Day Style Designs

So in the process of doing my everyday business I came in contact with Leah Day, creator of the website Day Style Designs. She has decided to carry our Gidget sewing table on her website. But before she did, I started looking at her website... and WOW - I was impressed. Leah has started a blog 365 days of free motion quilting. Now you know how I am - what the heck is free motion quilting? So I did some research, aka I googled: "what is free motion quilting." After getting a few textbook definitions I went back to her website with a better understanding of what she's doing, and its nothing short of extraordinary. Each day, for one year, Leah is creating a new free motion design, video taping it and sharing it with everyone online. And let me tell you, this is definitely not for beginners like myself. I made a table runner last summer and I thought that was hard. Some of her designs are so awesome and creative, you have to check them out - like the Day 104 - the Paisley Flower (top). Obviously a more advanced piece. !!!!!! That's the only way I can describe it. Some day I hope to try out some of her beginning designs, but I have a few more table runners to practice on before that happens. Another one I loved was the Tree Roots - Day 12 (bottom). It has a bit of an eery or mysterious feeling to it but that's what I love about it. I am anxious to check out her designs each day - great job Leah :) If you haven't already check it out and feel free to leave a nice comment.
