Quilting as you go...and practicing

Hello Everyone,

I hope you all in the States are enjoying some cool Fall weather. I know I am :) And there is fresh snow on the mtn top! That always makes me happy.

I have four of these blocks. They are 15" square. A little design I made up for a quilt design contest a few years ago. As they've just been sitting and doing nothing, I thought I would do a quilt as I go method. While I practiced my FMQing.

 I was having a little trouble at first.... till I realized I hadn't put my stitch length to zero. lol Here's some pebbling, I got confused which way to go occasionally.

 I just did some simple lines in these blocks... but it's hard to keep the line curved right.

 My regular readers know how much I love flowers. They are getting a little easier.

I'm still having fun! It sure is going to take a lot of practice! I best see what other ufo's I have laying around, small ones, that I can practice on. I know there is a lot of them somewhere. LOL

  1. Great practicing, Dorian! Your FMQ is coming along nicely! Looks like you are enjoying it. Love the daisies!

  2. Lovely colors this top. Good luck with your fmq. It looks nice!

  3. Such a pretty block and your quilting is so lovely! I think I had better stop wishing I was good at FMQ. Wishing isn't getting me very far and I won't get any better if I don't practice. You're making such wonderful progress - I'm cheering you on!

  4. Looking good and blocks like this make perfect pot holders and such for practice! Thanks for sharing.
