I belong to a group on the web which is teaching and challenging us at the same time to be a better quilter. I have so much fun at this group I am so glad I joined it and am showing some of you what I have been up to. We have a different Tutor each month and what they get us to do is pretty amazing. I have learnt so much from them this year. I don't know why the writing has gone in the middle of the pictures??? Very strange. Anyway, this idea is to make us a better quilter as I say and to prove that what can be done on a LongArm machine can also be done on a domestic machine, and some of the ladies have done absolutely fantastic work, I am getting there slow but sure, I am enjoying myself enormously in the process of all this learning, I shall be quite sad when it all ends in December.
These are just a few of the samples I have made recently for the September and October challenges. I hope you enjoy looking at them. I wasn't quite sure what to class it under hope I have chosen the right catagory!!

Amazing! The silk really shows off the texture. Is the one Katy flagged free motion? I will have to find a class like this... I currently have 5 types of quilting in my repertoire, all free motion- straight lines, stippling, echoed swirls, thread sketching and writing (to wildly varying degrees of neatness...). I'd love to try drawing a design and then quilting over it to produce some of those fantastic feather circles like you have done!
