FMQ - Pine Cones and Pine Boughs

     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.
