    First finished project 2017

    Hi

    I finished this table topper to night. Well. at least the fmq and binding anyway.

    It was a topper that has been laying around as an ufo and I thought it was time to finish it and at the same time I could get some practise on the fmq.

    Well, It was a good idea but in reality not so good. I could hardly see the thread on the fabric.

    So I decided to trace the pattern on the backside of the topper and stitch from that side.

    First I stitched in the ditch from the front so I had some boundaries on the back.

    It turned out ok. It is hard to see the fmq but I am hoping that once I got it washed it at least would give me some texture.

    Thanks for looking and Happy new year everybody!

    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

          Came out really nice. The texture should be really nice on this one.

              Thank you. No or yes, depending on how you look at it.

              I use my regular 6 x12 quilting ruler to help me draw the lines and then I quilted on the lines!

              I do not have any free motion quilting rulers.

              Have a nice day!
