There used to be a store near here where they sold little stones with happy faces on them. I would keep them in a dish and when a client wanted a quick fix, I would just hand them a magic stone!!! So wonderful...but, alas when I needed them, they were all gone. So when Iris showed up at Guild with a quilt with wonderful free motion quilting, I wanted to know how to do that and fast. I didn't know that Iris knew how to do that...I wanted not to be left behind! Hmm was I hoping a bolt would hit me from the sky..yup...or maybe there would be a new magic pill?? yup... But, that was not to be. As today came to an end and the Habitat guy was getting ready to go, I found an orphan block that I had been going to make into a pot holder. The light bulb in my head came on and I decided to practice free motion quilting on that potholder. I emphasize the word practice, because I think that is really the answer. I am delighted and here is my result:.
