    1. Thanks! The friend I made it for had a lot of fun picking out the fabrics: she’s got an excellent eye. And I didn’t quite believe it was done, at first — it’s very exciting to have it finished! :)

  1. Very impressive for your first time free motion quilting! I love the color choices as well. And I’m with you, outside photos always seem better for quilts. Congrats on the finish :-)

    1. Thank you! The quilting process ended up being more forgiving than I expected, which was a relief! And I was so pleased it was nice enough to photograph outdoors: the colors are much truer.

  2. Your FMQ looks pretty good! I did my first machine quilting last week (not FMQ) and had so much fun, I want to try FMQ next. I’m glad to hear it’s a bit forgiving! Your finished quilt looks gorgeous :)

    1. Thank you so much! FMQ isn’t as scary as I thought it was. That said, I’m pretty sure zig-zags are the easiest way to try FMQ for the first time: it’s hard to mess it up, since it’s supposed to look angular and unintentional. Next time I think I’ll try curves.

  3. I found you on Lily’s Quilts small blog link party and anyone who mentions the zombie apocalypse in their profile is worth following as far as I’m concerned!

    1. Excellent. I used to have a really good plan for the zombie apocalypse, with a roommate of mine, but then we moved out of our remarkably bunker-like apartment. ;)
