This Fish O'Rainbow quilt measures 52" x 72" and, with the addition of a simple border or two, it would make a fabulous children's quilt. You could practice stitching straight lines where you wanted them OR use the lines as markings to evenly space some free motion squiggles. I especially like all the pearl strings printed on this panel, because I definitely need practice making ROUND pearls instead of SQUARE pearls on my longarm machine!

This is the other "Just Quilting Kit" from Thimble Lady that intrigued me:

Meanwhile, I'm continuing to practice developing muscle memory for quilting designs on my iPad during church sermons:

Would you like to know how much actual sewing in real life I have accomplished since my last post? I sewed ONE WHOLE SEAM yesterday. I did laundry, got clean sheets on the beds, went for a walk with my sweetie, and had a VOX choir rehearsal starting in on the Christmas Lessons and Carols music. But I managed to seam two lengths of backing fabric together and trim away the selvages before I left for choir. That's the nice thing about having a dedicated studio. If I only have a few minutes, I can sneak off to my studio and just sew for a few minutes. If I was working on my dining room table, by the time I got the sewing machine out and set up it would be time to put everything away again!
I have high hopes for today, though. I've got a bit of work piled up that needs my attention, but I hope I'm also able to get that backing pressed and cut down to the right size, AND get that math quilt loaded on the frame today. I still don't know how I'm quilting it yet, but I'll feel better once it's on the frame and ready to go!
Have a great day, and happy stitching!
