This week's design was my all time favorite. Its an easy design but people who don't FMQ think its so complicated ;). I really love the the texture on the quilt. Here are some of pictures of the Paisley FMQ on my Shades of Blue quilt: Paisley FMQ with Circles - you see on the first block I tried to mix paisley with circles Paisley FMQ Paisley FMQ The past week was really productive for me. Finally my sewing machine started behaving and the quilting went really smooth. I almost quilted away 3 blocks. Just 2 more blocks to quilt approximately. I can't wait to finish this quilt soon. I was in a flow this week with FMQ, but did have stop and work on my piecing my Groovy quilt and work on the UFO. Which is always good. Here is pic of the whole quilt, I would love to make one in girl colors ;): Shades of Blue Quilt - almost done!
