    Take 5 - FMQ experiment - disaster averted

    I posted recently about the sad story of this quilt and a cat.
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...t-t191032.html

    Sigh.

    But it's now finished and we will never tell my friend who is getting this for her birthday!

    Pattern: Take 5
    Size: 64" X 76"
    Backing: from Jo-ann's.
    Binding: pulled from back
    Quilting: My primitive version of FMQ - this time I did a different motive in each piece - a block had small squares, a rectangle, and a large square. I did daisies and loop-de-doops in the large squares, hearts in the small squares, and leaves on a vine in the rectangles. Had green thread on the top and pink in the bobbin.

    To FMQ: first I scallop near the ditch around each block. THen I FMQ each block separately - starting with the outside blocks. Works for me for now!

    I love, love, love this quilt! The pattern (which I have & have yet to make... grrrrr!), the colors/fabrics (yummy!) & the quilting... the whole thing just *works*. Kudos on bringing this little baby around to your way of thinking... LOL!

    Your quilt came out beautiful! I absolutely love the feminine touch the color pallet has given the pattern. Thanks for sharing.
    The bad news is - time flies.
    The good news is - you're the pilot!

    It turned out beautiful! As my mother once said we don't always have to tell everyone what we know.

    The fabrics are not one line. The pink swirl and the green border are from my LQS. The other three fabrics are from Fabriccafe.com. They are a bundle of 3 one-yard cuts.
    Darker pink: spendid hues - danhui nai licensed to wilmington prints
    pink/green print: nature's chorus by April Cornell for Moda Pattern #35102
    Pink swirl: fabrics.com pattern #16057 Hunky Dory
    The selveges I have for the greens don't have identifying info.
    So many quilts, so little time.
