FMQ- July Final

The challenge this month was fun - making quilt tiles.  I found I cannot sew a straight line free motion, so I drew out my tile lines prior to quilting.  Maybe one day, but unlike regular sewing, where I can eyeball a straight line, I can't seem to do that with those feed dogs dropped!!

So, here's my last practice piece on the fabric that will become a block keeper.  I'm using variegated thread on a dark olive green fabric.  In order for anything to show up, I had to change the color intensity.
The whole fabric piece quilted

And in variegated thread on WHITE fabric!!!  Here is my challenge block.

I think this makes a very unique pretty look on a large piece of fabric, don't you?

Keep on stitchin'!

  4. I love your filler design, too -- it reminds me of those little pinwheels that my grandmother gave us to play with. :-)
