Stumbled upon this rather brilliant blog by Leah Day with Free motion Videos and designs.
Leah has a project, to create a new free motion quilting design every day for a whole year.
So far she is up to Day 27 - Lightning Bolt,
You can catch up with Leah here, http://www.freemotionquilting.blogspot.com/ ,
now I have not had time to look at every days design so far. but they all seem to have a tutorial video, clear concise and easy to follow.
Each days post has a difficulty level, an explanation on directional texture and suggestions for use.
This site is a wonderful tool for anyone wanting to learn Free Motion quilting. I've got myself some sandwiched homespun and I'm off to practice day one here at
Will show you my results at next weeks meeting, may even post a pic or two on the blog.

Sad news in an e-mail from Scquilter Michelle Watters.
Narelle Grieve, who had been ill for many months, passed away in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Narelle was a well know tutor and quilter, her quilts were in many shows and magazines. She was a past President of the Quilters' Guild of N.S.W.
I never had the pleasure of meeting Narelle, but have always admired her work and from time to time got a giggle out of some of her stories.
Erica Spinks has a lovely tribute and story about Narelle on her blog, Creative Dabbling at http://creativedabbling.blogspot.com/
Sew Inspirational has Narelles Profile on their site here http://www.sewinspirational.com.au/Summer_2008/inspirational/profiles for anyone who may be interested to learn more of this wonderful lady
