FMQ Friday - Hitting the Road

free motion quilting | Leah DayIt's FMQ Friday and time to share what you've been busy with! For some reason this week's design Little Tongues was a huge hit:

While I was stitching it on video I decided on the fly to build up a huge single shape which stands out quite a bit from the others. I also messed up at one point and had to do a bit of fiddling to get a smaller shape to work out. Lol. I guess my mistakes make for good instruction!

In other free motion news, I'm heading to Greensboro today to visit with my dad and teach a workshop tomorrow. While packing, I folded up the quilts I'm bringing in a stack and had to shoot a picture.

I think I like the backs better than the fronts!

Also going on this weekend is a fantastic summer sale at Craftsy! I know I'm going to take advantage of these low prices and sign up for some classes on knitting and crochet I've been eyeing for awhile!

 Remember you have access to Craftsy classes FOREVER, so even if you're not in the mood to watch and follow along right now, you can always watch the class in 6 months, or 6 years, whenever it's right for you! I've just recently started watching Beyond Basics Broomstick Lace and I've been a student in that class since last October. You really can attend on your own time and at your own pace, so if you haven't given a Craftsy class a try, definitely consider it this weekend!

So what have you been quilting this week? Is the summer heat finally making you want to head inside and crank the air and quilt like there's no tomorrow? I know that's exactly what I plan to do as soon as I get home!

Simple rules for the FMQ Friday link up:
