It was the burning desire to create a quilt for her wedding that drove Leah Day to finally leap into quilting with both feet in 2005. While she’d wanted to learn for most of her life, quilting had always been too difficult a hobby to master on her own. Finally at the age of 21, she began actively taking classes and joined a local guild in order to gain the necessary skills. In 2007 with the birth of her son, Leah began a series of goddess quilts and started focusing on honing her free motion quilting skills. By 2009, Leah was frustrated with the limited designs and ideas for free motion filler designs, so she created a free, online blog called The Free Motion Quilting Project to share her new designs with the world. This blog then lead to a successful online quilt store at Leah is the author of two books featuring her free motion filler designs: From Daisy to Paisley and From Feathers to Flames, as well as two DVDs: Free Motion Quilting Basics for Beginners and Beginner Free Motion Quilting Fillers.
