    Hey! I did that! and I'm keeping it!

    This is (was) a FMQ practice piece, but it started looking really pretty so now it's hanging on my wall smiling at me every time I walk by.

    I'm usually my own worst critic, but I just love how this turned out.

    Lovely! I like the different colours of thread and fabric and I would hang that on my wall in a minute!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    the colors of thread and fabric are beautiful and so is your design work.

    Thank you. You're all so nice. I didn't mark anything. It's freestyle.
