April One Monthly Goal

Happy Wednesday!

 

I’m choosing one of my easier UFO’s for  April’s One Monthly Goal.  It’s a wonky cross quilt using left over  10 x 10 inch squares from the Me and My Sister Layer cake Shades of Black. I believe I started this project sometime in 2014. My goal is to use some of the techniques I learned in Angela Walter’s “Dot to Dot” Craftsy class.

FMQ (free motion quilting) really scares me….

2018 OMG April

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To prepare myself I made a set of placemats to practice my stippling. Normally I am a warm colored kinda gal but I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try soft pastels!

Voila set of 4 free motion quilted placemats — not bad??
