Finished - Pirate Quilt and Wacky Birdhouse Pillow

Finished stitched projects for the month of February

Susie's Wacky Birdhouse

Love My Pirate Lap Quilt

In keeping with my New Year's resolutions to organize and challenge myself, I thought it would be motivating to continue to test my skills at free motion quilting.  Not wanting to make the project too big, I decided on making a tablecloth with a quilted strip down the middle.  Here are some beginning pictures using some of  Dear Stella's beautiful Piper fabric collection to be the centerpiece of the tablecloth.

My favorite so far - Zig Zag
One thing I've learned so far, is patience and keep practicing!  Back to stitching...
