FMQ Friday - Sneak Preview on the Month Ahead

It's Free Motion Quilting Friday and I know we have tons to catch up on! What am I doing today? Shooting videos, editing, and quilting up a storm on Express Your Love:

When will you be caught up on all this fun stuff? Somewhere around the end of April!

I'm feeling the need to get ahead a good bit because this time of the year always gets crazy with James in and out of school, work on the house being done, designing a brand new website, and of course, spring fever and the desire to get my hands dirty in the garden!

So what are you up to today? I hope you're quilting something gorgeous!

Simple rules for the FMQ Friday link up:

1. Link up with a post that features something about Free Motion Quilting (FMQ).
2. Somewhere in your post, you must link back here, or you can just post the FMQF button in your sidebar.
3. Comment on at least a few of the other FMQF links. Share your love of free motion quilting and make this weekly link up a fun way to connect!

Let's go quilt,

  1. Leah, I noticed that you have quilted her body. What did you do? It looks very textured.

  2. The quilt is fantastic! Thank you so much for your lovely blog!
    Happy Easter! :)
    Hugs, Ulla (Ulla's Quilt World)

  3. LAQuilts - She is trappliqued, but I also did an extra step of adding Texture Magic under the fabric and steaming it to get extra texture. It's not something you have to do, but the fabric was already crinkly so I figured why not?! Let's just hope it all satin stitches out okay on the edges!
