Happy Valentine's Day
Happy Valentine's Day!!
I've been working on organizing my creative space (i.e. corner of our bonus room) over the last few weeks and found a panel from what I think was a Sandy Gervais line from a few years ago. Looked like a great project to practice my FMQ. Here is a close up of my in progress. I outlined the shapes and then filled in the remaining area with an all over meander.
I did the FMQ over two sessions and it was quite a lot of fun. I did manage to fold over and quilt part of the fold over without realizing it. But quick work by my seam ripper and a requilt and you'd never know I had the mishap!
I cut off the Happy Valentine's Day part of the panel and will use this in a table runner or another smaller quilt in the future.
Did some fancy heart stitches for the border.
Enjoy the day - may it be filled with fabric and roses.
And may spring arrive SOON!
We had snow then sleet & ice and then more snow over the last two days. Woke up to a world all covered in ice. I didn't go into the office so avoided all the craziness. But I also did work from home so didn't get to my machine.
