    Two aims with this one (a) use up scraps, including 3 different white on whites and (b) some FMQ practice.
    Its 63 ins square, very snuggly, I used Dream Puff batting for warmth. The thread is a lovely vibrant multi- coloured King Tut called Jacobs Coat.

    Now, now, girls ... actually I wasn't planning to show it to you all, as it was started as just a wrap-around - but I was happy with the way it turned out.
    I am trying to only do freehand FMQ as I can't be bothered with the hassle of marking! This one was not too difficult as I could "sight line" the divisions in the 9 patches to try & stay reasonably even. Even so there are a few funny shapes here and there!

    Mission accomplished! Did it put a dent in the scraps? I love white backgrounds and the thread pops out. So, do you feel better about your FmQ- I couldn't tell you needed practice.

    Terri and I are NOT fussing -- I get the quilt because I asked first! And if Terri says anything different, well, she's wrong!! :-) :lol: :lol:
