THIS IS THE END

I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about this project and I've finally come to a decision...


THIS IS THE END.


153 different designs is really more than enough for us all to enjoy! I'm very proud of my accomplishment, but 365 really was a ridiculous goal to set.

So to all you free motion quilting addicts out there who have enjoyed the project from beginning to end, I'm very sorry!

I just can't do it anymore. I'm just really needing to seek a new hobby, maybe scrapbooking, that will allow my inner artist to emerge.

So until we meet again,

Go Quilt!

  2. This better be an April's Fools Day joke or you are very cruel.

  3. It is a shame to stop now....you were doing so well... perhaps you need just a little help...so to all you followers out there how about we send in our own original ideas so that Leah may use them...

  5. I have enjoyed your quilting designs, thank you for sharing them. Of course, as soon as you say "no more" your mind will probably sneak in with new ideas!

  6. Um, this would now be where you say "April Fools!", right? Because really, that's what we are all holding our breath for. Seriously. Waiting. Haven't heard you yell yet. Please?

  7. Now is this an April's Fool joke?? If it isn't that's ok also. I've enjoyed your blog and your adventures:)

  8. Hmm, I'm thinking April Fool's Day has struck. I really can't picture you scrapbooking unless you could stitch down the photos, LOL!

  9. I was thinking that I hope it is an April Fool's joke, but on the other hand, I can't imagine doing as much as you have done. . .
    not sure what to think.
    Sad if it is TRUE, and yet supportive. But not "til we meet again" I won't accept that. You are way too creative to just stop blogging. I don't want to lose touch.
    It can't be true. What about your wonderful store????

  14. ????
    I can understand your concerns regarding fufillng the 365 design and full appreciate that you'd want to call a halt to it on a high but I do sincerely hope that you will keep sharing your quilting journey with us all - you inspire and advise us in ways that are so so more down to earth and understanding than others.
    Please don't disappear completely.

  15. You're kidding, right? C'mon...you can't be serious. You turned me into a Free Motion groupie and then you dump me? I'm so sad...
    PS. When I read your post I was LMAO; and then it hit me that maybe you weren't kidding. HMMM. I'll wait till tomorrow and check in again. HMMMM.

  16. This has to be April Fools! Scrapbooking instead of quilting?

    If it's not, at least start a new blog to keep us updated on your so interesting creativity. :):)

  17. It is April 1st - although here in Australia it is now April 2nd. Will wait and see......

  18. I'm sure you won't be leaving your quilting forever! Thanks for sharing so much with us all :)

  19. Joke or not - I would love to follow all of your quilting accomplishments in the future :)

  20. You have given a lot of people a lot of pleasure but there is no need for it to take over your life. Thanks for the experience. I have really enjoyed the ride and look forward to seeing what you work on next.

  21. Just as I found your site and became interested in the free motion quilting ... although I think I have enough designs to choose from. But hopefully this is an April fool's joke as Natalie also think it is?

  22. What do I look like, an April Fool?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Leah I am so sorry to see you leave. You have been an inspiration. Good luck in your future projects.

  24. I don't know how you have managed to think of 153 different designs, let alone 365! You are an amazing woman, but at some point we all have to say enough is enough and get our life back into perspective :0)
    Don't feel disheartened at having to give up on your quest, you have your dvd's if you need to add any designs that you haven't shared so far and I eagerly await to see what you do next :0)
    Take care hun and happy quilting :0)
    *hugs* Heather x

    Happy April Fools Day-
    Now GO QUILT! :)

  27. I'm with Natalie on this one. Scrapbooking??? If it's not a joke I will miss your enthusiasm and all your wonderful designs. You are an inspiration to so many of us out here.

  30. Yeah, right. What happened to 365? You owe me more quilt designs...lol.

    I hope this was an April Fool's joke.

  31. Joke or No, you have created a wealth of designs for quilters and have personally grown in doing so....you can't help but grow when you push yourself with monumental goals.
    GREAT JOB!!

  32. Oh, of my many blogs, you are the one I look forward to seeing every day! I am spending this afternoon cruising your designs to choose the one for my next project!

    But I understand you must do what works for you.
