TGIFF - February OMG Achieved

My February OMG goal was to quilt the Additions baby quilt, which was designed by Julia @ Jada's Quilting Adventures designed the pattern, and I was one of her testers.

Even though I had decided to do boxy meander FMQ, I had been procrastinating for weeks because I thought it would be difficult.  What an awesome motif!  I definitely need more practice and see where I need to improve, but this is a motif that I will definitely use again.




This is the second finish of my Q1 FAL goals that I set back in January.


Kona used:  Yarrow

  7. Often the simplest quilting designs are the most effective, aren't they?
    Well, the ones that LOOK simplest, even if sewing them scares the whoopsies out of us.
