Dull light doesn't show these colours off to best advantage, but these fabrics have got my enthusiasm going for the next quilt top. Poking around in the stash has been entertaining, finding pieces I had forgotten about, old favourites and others I have never used before. The elephants are going to be the centrepiece of the next piecing project, combined with shades of brown, purple, mauve and turquoise. After putting off making quilts for so long, I am now enjoying myself working with all the wonderful colours.
I have calculated that I probably have enough fabric in the house to keep me going until I am 96, so I need to try and stay in the habit of keeping my projects ticking. As usual, I am making things in batches, because one quilt top gives me an idea for the next, so I end up making four in a row. Will it be five? We shall see.
Here goes for Week 323 :-
Many thanks to Gail for linking up last time with her mystery quilt. If you haven't seen her blog post yet, nip over now and see more.
Remember, FMQ is FMQ, whether your machine was made last week, or it is older than your granny.
Here are the very easy and slightly elastic rules:-
1. Link up with any recent post, ideally from the last week but within the last month, which features a free motion quilting project, whether it is a work in progress or a finish.
2. Link back to this post in your own post.
3. Visit as many of the other participants as possible and say hello in the comments box.
