginner sewer.

Would you like to win your own copy?
I have a copy that I get to give away!
Simply become a follower of my blog.
Then leave a comment!
Winner will be announced April 1, 2011! No joke!

MIA

My husband and I took a little bit of time off over the last couple of weeks.
We had a lot of fun spending time together and enjoying views like this.
We had a great time and it was nice to realize what is important to us.
Tomorrow is back to quilting.
I'm so happy to be back to quilting and sewing, who would have thought that I could miss my sewing machine?!?!
