Magnanimously homeschooling, worshiping, creating.......

Join us on a journey of faith, healing, learning to live with part of our hearts missing, and recovery, as our family rebuilds our lives, after our son's long battle with cancer....and his eventual rise on eagle's wings into Heaven...victory is his...he is serving the King!!!

Machine Quilting Blog Hop

I will be attempting stitching along with the #MachineQuiltingBlogHop? It started on Monday, and we are working our way through The Ultimate Guide to Machine Quilting by Angela Walters and Christa Watson. 
I will be honest. I forgot, so when it came time to start quilting my nieces quilt that I am trying to finish in time for graduation, I simply dug in with curvy floral triangles and swirls for the white portion of my churn dash block quilt. I am starting sashing now, so I will be working on the week #1 Plumb line 
I have always and still do LOVE machine quilting. I hadn't actually done it in quite some time, so although I have some experience, I am starting over a bit, and hoping to get better and better each day.

 Here is my swirls and florals on my churn dash block quilt.

Excuse me!!!
Did you know that cats love to quilt too? #catslovetoquilttoo Every quilter I have come across with cats would wholeheartedly agree! 

Ok, there. Now I have officially worked some plumb line action. I have to say, I thought these ribbons would be super boring, but they gave me tremendous quilting pleasure! Not to mention, they are just cool looking. 

Switchbacks, which I turned into very wide ones, but I actually loved better. Really have to work on the start/ stops. Also, the sashing is a challenging spot to quilt. Oh my!
I am loving this quilt.

I will continue to post here on my progress. Meanwhile, I will try to update all of my projects I have made this year, which is something I really want to do for myself, to have a record and visual of what I have done over the years.

Magnanimous quilty blessings to you!

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
