Oh, baby, baby . . . .

I guess spring is the time for babies - out here by Water Valley, all the little calves are enjoying the spring weather and some of the migrating birds are back - still waiting for a robin  tho.  I know the hummingbirds won't return til close to the end of May.   The geese are flying overhead scouting out the best nesting sites - I wonder if we will have one on the hay bales again this year?

I had 5 baby quilts to get Freeda broken in - and I have to say - I LOVE Freeda!  What do I love about her??  - tension is perfect, motion is smooth as butter, M bobbin lets me go forever without a bobbin change, handles are ergonomically perfect for me, controls in just the right spot, the automatic power advance saves so much time and energy . . . I could go on and on - really, I could . . . but I better show you my baby quilts instead.  They are just cute and simple - just what I needed to get the feel of the new machine.

Gwen made these three little quilts - Freehand designs, Fil-tec Glide thread top and "M" bobbin (!)

Freeda's looking right at home . . . .

Have a peak at these cute little appliqued quilts - one for a special little girl, and one for a special little boy  - Freehand designs in the appliqued blocks, continuous curves in the rest; Fil-tec Glide thread.

Locating Little House Creations with Freeda (the longarm) into Addies Creative Fabrics has been a great move!  People are very interested in the machine, how it works, and excited about getting their quilt tops completed - all in all it's been a very positive experience!

I have at least 10 quilts in the que - so I'll be kept busy over the next few weeks until I can devote my time fully to quilting - right now I am committed to another project for a few more weeks.  Happy Spring and here's to new beginnings!
