One of my goals for 2016 has been to learn to free motion quilting. I decided to join the year long project, Mystery Block of the Month with Leah Day, to create the Sunshine Surprise quilt.
I have completed Sunshine Surprise Block #1 - pieced and quilted! Yes, I did mark the quilting lines and used them as a guide for my free motion quilting.
It's not perfect, but I was pleased with the results. After all, I won't be able to quilt unless I start quilting! This was also the block that gave me the confidence to complete the Elephants Never Forget wall hanging for Shannon.
