|This year's Lori Holt quilt is from Farm Girl Vintage. |
I have one 6" kitty block sewn.
The other three 6" blocks are cut and ready to sew.
I'll have a kitty, cow, sheep and hen looking out the barn doors.
|I love this Bonnie Sullivan kit Santa got me for Christmas. |
I added some blue flannel and changed some gold for a softer color.
I need to embroider some noses, eyes and bird feet, then assemble and quilt.

|Hurray, it's quilted. |
This is a Kim Diehl quilt Saltbox Sampler from her book Simple Charms.
I went with simpler quilting motifs on my Janome and am pleased with the results.
I started this quilt in September,2013.
This is the 2nd UFO I finished this Quarter.
Here is the link to my blog where I posted my UFO's. http://lauraluvsloons.blogspot.com/2016/01/some-ufos-for-2016.html
I was a little optimistic in what I could finish.
I did get the FQS Snapshot BOM top done but not quilted. Hopefully next quarter.
I also quilted about 1/3 of the Rabbits Prefer Chocolate and am working on completing the quilt this month.
Kelley's linen piece has trapunto heart feather wreaths done with wash away thread.
Another piece to finish in Q2.

|Here's my practice sampler using my straight ruler to FMQ the basic block pattern of a snq with a churn dash in the middle. |
I used a double curve ruler I bought from Amy's store. I love the curved cross-hatch in the corners.
I used a decorative stitch on my Janome Horizon to hide some practice threads that showed up too much on my first corner.
I like to use these practice quilt sandwiches as shelf liners for small kitchen appliances and small placemats depending on their size.
I'm linking this piece up with Amy's Free Motion Quilting Adventure and her Ruler Work Rocks Linky Party
