Give Thanks! -

Looking at the center squares on the Christmas embroidered table runner - I thought they needed a bit more quilting - so I FMQ around the embroidery part and then "scribbled" in the background areas. I didn't care if I "crossed" my lines - I just wanted to mash it down - and not have a 4" square area with no quilting in it - ;))

I also played with my Turkey Day Wallhanging - marked some "clamshells" in the "turkey" rows - then did some FMQ and followed the marked lines pretty well this time. And I like how it seems to puff up and show off the "turkeys" - ;))

I know that it is a Thanksgiving piece -
but the sentiment seemed appropriate for this Memorial Day weekend - ;))

Give Thanks! - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Quilting on the lines -

Almost forgot to show you another little piece that I'm playing with -

It's an Amish looking "cheater" pillow top that I layered and basted -
Then I tried to quilt between the "seams" and "on the lines" - ;))

As you can see - that is easier said than done -
I missed some of the pre-printed white lines - but I got pretty close -

Then I tried a couple FMQ designs in some of the unmarked areas -

I still need to quilt the border area and make it into an actual pillow - but I'm in no hurry. I have a bunch of other projects that need quilting - so I have a good supply of "practice" pieces to keep me busy - and even though I'm not very good at FMQ yet - it's really FUN - and quite addictive - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -
