FMQ Friday - 2 Hours to Quilt

It's Friday and time to show off what we've free motion quilted this week!This week I've had 2 days with a dedicated 2 hours to quilt on Duchess Reigns and this is how much I've gotten done:

This is 1/2 of a corner section, so another 3.5 sections to go!

While the progress on this quilt has been extremely slow this summer, I've decided to make this a priority over the coming weeks and hope to have her completed by my 30th birthday in October. I think it would be a wonderful birthday present to have this quilt done and to move on with some other UFOs on the shelf.

I had a bit of time in the afternoon yesterday to cut out a new shirt:

This time I've adjusted the pattern again to increase space in the front and around the arm hole. It's been fun fiddling with the pattern and figuring out exactly what is wrong with the fit. My goal is to get the pattern perfectly fitting, then cut out several new tops for the fall.

So what have you been up to this week? I sure hope you had a chance to quilt something cool!
