The quilting lines on that golden tone in the lower right corner make me think of an aerial view of desert sand dunes.
thanks! That one is one of my fave's those lines are about 1/8" apart... hehe. :) great texture!
This is amazing...I want more closes up of the quilting! really blows my mind to see such FMQ!
Wow and then some. I spent most of the night reading up on FMQ at this great site Caribousmom had recommended (A few Scraps.com) and then to see this inspirational project makes me want to hole up and try it for a week straight. I'm kind of compulsive that way! But I've got all these kids coming home for the summer so it's going to be busy. There's always the Fall! On to your blog.....
I just went to your blog and looked at all of this FMQ up close...amazing and love the pictures of all the ways to use the different colors!
:) Thanks guys! - feel free to start following the Parade - it's pretty easy to win the prizes since we're giving away yards every day -- and there's still another week and a half - and two guest posters to go!
Terry if you're interrested in FMQ check out this book (http://www.amazon.com/365-Free-Motion-Quilting-Designs/dp/147749054X/?qid=1339175098&s=books&ref=sr_1_3&ie=UTF8&sr=1-3) and her website -- the book is very new and I haven't seen it but can wholeheartedly recommend it based on my knowledge of Leah's website. (http://freemotionquilting.blogspot.com/) Also there's a ton of info/inspiration/FMQ tips and tutorials here on the pinterest board I've been curating.

Wow, this is such an inspiration project you are doing! I LOVE that house block...so great. Can't wait to see this one all pieced together...
Meant: Inspirational - its been a long day!
OMG - just checked out her site - fascinating...and the video tutorials are awesome. I think I need to buy her book!
I have been watching her videos all weekend and reading her blog...she is amazing!
Thanks guys! :) did you guys see how she altered a cheap FMQ foot to make it better? It's fabulous - and especially great because my foot "broke" but in a good way. :) ...that video is pinned on the pinterest inspiration board linked up there. :)
Emedoodle is this by any chance Leah Day that you're referring to? I just found her last night and stayed up til 2 watching her you tube videos. Amazing that we're all ending up at the same place, if it is her....
lol yep that Leah Day! :) she's fabulous. I wonder if she knows that we're all up late talking about her.
