Today is Free Motion Quilting Friday over at Leah Day's Free Motion Quilting Project.
The rules are simple:
- Link up with a post that features something about Free Motion Quilting (FMQ).
- Somewhere in your post, you must link back to Leah's site, or you can just post the FMQF button in your sidebar.
- Comment on at least a few of the other FMQF links. Share your love of free motion quilting and make this weekly link up a fun way to connect!
Between my new work schedule and the other personal stuff, I've hardly touched my quilting. Yesterday morning, though, after the news of the explosion in West, Texas, I needed it more than ever. I pieced the back for the Family Ties quilt and basted it before work.
This morning, my boss asked me not to come in until 10, so I had another chunk of time to quilt and soothe my anxious heart with fabric. I'm so grateful.
I'm just getting started, but I love this quilt so much already. My only concern after starting this spiral is that it is too dense a quilting pattern for a newborn. I'm seriously considering ripping it out, which might be the straw that breaks the camels back and sends me right around the bend. But I want it to be right. Thoughts?
By the way, the baby girl for whom I'm making it is now officially EIGHT days late. Good for me; not so much for her poor mama who is ready to get this show on the road.
