FMQ Project Link Up

free motion quilting | Leah DayIt's Friday and time to link up and share what we've been working on! This week we got a lot more practice quilting straight lines into our Rail Fence blocks:

I loved seeing the many variations of this block on the Facebook Group! It's so exciting to see all the different fabric choices and design alterations everyone is trying.

This Jagged Flames design is looks a lot like the zigzags we used in the Rail Fence block, but they're more random and free form because they were quilted without marking any lines.

This week I've also been busy connecting all my Building Blocks together. I'm so pleased with how these are coming together and excited to see the finished quilt:

  1. I like so much the desing for the sashing, and your quilt looks very very great! Have a nice day!

  2. I have learned so much from the Building Blocks pattern from Leah Day! I have never quilted or done free motion stitching so this project was a great way for me to try it all out.

  3. I love that the sashing is the connecting of the blocks!
