And yet one more!

Yes, I have managed to finish another lesson in Christina's class, The Essentials of Free Motion Quilting, on Craftsy.  I love learning on this platform.   You see, I did this section late at night on my own schedule.  And if I need to go back and watch a section - or the entire class - again, I can do that for as long as I am able.   Once you purchase a class, you get lifetime access.

So, in this class we did curves and flowers and radiant designs.  I love the flowers.
Rather than use thread that blends, I am (mostly) using contrasting thread so I can really see what I have done.  But, I left the yellow thread throughout this piece so on the yellow fabric it does disappear.
Part 4 of the set for these lessons 
There are four flowers/radiant designs in the yellow part of the middle block. If you click on it, you may be able to make them out.  I really love the texture that the "S" curves make.  Check it out on the left block in the yellow section.

When I finish this, I think  I will be ready to tackle an entire quilt -when I  have time.  I really thought that retirement would be all "Oh I want to do this today, so that is what I am doing."  Ha!  Suddenly, I have a million things to do.

Have a great week.  I will try to post again at least once this week.

I like your S-curves in the yellow wedge - makes for some GREAT texture!! Wish I had thought to sash my blocks like you did - ;)) And I had to laugh at your retirement line - I often wonder how in the world I ever managed to work, do all of my chores and still find time to sew/quilt - but then I was much younger then and I had a lot more energy - ;))

A common complaint about retirement -- the days are not long enough. Love the yellow flower! You don't need a garden, just sew up what you want. :)

your quilting is amazing. I took a feather class from Craftsy and loved it.

I love this flower! That motif would look awesome on a whole cloth quilt if you did each flower in a different color.

Don't you love online classes?! I'm taking one with Gyleen Fitzgerald through Annie's right now and it's great being able to do it on my time frame!
