Making Connections Winner and Video!

The Making Connections Blog Hop is officially over, and I have a winner for a copy of Dorie Hruska's book, Making Connections - A Free Motion Quilting Workbook

Drum roll please - 
The winner, as chosen from all of the Rafflecopter entries, is...

Vicki in MN!

Congratulations Vicki - I know you'll love this free motion quilting book! 

Not a winner here? You could still win from one of the other hop participants - look for an email or the announcement on their blogs.

I really have enjoyed both the book, the hop, and especially the quilting. From the straight line quilting on the prints, to the quilting in the negative space,

to the motif in the squares - everything a perfect fit.

Want to see that motif in the square stitched out? Then check out this free motion quilting video from my Youtube channel, with close up stitching of the design, including the curl and leaf. 

Easy, effective, and a perfect design choice to compliment the rest of the quilting.

And in case you're wondering about those blue lines - they are there for reference only, and spritzed with water immediately after quilting.

Inspired with design possibilities? There's certainly a lot that can be done with a simple shape!

Happy Quilting!
