Free Motion Project Link Up

It's time to link up! It's been a crazy snow week for us with James out of school, but I've still found time to quilt in between fun trips outside to build a snow family:

Today the sun is shining brightly so all this beautiful snow will soon melt away. So far we haven't had to delay any orders due to power outage, and the roads are now cleared, so everything is shipping out as normal.

Josh ignored his ditches and still ended up with a beautiful design.

I've also seen some amazing variations of this design on the Facebook Group Page, so make sure to join in and check out all the beautiful colors and creativity going on there as well!

 Also posted this week was a fun spring-themed design called Daisy Chain:

It's probably going to be awhile before I see flowers like these in my garden, so it was lots of fun to stitch it instead. I'd like to try this again, but with multiple colors of thread. Wouldn't this look cute in pink, red, and yellow?

So that's what I've been up to this week! What have you been working on?
