First up is the Broken Herringbone pattern I found over at Play Crafts. Spiral free motion quilting. Talk about moving outside of my comfort zone.
I used Essential thread from Connecting Threads, size 50. At $3 for 1,200 yards, it was worth a try. I was very happy with both piecing and FMQ. Will definitely purchase this thread again.
At a Q-Squared bee sew day last weekend, Jenn over at A Quarter Inch from the Edge was doing FMQ spirals so I stood over her shoulder to watch. I think I like spirals!! The key is remembering to leave enough room to get back out. Hey, Scrapmaster, I'm starting to like FMQ.
I quilted in the white space to make the coloured strips pop. I am very happy with the outcome.
Proud of today's accomplishments, so linking up with Show Off Saturday over at Sew Can She.
