FMQ Rule #1

Free Motion Quilting Rule #1.....
NEVER sew a stitch that is too small to be ripped out!  
Learned that one the hard way.
I'm working on a darling baby quilt for my niece.
 I was doing free motion on the bear and decided it didn't look right... 
The picture says it all:


I've always used the seam ripper and trimmer shears for undoing the mistakes...
My new favorite tools include tweezers and the tape roller for picking up the
tiny pieces of thread.

Didn't really accomplish what I wanted to... Off to the grocery store.

Ghastlies Sneak Peek...

I've just finished my Ghastly project for the Blog Hop over at Madamme Samm's
beginning  October 24th. I'll be featured with other blogs on November 2nd. 
Here's the sneak peek of my project....

 Any ideas on what I might be making???

It's functional, chic, and I will use it often, especially through the Holiday Parties coming up.

Such fun fabric to work with. Love the pea green soup background color.

I may need a new LBD... (little black dress!)


Hugs to all,
Mary
