Natalia's theme for this book tour is "It's A Family Affair". And I couldn't agree with her more!
My quilting journey started when I asked my mother to teach me to quilt right before I moved across the country with my husband for school. I knew I was about to be in for some lonely days and nights and thought it would be fun to have a hobby. (Who knew it would grow to this :) My mother taught me all the in's and out's of quilting and I loved that time we had quilting together.
Now I find that I have the wonderful opportunity to teach my daughter to quilt. Jessica is 7 and she is working on her first quilt. It is a joy to now share this skill with her!! (And if I am being honest, occasionally it is an exercise in patience:) The rest of the gang at home are such a huge support of my quilting journey! They inspire me daily and love me even when I am a little bit crazy! I couldn't ask for more!

Natalia's book is fabulous!! I have gone through it cover to cover and have bookmarked so many pages!! I love that the book begins with Machine Quilting Basics. How helpful to have a complete rundown on batting, thread selection, basting, ect. all in one place!
I went with the Single Circles and Ovals from the Borders and Sashing sections for my borders. My ovals aren't quite oval but they got better as I went along :)
Beginner's Guide to Free Motion Quilting is just that!! A fabulous guide to walk you through, give you confidence, and then expand your free motion quilting horizons!
