Here's what I accomplished this week:
Okay, I admit... I'm in to the FMQ Challenge at SewCalGal. Here's the one I was supposed to do in January. Frances Moore is the FMQ expert for January. She taught us how to make heart-shaped leaves with a little vein in them. Here's my version:
Mailed the Block Swap Adventure March block to my partner, Blondie:
Completed the Three Blind Mice baby quilt (Sunflower Seeds The Awesome QA pattern). This quilt was the UFO Challenge quilt with Judy at Patchwork Times. Read more about it here: http://new2quilting.blogspot.com/2012/03/march-ufo-finished-three-blind-mice.html
This pic does not show the completed quilt... I picked this photo because the colors show more true.
I also got busy on this little quilt for the Free Motion Quilting Challenge with SewCalGal. It looked like this:
Now it has the March FMQ square done. (Might as well start with March so that I can still link up and win fun prizes!) I'm very happy with the loops and stars taught by Ann Fahl.
