FMQ Project Link Up

It's Friday and in the words of my grandpa, it's raining like the dickens! I'm staying warm in my sewing room with a space heater cranked and chugging through all my building blocks:

Yes, I've filmed almost all the videos for this year and will soon be completing my quilt! I'm so happy with this project and excited about the many blocks and quilting designs we will stitch together in the spring, summer, and fall.

Speaking of blocks, this week we learned how to piece a rail fence block! This one was super easy to piece because there were no seams to match. In the words of James - Easy Peasey Lemon Squeezie!

Okay, clearly I'm in a weird mood today...

On the free motion front, I also shared Basic Star:

I really love this simple design and I'm still wondering about my idea with hot fix crystals set in the center of every star. It might be something to try this weekend just for fun!

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