    This is a quilt for charity. It was someone's ufo that they donated to a quilt group I joined. The triangles were cut and stitched together to make blocks. I just arranged the blocks and sewed them together. I had so much fun yesterday doing the free motion quilting. Previously I have mainly done straight lines with a walking foot and only on table runners and baby quilts. I realize it is not anywhere near perfect but this is a great way to practice for when I eventually quilt one for myself.

    Very nice, especially for your first FM quilt. Give yourself some chocolate!
