FMQ Away

Working on my pillow for the 2015 FMQ Challenge at QuiltShopGal

Choose black calico to do my FMQ on...I like stitching with light thread on dark fabric. However, I noticed that I am a bit out of practice...some of my stitching is positively wonky, Never mind, it's the effect we are going for.
Had trouble with the swirls, just did not flow properly...but anyway, it did get done and now I only have the right side to do. Planning on some of Angela Walters flower filler, interpersed with some feathery bigger shapes. We shall see.

Until next time



  1. To my eye it doesn't look wonky at all, it's brilliant!

  2. The quilting looks perfectly - also the swirls. :D
    Greetings from Germany,

  3. Gorgeous. Swirls are still extremely challenging for me, yet I hear from some that they are the first FMQ design that the quilter masters. I wonder if it is a left/right brain thing. Either way, I think yours are beautiful and this entire FMQ Pillow is absolutely beautiful.


  4. Your quilting looks perfect! I don't see anything wonky. I think we are our own worst critic. Gorgeous!!
