It's day 27 of my 31 Day Challenge.  It was a long day today with waking up early for "Lowe's".  I finally started quilting at about 6:30 tonight.  I did get one row done and will for sure finish it tomorrow.  It takes about 15 minutes per row.



 I'm doing a freehand overall swirl and think it's fitting for this Christmas quilt.

Here are some of my samples I did up while at the quilt shops this week.  It felt like I was sewing curves for the first time because I was sewing standing up on a machine I've never used before!  


...and I found this beautiful linen fabric with a polka dot at the Needle and I here in Everett.  

 I can't wait to use it and hopefully soon!

The kids and I are heading to Utah on Thursday and as I'm sitting here, I just realized that my 31 days ends on Friday!!  ....so..since this is my challenge I think I'm allowed to change the rules just a bit, so after I get back from Utah I'm going to continue my challenge for 8 more days.  The two days I'll miss for going out of town, the 4 Sundays I took off and the 2 days I missed for demoing at the Quilt Shops.  I still have tomorrow and Wednesday though!
