A little FMQ and FQs

Today I got my August Fat Quarter Friends swap package! The fabrics are so beautiful!

This weekend I also braved doing some free motion quilting on some simple placemats! I did one with loops, one with curls, one with shells, and one outlining the large flowers. I still need a LOT of work, but I am proud of starting to practice it myself!

Here's the shell pattern:

And the outlined flowers:

The fabric is something I bought on the clearance at Joann and the binding is a print from the Summersault collection.

Sharing with Sew Cute Tuesday at Better Off Thread and Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story!!


  1. Great job on the quilting! I need to make some small projects and delve into free motion. I'm just happy my straight line quilting is actually straight now! :-)

  2. Lovely place mats and great quilting!

  3. Great quilting. Keep up the practice. If you get a chance would you give me a kick in the butt to give FMQ a try, still too nervous about it. I bought the foot about a year ago and it is still in the package!
