Feeling really brave, I FMQed around the flowers border using metalic thread. I truly enjoyed practicing my new quilting skills this week. Thanks to QB.

What is "matchstick" quilting and can anyone identify what stitching is used in the pebbles?

On the pebbles, I used the same serpentine stitch that I used to SID and just spaced 1/4'" (used my presser foot as a guide)

Matchstick quilting is explained here:
