Free Motion Quilting 2012 continued.

Still plodding on in between loads and loads of other things need to be done here at home..
We are all well however, though weary - and I  would rather be quilting :)

Here is what I have done so far.  Hope to get some more done and also the November challenge too.

Still working out what to do next... '
I did do a small red Ladybug on a small brown mark on the cloth...the cloth itself was a bit worn and had a few rust type marks on it.
Besides as the ladybug is one of my trade marks - it had to go somewhere :)

I was reading Jill The Quilt Rat's blog tonight and she has a great post on cutting out 'snowflake designs on paper.  I have always been intrigued by this   ...  so I tried it out  - not that it worked very well,l 

Here is my effort - paper too thick and scissors too small.  I could only find a leather punch , to make the holes with and that too was a pain.\
I also chopped out the middle section far more than I meant to - it was meant to be possums and flowers... but as you can see it didn't quite work out... I couldn't find my mirrors  large or small ( and it wasn't for the lack of looking!) as my craft things are meant to be organised into boxes...and labelled...

So now I am completely worn out and looking forward to doing something more on my quilting tomorrow.

Well you certainly were ambitious.....even though it didn't turn out as planned it is still very interesting.....could be incorporated into your amazing free motion quilting.

And yes.....you really do need a thin paper for this technique. Glad you were inspired to try it.

Your top piece - complete with ladybird (very clever!) is beautiful and I look forward to seeing what you do with your possum piece :-)

Your quilting is inspirational as always and such a delight to behold. I love playing around with scissors and paper, thanks for the link. Such possibilities with that technique!
