I've been challenged!!

A few days go, Pat from A little of this, and a little of Pat sent me 45 tumbler pieces she cut with the Accuquilt GO! that she was lucky enough to win from Accuquilt. She has issued a challenge for me to create something with these pieces. In the pic there are 9 of the 45 pieces, these are the colors I have to work with. In her note, she said I'm to turn them into something fun. Since she didn't give a deadline, I've got all the time in the world! ( I'll have something completed by this weekend.) Maybe add a border and turn it into a quilt for either Quilts For Kids or Project Linus .

Whats YOUR opinion???

I need your help. My mother-in-law is looking at buying a new sewing machine. She wants to try her hand at quilting. What would you look for in machine for beginning quilting & embroidery. She's looking for something in the $400 to $500 range.

I promise...

I follow upwards of 75 different blogs. Its really hard to keep up with each and every one. But I have determined that some of those 75 are no longer active, meaning their last post was over 6 months ago. I will be weeding those blogs out and focusing on those that are currently active. With this and the new direction of Flat Out Quilting , I promise to read your posts and to leave at least 1 comment a week. All to often, I read a blog and not leave a comment. I do enjoy all the blogs I read and want to make sure each author knows I'm still here and still reading. The inspiration and ideas I get from each blog is greatly appreciated.

A new direction....

I noticed this evening that in less than 30 days my little piece of blogland here at Flat Out Quilting will turn 1 year old. In the spirit of all things bloggy, watch for a new and improved FOQ. I promise to bring you more WIPs, some completed projects, a ton of WTHWITs, more humor and of course sarcasm (you know you like it!) and a give away or two.

Until then,
