March FMQ

Standard

I didn’t even wait until the last day!  Are you surprised because I sure am.  I was so excited that this months guest teacher was Ann Fahl.  Her book Thread Dancing was the first book on FMQ that I bought.  I didn’t do the loops or the stars because I’ve had lots of practice with them since they are two of my favorite quilting designs.  I’m quite proud of my spirals.  I need to work on my speed control with them but I like how they worked.  I’m not so good with the flowers.  The ones that didn’t get messed up by my misbehaving bobbing looked ok but they are HUGE.  I’m going to have to learn how to make them better and a little smaller.

So of course I chose the spirals for my sampler quilt.  I knew I could get them to look at least halfway decent.

Here’s my first three months.  I think that I’m doing ok.  I definitely see improvement.

 

I also cheated a little and got an early start on one of my guilds next projects.  We’re making a Stack-n-Whack and I couldn’t wait to see what would come out of my fabric.  I also wanted to have some done so I could pick out a background at a great sale this weekend.

This is the only block that I have sewn so far and a scrap of fabric I had to test the kind of fabric I want to buy.  I think that I really like the pink with it.  Can’t wait to get more done and to be able to go shopping this weekend.
