FMQ Friday - Quilting Catch Up

It's finally Friday! Today I'm playing catch up on my Spoonflower version of Express Your Love:

I'm quilting this panel background with many new designs we will be learning in the coming weeks. October is definitely going to be a month of pretty quilting textures!

The one thing I've learned from this panel is the importance of testing my batting before throwing it into the middle layer of a quilt willy nilly. The batting on this quilt was super puffy and not really suited to be quilted so densely.

I have an idea for fun way to test batting and play with quilting scale at the same time...but this particular project is still under wraps for now!

So that's what I've quilted today. What are you busy with?

Simple rules for the FMQ Friday link up:

1. Link up with a post that features something about Free Motion Quilting (FMQ).
2. Somewhere in your post, you must link back here, or you can just post the FMQF button in your sidebar.
3. Comment on at least a few of the other FMQF links. Share your love of free motion quilting and make this weekly link up a fun way to connect.

Let's go quilt,
