Yesterday I finished a customer's quilt.
this cute butterfly quilt :-)
My customer mailed me this quilt and it had some cute butterfly fabric, so I HAD to FMQ long arm free form butterflies all over it.
it's easier to see the butterflies on the back, even though I used a light purple thread as well
Now I broke down and bought a metal measuring tape at lowes then looked up a great tutorial here
on making these snap bags, they are fun and a SNAP to make, I'm going to make more for the craft fair on May 5th at PES.
I also received a Round Robin block in the mail yesterday, all the way from france :-)
I can't show much, since it's a secret but I played with EQ7 again and came up with this border and paper pieced it, it didn't take long since it wasn't very big and only one block with 4 sides, so no biggie.
