While out walking I found this beautiful leaf just waiting for me to make a quilting design from <grin> I had to pick it up and carefully carry it home, being an autumn leaf it was rather delicate. I love the colors in it, but more importantly, it was the ideal design that I was looking for to quilt on the quilt I'm currently working on.

This photo is one I pulled out of my files, taken quite some time ago. I just love the design along the freeway. I could really see this as a creative design in a whole quilt, not just a quilting design, but today I am quilting.

I finally found a way to download photos from my old phone. Always wondered how I could do that! In the process I found a photo to use for today's quilting inspiration. I'm sure you will recognize this icon.

If you are a follwer of my blog you will probably know by now that I have a great passion for Hoffman Fabrics. I was recently making a quilt with Bali Pops and charm squares and the design in one of the fabrics started me thinking "What a great quilting inspiration this is".

Sweet! I'm up to 39 days of quilting. That means I have quilted each week for 39 weeks in a row, just 13 days left to complete an entire year of quilting weekly. What fun. Talking about sweets, my favorite sweet (or candy as known in America) are hard boiled sweets. I am particularly found of Coffee Werthers.

One of my favorite things to do is machine quilting. If you haven't tried it before, then you are missing out. I have been machine quilting now for many years and love making new designs to practice and include in my quilts, but not only that, I also have a passion for teaching others how to machine quilt successfully. In fact, I have an online class that takes you from the very beginning of how to layer your quilts through various straight quilting techniques and onto free-motion.

Back to the garden I go for machine quilting ideas. I love the shape of these leaves and the color is great too, just different than the usual green shades.

Christmas is just around the corner and Fall is close for those in the Northern hemisphere so Anita's pattern Angels or Angles is a really good choice for everyone. It is all patchwork triangles that can be made into a scrappy fall quilt...
