Happy Canada Day and FMQP #2 and a sample

Happy Canada Day!!
I am so inspired to practice my free motion quilting that I am going to pretend that I did not turn my calendar.  I have a schedule that I am suppose to follow, so I do not get behind in my sewing.  So last night I decided to do my Free Motion Quilt Along #2.  Stippling.  I did not do a big sample but I am pretty happy with the results.  The blue thread is #2.

So I want to do up some practice sandwiches so I can practice different stitches.  I could not imagine just throwing them in a box when they are done, so I sat down last night and drafted what I wanted to do with them.  I am quilting one side the same color and the opposite side in contrasting thread.  Here is my stipple block.  I marked it out before I started but then I went off the line,  So I continued but ended in the middle so I just made a cirlcey thing!!

Here is the other side!!

Well now that I have that finished up, gotta take that foot off my machine and flip over the calandar!!
Until the next stitch!


  1. One of my fave bloggers made a quilt-as-you-go quilt with all her machine quilting sample blocks. :)

  2. These are great Janet...what a good idea! It would make a gorgeous bright throw and something so simple would look fab!!
