Well, looks like the official FMQ fun is coming to an end as this is the last week for the link-up with Cindy at Fluffy Sheep Quilting. I've had a great time trying these new patterns and hope that I can keep myself motivated to continue practicing.
The design we were to attempt this week is Superstar, which looks fun and fairly easy though I attempted it on my own a few weeks ago and was a bit frustrated.
Here is this week's attempt, not great but acceptable...
Honestly, sometimes when I try these FMQ patterns I can't really see myself actually using them on a quilt. But this morning I saw Brigitte's version of the Drop Art one that she used on a customer's quilt and it looks fabulous!
In other fun news, here are a few giveaways going on now in case you missed them...
Erin at Why Not Sew is giving away a FQ bundle of Cosmo Cricket's Circa 1934 from her new sponsor The Fat Quarter Shop. So go help her celebrate and while you're there check out her tutorial for a paper-pieced Kitchen Aid mixer block. It's incredible!
Rebecca of Our Busy Little Bunch is hosting a giveaway by the Intrepid Thread for a bundle of the newly released Pear Tree line, open until next Friday. She also has a giveaway for 9 yds of Pellon batting that closes Monday, so hop over there to enter.
Laura of Needles, Pins, and Baking Tins is giving away two charm packs of It's a Hoot by Momo to celebrate her followers so stop by and tell her a joke to enter the contest.
Have a great weekend and good luck in the giveaways!
