Free Motion Quilting

Sophie's Quilt

Here is the practise top put together with the double cotton wadding.  Decided our small dog Sophie will benifit from this, as she loves to sit on quilts,  and doesn't have one of her own.
Will try out different threads to see which will look best, so its a bit experimental.  
I have drawn in a couple of borders to do some whatever there too.
I will use an aurofil thread on the back.

I may not post again till after Christmas - need to get some other things done for Christmas...and the apricots need to be picked as they of course all get ripe all at once...and the plums are ready to do the same thing!!
Andrea wants to try using the dehydrator  ( which hasnt been used for some years) - should be interesting.

Have a wonderful Christmas and I will catch up in the New Year.

May your holidays be safe and healthy ... and not too cold/hot.

What a great practice project and a great idea to make something that your 'companion' will benefit from.
Enjoy your blogging break and have a great Christmas and ring in the New Year with friends and family, looking forward to hearing from you then, take care

Sophie must be one of the family and well loved. It's going to be fun quilting that one. I hope your Christmas is very merry.
