Happy Valentine Day!

This it my Quiltie for my Febuary Fabric in Art Group
This is my first fabric postcard and my first time at free motion machine stitching. I have been wanting a new sewing machine and not having the cash on hand has allowed me to change my mind several times about which machine I must have. So last week I decided instead of spending $4,000 in the Brenina that I wanted I would invest $30 in my Kenmore and get a free motion foot. I was presently surprised to find out how easy it was and how nicely it worked. Last week I was home sick and discovered day time TV. I saw quilting show and they said to use a small amount of fabric glue to hold the fabric pieces in place. This worked great too.
Well today I am home from work because of blizzard so I am off to make some more postcards too bad I didn’t start earlier so send them this year.
