What I made today part one


I have been putting off this challenge for weeks now but this morning I got to work on it.


Drew these on the fabric with pencil


Stitched with free motion


Marked the area to be background quilted.


Each row was one stitch apart












I did sign and date it.

Today is the 9th anniversary of this blog!!

    1. Thank you Margaret. I am actually planning on making another with bolder colors. On the spool they looked great but came out a bit wimpy.

  6. Funny how a person needs to 'wait until they can wait no more' before tackling a challenge. Somehow the time has to feel right, doesn't it? Well done!
