    Sugar and Spice

    ...and everything nice.

    Here is the companion to the puppy dog quilt I posted a few days ago. I have really been having fun with the FMQ! Figures are the hardest for me to do, but these little baby quilts (42 X 42) are the perfect size for practicing on, bigger than a practice "sandwich" but not so big that I have to wrestle to keep it on the table.

    It looks like your practice is paying off. Your stitching looks good.

    Maybe I'll try to do something more with my FMQ too. This encourages me to try.

    This is one of the best reasons for us all to share photos of our progress. We never know who we might inspire!
