FNWF


I joined in with Wendy and Friends for Friday Night With Friends,thankyou Wendy for hosting and to see what the other ladies got up to go here.


I decided to try my Full line stencil out with the pounce pad to do some FMQ


These are the sewing marks thsat you follow when FMQ


I am really pleased with how it turned out for my first go.


And this is the back version, i can see that i am going to have fun with these stencils.


Plus i went to watch my GD Elissa play in the Grand Finals of basketbal,boy what a match,they won by 2 goals and i watched on the edge of my seat,great match girls,with both teams playing so well.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Cheers Shez xx

  4. Looks like you had great success with those stencils. What stitch size did you use? I gather you used the darning foot ? As you know, I am quite new at machine quilting so I am learning through you now lol. Your grand daughter is gorgeous!

  16. Your free motion quilting looks great. That's a great tool to have until you can get used to doing it on your own. I like that! Congratulations on your GD's win!
