Aqua Red Pillow

 I finally got a chance to make a pillow for our couch. I wanted to brighten up our familyroom a bit so I used an aqua red color combo from my stash. This is one of my favorite color combos. As usual, I am still playing with free-motion quilting. I am learning a lot from trial and error and it's been sew much fun.

Sewvivor - Lily Patch Quilts

I came across this Sew-Vivor competition a few days ago, I can't remember from where and have been thinking about it. I have finally decided to join in and see what happens. I love to challenge myself so this will help to push me out of my comfort zone and do something different. 

This year the competition is quilt related and now that I have my longarm machine, it's going to be so fun to be able to finish my projects in a timely manner. No more UFOs for me. The entry says I can use any previous project so I am going to enter my Row By Row quilt that I just completed last week.

Scrappy Table Runner

Hello Monday! I am on a roll! I am still practicing free-motion quilting and getting the hang of my quilting machine. I had some small pieces of batting left so I loaded up the small scrappy table runner and practiced doing feathers. I just sort of winged it. Overall I think it's ok accept for some tight spots.
