More FMQ!!


These are the 3 blocks I've been working on. Each corner is the same so I've done each block 4 times! I used the same book from my last post to come up with ideas for quilting. They're all very similar but one is using swirls whereas one is more leaf like. I just love quilting them! Practice definitely makes it easier.


This block uses swirls in the middle and hearts outside of the pieced star.


This block uses more loop designs but leaves in the pink and green portions of the star. So fun to quilt!

 

 
This is the center of the quilt. I made feathers flowing from the center into each corner. I know it's hard to see with all those colors.  Here's the back.
 
 
 
It may be easier to see from the back on just one fabric.
 
I have 2 borders left. I still haven't decided how to quilt them! I'm looking through books and on websites for ideas. Hoping to post pictures of a finished quilt very soon! I'll be linking up with Leah Day for Free Motion Friday which you can see here.
 
Hope you all have a wonderful long weekend. Unfortunately, I'll be working most of it. On a brighter note, it's my daughter's birthday today. Hoping to have a little party for her Sunday. Happy Birthday, Becca!!

My Slabs

I almost forgot to post the slab blocks I made for our block exchange.  This block is about 8 inches square. It was supposed to be most...
