FMQ


Yesterday I sewed together some pieces of fabric that were left over from the Labyrinth Quilt.
Last night I did some FMQ on the sample to see what I may do on the quilt


I was trying different thread, and different designs thinking I would use some of the 'Just Leaf It' book I got from Kim Stotsenberg - thank you Kim, its a great book!
This is the front view

This is the back

Showing the front with my leaves

.....and a close up of the back.

It all seemed a bit much, so I have decided to do all the ditch sewing first
( and there is a HEAP of that) and work out which way I will go from there.
The fabrics are a bit busy, so maybe it will be easier to 'see' when that's done..I have also ordered more thread too.

I did love doing the PPP though :)

I had a lovely Skype time with Joanne in Canada,  who was busy as we chatted,  quilting on her Dresdon Plate quilt.  Its looking wonderful!
I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving.

I love, love, love your leaves... even tho you decided not to use them on your final quilt. When you do decide to use them... all your practice will pay off!
