Design Wall Monday - 3/7/16


DESIGN WALL MONDAY -
Check out all of us who link up with Judy L. -
At Patchwork Times on Mondays.
We have some awesome stuff on our walls!
Well, THEY do - ME - not so much sometimes - ;))
===



On my wall today (kinda) -

The three FMQ practice blocks -

That I played with last week - ;))


I finished those and then made the last set of practice blocks -




I obviously need WAAAAAAAAAAAY MORE practice - ;))

My spirals need work -


And my free-form feathers are awful -


BUT - I learned a LOT -

And I had a LOT of FUN!! - ;))

This week I want to get these blocks -

And their friends -

In some semblance of order -

So that I can put them together -

In a "quilt-as-you-go" fashion -

For my FMQ "BEFORE" Quilt -

So we'll see how that works out - ;))



Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

  1. Remember, Christina told you to not be so hard on yourself. :-)
    Focus on the positive! Your large center flower and your "orange peel" quilting are very good. So are your ??? little circles connected by a wiggly line-whatever that is called.
    More practice and you will get better and better.

    1. Thanks, Gene! - you're right - Christina said to listen to my inner "mentor" more than my inner "critic". FMQ takes lots and lots of practice - practice - practice - ;))

  2. What fun colors you've used! I agree that FMQing takes lots of practice. This will be a great way to see your progress as you keep practicing.

    1. Thanks, Jill - I'm hoping that by this time next year I will see some improvement - if not - oh, well - at least I'm having FUN while I'm doing it - ;))

    1. Thanks, lady! - now that I have the blocks done (quilt-as-you-go-style) - I need to decide how big to cut them and how wide I want the sashing to be - stay tuned - ;))

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
