Friendship Star

My very first actual, usable quilt is finished! Actaully it has been for a while I just hadn't posted a picture of it yet :) Still waiting for my background fabric to come in so I can get my pinwheel quilt done. I might look for it elsewhere!

Catching Up

Well, unfortunately my pinwheel quilt has been but on hold for a bit. I ran out of the back ground fabric for the sashing and as luck would have it the quilt shop is out of it and it's on back order:( Hopefully it comes in soon because I'm excited to get it done.
On another note, thanks to this little beauty I'll be able to get a few other projects finished!! This was my Mothers Day gift and I absolutely love it! Nice even stitches, dropping feed dogs, lots of extras, including a quilters accessory package with everything I need, and it's soooo quiet!!

The first project to get finished is my friendship star quilt. It took some practice (ok, a lot) but I finally got the hang of the free motion quilting! It's not perfect, I have some sharp points and some loops I didn't want in there, but overall I'm happy with it.

I love how the back looks!
