rainbow zebra

Well that’s a fun title.  To go with a bright and happy fabric I saw.

How can you not smile when you see this. Someone submitted this as an ugly fabric at our guild swap.  I LOVE it!

On the ugly fabric challenge, I won. Thanks for voting for me quilty folks.  I will have not problem finding a way to spend my gift certificate at Gala Fabrics. I did some straight line quilting on the green part of the chevrons, but decided to do some free-motion flowers.

I have never taken a lesson in free-motion, but I have learned that EVERY time you start free motion, you should spend just a moment doing a warm up.  I grab 2 scraps and a piece of batting, and give it a whirl.  Practice makes perfect, well makes better than just winging it.

I think I improved as I went along, and did pretty good on the thread match too.

The only actual sewing that happened this weekend was hand sewing binding while sitting for an hour in line at the passport office. Ugh, but good quality time with my needle and thread.  Have a great week ahead.
