1. February FMQ Challenge over at the QuiltShopGal
Realized that this is a somewhat shorter month and we are almost half way through, so started my pillow this weekend. This months' expert is Leah Day and as for January there are three options to participate. I dragged my feet for a while not being able to make up my mind what to do... actually my choice is influenced by the thread I wanted to use...had to be the beautiful orange Aurifil thread that I have, mixed with that blue...
Here is a sneak preview of some FMQ Goodness: Did not quite turn out as bright as I had imagined but it still will be nice
2. Finished all the blocks of the Field Study quilt: Thank God for that, this was dragging me down. Left this for a minute to be sewn together another day.
3. Found some backing for my Stretched Star quilt
What a strike of good luck, as it fits the yellow in this quilt perfectly and goes with the overall bright and happy theme. Sewn this together and this quilt is now ready to be basted and more importantly to be quilted. Still not sure whether to do an overall FMQ design or go around the stars outlining them...leaning towards an overall design at the moment.
I want to get this done and write up the pattern.
4. Doing another basket in brown tones...
Yep, busy...why do we always do that, starting several things at once with another two to five ideas lurking around in the background. Almost stressful!
Until next time
