Design Wall Monday - 2/22/16

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) -

Three FMQ practice blocks - ;))

I decided to pull the YELLOW out of all the pretty colors - HERE -

And save it for the sashing when I sew the blocks together at the end -

And to use YELLOW thread for the quilting -

To tie it all together -

And because it shows up nicely on all of the pretty colors - ;))

In these photos the RED looks really ORANGE -
Obviously my lighting is not the best sometimes -
Because the colors are really very bright and clear primary colors -
Like in the photo at the top of this page -

But they show that I did GO for it -

And got as far as the Wiggles in Lesson 2 - ;))

I plan to work my way through the rest of the lesson this week -

And then to take my time -

Working my way through one lesson each week -

Since life tends to get in the way -

And the "tax stuff" still needs to get done - ;))

After I tend to "business" -

I want to RELAX - ENJOY the process - and BREATHE - ;))

My Free-Motion Quilting skills definitely need improvement -

But we'll see how far I can go in the weeks ahead - ;))

One thing is for sure -

It can't get any worse -

Right??? - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

I love the bottom FMQ. It is very organic looking.
And yes, it could be worse. I know from personal experience. Just keep going and it will eventually get better and better.

Thanks, Gene - I'm hoping that it will get better - and it probably will - if I keep at it. It's like cursive - us old folks didn't learn how to do that overnight either - ;))

Great job! I need to practice my quilting as well if I hope to get better. You seem to be working through it in a good fashion.

Thanks, Jennifer - Craftsy has some great classes available - all I had to do was sign up and follow along - ;))
