The June Mighty Lucky Club Challenge was all about "Saying something with free-motion quilting" with Angela Walters. At first, I was really excited about the challenge and thought about all the cool stuff I was going to quilt. But then life got in the way with work and soccer and graduations...
I still wanted to try quilting words on a quilt though so grabbed my first try at the February "Minimalist Improvisation" challenge - my purple improv quilt. I picked a small white area on the quilt top, chose some 40 wt purple Aurifil thread and started quilting!
After quilting the words, I figured I might as well keep my FMQ foot on the machine and went with a few different designs for the rest of the quilt...
Some paisleys, some square spirals and some flowers.
For the binding, I used some purple scraps and some leftover orange binding I had from another quilt.
So I didn't get much practice with quilting words, but I got another quilt finished! And this one is going on the wall of our bedroom at the Island house.
And this is project number 2 on my Q2 FAL list! That's now 6 out of 8 projects completed!
Linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday and at Whims and Fancies for TGIFF.
