Now I Got Something

Besides bad grammar.

Finally finished the silk ribbon blocks. I didn't do much in the way of quilting, just a little bit of in the ditch.

I finished the smaller table runner.

And tried a few new-to-me FMQ designs. I like how this turned out.

The next quilt was a bit of a challenge. All of the quilts I've quilted on the frame have had flannel backs, this is the first with a flannel top. It kept stretching and moving under the FMQ foot. I'm hoping after it is washed some of the bunchiness goes away. Again another new-to-me quilt design. The wonky leaves were fun to do. I also used a variegated thread which I really liked.

A few finishes and a new start. My great-niece requested a quilt: pink, purple and cats.

I'm hoping this works...she's really picky.

Well done on your quilting and I must say the cat quilt fabric choices look fun for a girl.

Your silk ribbon blocks are beautiful as is your runner. The quilting looks so pretty on the back.

Those fabrics will be wonderful for her requested quilt. Love the cats!!!

Your ribbon blocks are gorgeous.

Oh, finishes! I am jealous. The ribbon blocks look lovely, as does the table runner. New to you quilting designs are going so well! Hope the flannel behaves later. I'm sure your niece will adore the kitty fabric. Bad grammar or no, you sure did "got something" :)
