New Year, New Series: Filler Finesse in Machine Quilting Unlimited

2011 is starting off with a bang! The wonderful folks at Machine Quilting Unlimited asked me to write a series of six articles on filler designs and the first one has made its debut in the January 2011 issue.

I love the format that they asked me to follow. With stitch outs, diagrams, and a descriptive paragraph for each fill it provides you with several ways to learn how to create each design. As always there are plenty of wonderfully informative articles in this issue, including the cover article on Freida Anderson and articles on thread painting and complex feathers. I'm always amazed at how much information they are able to pack into each issue!

It's the rare year that we attend some super festive New Year's party. Despite that our New Year's Eve was quite wonderful. We were visiting relatives in Fort Worth, Texas and spent the day at Great Wolf Lodge playing Magic Quest. Here's what it takes to slay the dragon -

Sheer Determination!

After wards we were treated to this lovely sunset

The sky really was that color - I didn't modify it at all.

Several other exciting quilting related things are in the works, so stay tuned!
