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 -


  1. Both good ideas. The scribble quilting in the background of an embroidered block can pop the design a bit.
    The clamshells really work well for the Turkey Day fabric

    1. Thanks, Gene - it's fun trying various techniques and designs - like "mash that" to "pop this" - and the clamshells just seemed like a "natural", so I HAD to try it - ;))
