Design Wall Monday - 3/7/16

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) -

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 -

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.

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 - ;))

Jill said...

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.

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 - ;))

Glad to see your still having lots of fun with this, really love the blocks the solid colours are super poppy :)

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 - ;))
