UFO's 11 & 12

Last year I started 12 blocks from Sentimental Journey stitcheries... instead of making one quilt I have decided these would go into individual items..... this month I made one of them into a drawstring bag for stitchers affected by floods in Queensland.... only the one bag witht the stitchery quote is a UFO... the others are new (I didn't have a separate picture):


This weekend I worked on Free Motion Quilting and finished off this quilt that has been lurking.....


I wasn't sure about the colours which is why it took me ages to do
... but as a finished item it is not too bad...


my first attempt at a fairly loose meandering
...... improved as I went along....
a tip I learnt
make sure the needle is in properly!


I especially like the fabric used for the border..... cheers it up a bit .....

ready for those cooler Autumn evenings
