There are very few magazines I subscribe to these days. One, that I feel so valuable, that I do get is “Machine Quilting Unlimited”….awesome magazine!!!!! They, also, have an e-newsletter you can sign up for, if you go to their site here and share the necessary info. Now, why am I so excited???? They shared my quilted piece that I finished for Wendy Sheppard’s book (read more here) and wrote a super article (with link) about my post in their most recent April mailing!!! I am over-the-moon excited!!!

This is the little piece that has brought this about……Wendy's book project

I must share that I quilt/stitch because I must. It is the creative spirit within me that flows out in that art form. I am very humbled by their acknowledgement of this finish. My desire in this post is to share my overflowing joy with you, my dear bloggy friends, for it is you who inspire me in this journey and who have spoken so many kind words of encouragement along the way. “Thank you” seems so “feeble” but please know that I love you all and you have blessed and enriched me more than you will ever know. My desire is to share the excitement I feel about FMQ (free motion quilting) and enable others to take that first step on their path. Now,let’s go stitch…………….hugs………

      It still is a bit startling, given the recent evidence of large numbers of very talented FMQ I’ve seen on blogs, Fb, etc. It’s just amazing how this process has intrigued so many!!!!! (me, too, of course!!)
