So, yep. I've been trying it more and more lately. Mostly little, small projects. They seem easier to manipulate and manage. I have yet to get comfortable enough to do a big quilt. It feels very awkward to me, and I'm not one who likes to get 'down and dirty'!
The end of January I posted about finally trying and making 'Circle Of Geese' ~
Because it was my first try with the geese, I really didn't plan it out. Besides knowing that I wanted a basic color wheel for the geese, everything else was on the fly!
And the same is true for the quilting. I have heard that you should pick a design and practice that design over and over until you are comfortable enough to do it without much thought. I totally agree and plan to try that. However, this wasn't even close to that philosophy!
I am in love with pebbles, circles. They really make me happy when I see them. I knew they would make it on my 'everything but the kitchen sink' FMQ sampler!
When I say 'Kitchen Sink'...I kid you not! Pebbles, geometric, fingers, stippling and some I made up as I went! This was so fun!
You have to have fun, right?! I could wring my hands with worry about how I'm not that great of a FMQ, I don't do it right or follow the rules...what's the point?! I love what I did, I had fun and I encourage you to give it a go too!
I wish I had this mini quilt washed and crinkled. It's gonna be amazing...to me!!
