Finally finding time........

I am finally finding time to post these pictures of my lastest project. Which is almost done now, but I have put it on hold to spend time with our out of town guest.
This is a table topper/wall hanging. I designed the pattern myself. I'm  not sure how well you can see the pattern lying there in the photo, but  this is a glimps into how I work. 

My new skill for this project is mitered corners! I and pretty happy with them. Not a difficult as one might think. Don't be afraid to try them. 

                Pining the last row of material and lining up my end points.

Oh second new thing for me which was a bit more of a challenge that I thought this wonderful idea of getting some golden thread paper and free motion quilting.  This would be better if I understand my machine better. I have asked around with no luck of help.  So I am not sure if my machine is not working right or if it is supposed to try and take over when sewing. Either way I need more practice. Not to bad for my first try.

This is pretty much as far as I got before our company came so I will update everyone as soon as they go home and I can work on it.
