Free Motion Quilting Challenge, Academy of Quilting, & Shop Hopping Florida Style

Above is my practice piece for the Free Motion Quilting Challenge January tutorial.  It has been a long time since I've done leaves.  I would like to thank Frances Moore  for a wonderful tutorial.

Want to learn more about quilting online?  I found the
Academy of Quilting!
Ruth is the teacher and owner of this web site.  The upcoming classes look great and best of all--you don't have to leave your sewing room to join in all the fun!

Above is a picture of a favorite quilt shop in Zephyrhills, Florida called Quilter's Quarters.  My Mom and I've visited this quilt shop the last few times I've been in Florida and it's always a pleasure doing business.  There are many samples in this store and my Mom had made a Diamond's Jubilee quilt because of the wonderful sample that was hanging on the wall last year.

Another must great quilt shop that I really enjoy stopping by is Quilts on Plum Lane located in Dade City.  They even let me take a picture of this vintage Singer sewing machine.  This store also has wonderful samples hanging up for inspiration.  Thank you for the great visit!

I'm running out of time so I will post more on my Florida adventures!

Happy Quilting!

Wozza....your FMQ is really beautiful and to think you have not done it in a while...LOL.

I have a singer almost like the one in your photo with the wooden case and all. Do you know if those go by a style or the featherweights?

Your FMQ looks terrific.

A trip to FL for quilt shopping looks like it would be fun.
