FMQ Project Link Up

It's Friday and time to share our progress on projects and free motion quilting adventures. This week I received a super surprise from Janet-Lee Santeusanio, one of the founders of the MQX shows. I've been nominated teacher of the year!

You can actually still vote for this nomination right here. I'm really thrilled to have been nominated and recognized by MQX this way!

Judging from the comments on facebook, we're not the only ones that had issues with this design!

Just remember our mantra for this week - don't obsess about it! Perfection isn't the point of making these blocks so don't obsess about any mistakes or issues you see. It's all part of the learning process!

So what have you been up to this week?

Simple rules for the FMQ Project Link Up:

1. Link up with a post that features something you've learned from the Free Motion Quilting Project.
2. Somewhere in your post, please link back here.
3. Comment on at least 2 other links. Share your love of free motion quilting and make this weekly link up a fun way to connect with other quilters around the world!
