This past week has had a lot of different things going on. First, I did manage to finish two of the Splendid Sampler blocks, 17 and 19, and got started on Block 20. I still have a ways to go to catch up, but I'm not worried about it .
Blocks 17 and 19
Block 20 in the works
Earlier in the week I practiced a lot of free motion quilting trying to get used to my new sewing machine. First a spent time on some wild quilting and then I drew out some ideas on a practice sandwich for my Night Flight wall hanging. Below is a glimpse of that practice session. I need to do a lot more practicing before I actually put the wall hanging under the needle. Night Flight needs to be completed no later than May 24th.
On Saturday I was back at Sew Yeah Quilting for a trunk show by Christa Watson. Oh my gosh, she had all her quilts form both of her books and it was great to see them up close and personal. I have had her first book on my Kindle for awhile, and now I have her second book, which was co-authored with Angela Walters, in hardback and signed by both authors. Christa is an amazing quilter, author, and speaker. One day I hope to have the opportunity take one of her classes. She will be at Quilt Con 2017 and I'm hoping to be there too.
I missed out on posting Sunday as I didn't take my computer down to Las Vegas. Today, I'm linking up with Linky Tuesday over at Freemotion by the River.
