Friday Night Sew In Results: Thread Doodling, Studios Magazine Article, and Happy Father's Day

 Sometimes I just need to play around doodling on my sewing machine and that is what I did for the Friday Night Sew In.

 It gave me some free motion practice and a nice potholder made from an extra quilt block that I didn't know what to do with.

My sister did it again!  She has an article in Cloth, Paper, Scissors "Studios" Magazine called 
"Quilting With Mom And Me".  I do not own a copy at this moment, but I did have the opportunity to read the article--she even mentioned me!  

Every quilter needs a Dad to inspire and I'm blessed with a Dad that does wonderful artwork with his scroll saw.  He always is there to support our family.

Happy Father's Day Dad and thank you for being there for me!

Happy Quilting!

Kay Lynne

That's one sharp-looking dad and Farmall!

Kay Lynne, your "doodling" is awesome. What a great way to use a leftover block, practice your skills, and make something useful to boot!
