I felt this quilt needed texture. It seemed very smooth and flat. I love the colors but it just needed another dimension. I've only done 4 blocks, but I like what I've done so far.
I got the idea for this FMQ from looking at examples of quilting found in blogs. I looked for awhile and nothing really caught my eye. However, when I found Green Fairy Quilts, I knew I'd find something! If you haven't done it yet, go to this blog and check out her beautiful quilting! It's awesome and inspiring! I can never do as great a job as Judi Madsen, but I just love checking out her beautiful projects.
I had planned on writing this post yesterday but I was quite busy. It seems when my husband came home from work the other night, a skunk followed him into our garage. We couldn't lure the darn thing out! After many phone calls, we found a company that sent someone over and got him out of our garage. He did leave us a gift. He ended up spraying our garage as he exited. We had the garage treated but you can still smell it! I'm very grateful he's left our home and gone in search of another place to reside!
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! Watch out for those pesky skunks!!
