    Baby Honu Quilt just finished

    Just finished this quilt for a co-workers wife who in return is giving me an antique sewing machine! I'm pleased with how it turned out and hope she likes it. Her son bought the fabric and pattern in Hawaii, but she was scared to cut into it.

    This is my second attempt at FMQ. I did loop-de-loop in the center and then swirls in both borders. I think I'm falling in love with FMQ.

                Your quilting is great, especially considering it's only your second time. Very impressive.

                Love the colors of the quilt.

                    Ohh Martha... What a Gorgeous Quilt!
                    "AWESOME JOB"
                    Did You Free Motion the loop-de-loops & the swirls? PERFECTO!
                    BTW--What is FMQ?

                    This reminds me…..A while back(when Thrift’n) I picked up a book on Hawaiian quilt blocks… I wonder where I have it stashed?

                    I agree with Susan..... The Wiffy is Goona "FREAK OUT" when she sees it.
                    You should invite her here to the Forum....We'll make sure to ENCOURAGE Her.
                    Not only will she fall in LUV with JENNY’s Videos like we All did…but will get the “BUG”… that's....

                    That was a Gr8 barter you made....Don't forget to SHOW Off your New “Vintage” Toy

                          WOW! A great quilt. The fabrics are just perfect and the quilting is too
                          To quilt or not to quilt?.....what a ridiculous question!
