I finished the binding on the tumbling block quilt and was ready to work on another project. I am excited to say that I have finally tackled quilting a 6 year old UFO. I looked for a long time for the right FMQ design to use in the neutral areas. I was inspired by Lori’s tutorials for a pine cone and pine bough.
After practicing on paper and plastic, I started the quilting. I did mark circles where I wanted the pinecones. Here are my first FMQ pine cones and pine boughs.
I have not decided what design to quilt in the dark areas, but I still have many pine cones and pine boughs to do so no hurry.
