If wishes were fishes.....

............my quilting machine would be working properly right now. But, it's not - this is what I finished before I walked away this last week and took a break from quilting.  Oh, I haven't stopped doing things, does life ever slow down?  Probably not.
I am pretty sure Monday will be the day I get it all figured out with the machine.  That's the plan anyway. 

It is simple quilting, but oh so pretty.  I can not wait to finish.  It has been killing me to not work on it.  I have been productive this week, so that makes the break from quilting okay.  
 
I finished up the instructions for my newest quilt pattern Just Call Me Modern? - it was fun to figure out and the pattern is easy to follow and full of color.  I have it available in my shop as a paper and pdf pattern. I have pre-sold this pattern and those orders will be shipped out on Monday.  Those who would like to order now, please do.  It is such a fun quilt.  I also included instructions on how to draw and quilt the square motif throughout this quilt.  You can see all the quilting details on this fabulous quilt here

Well, have a wonderful weekend.  What's left of it anyway.  I plan on getting a little more done next week, but then enjoying the Thanksgiving holiday with friends and family.  I hope you are spending time with your loved ones during this wonderful time of year.

Sorry you are having problems with your machine. Sometimes it's just best to walk away from it. Good luck figuring it all out!

Fantastic quilt and quilting! I'm sure you will get your machine to co-operate for the rest of it. Gorgeous!

It's my first thanksgiving away from family I since I retired from the US Navy. But it's our first holiday in our new house in Arizona. Guess we should be grilling instead of roasting. Have a great holiday! Hope you don't get too much snow, but I'm sure the kiddies would love it.

It is so frustrating to have machine troubles...good luck tomorrow with it.

I LOVE that little border design that you do -- the one that looks like stuffed olives. That's what it looks like to me, anyway. Well, I have tried to do that "simple" quilting design myself and I can attest that it only looks easy when YOU do it! :-)

I hope your sewbaby is back to normal for you really soon. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, Judi!

I continue to be awed by your quilting skills!

Looking forward to the book! I just ordered my first long-arm machine today and it will be delivered next week. I have to say you have been such an inspiration and I hope to be able to quilt half as well as you! Happy Thanksgiving!

I just got my copy of Quilting Wide Open Spaces in the mail. Love it. Just flipped through it and was so impressed with the designs and the backgrounds. I love, love, texture in my quilts. And I love butterflies and there were some quilted ones on the cover.
