Let the Games Begin!

 
Well the Olympics have begun! Yahh! I am lucky that my sewing nook has a hole in the wall so I can view the action as I sew! See the horse in the background? The dressage event just confuses me, making the horse do all those maneuvers around. Is that a skill worthy of the Olympics? If its about controlling an animal, what about including sheep dog trials??

But anyway, I am quilting two table runners. I unpicked the three panals of this quilt and have made it into two runners. I wasn't happy with the design of that quilt, don't know what I'll do with the third panal. I'm doing "organic line" quilting on these, using my free motion foot to do lines instead of the walking foot. Its fun! In one of them I am doing pebble quilting, and the other is more lines. Back to the games!

I don't think that you are the only person that does not understand dressage. Equestrian is one of my favourite sports. Just wait until the individual grand prix dressage later in the games, if you are confused by this dressage, wait until you see the fancy moves that the real dressage riders can do.

Please explain organic line quilting? I like the look so what is different from using a walking foot over free motion? I'm a FMQ newbie so I have lots of questions.

Enjoy that long arm as its heading my way come Christmas. And could you imagine Cate's glee if they let sheep dog trials be an olympic sport??
