Quilt Plan

Last night (Friday) I started cutting some fabrics for a quilt top.  This quilt is for use in an online class on Free Motion Quilting (FMQ)

There are seven squares each of seven fabrics.  I tried to use what I had and make a ROYGBIV quilt (roy g biv in case you don't know is a  mnemonic for remembering the colors of the rainbow.)  These will all be set in black and if I don't mess it up, will look like this
Then in the class on   Craftsy Free Motion Fillers Vol. 1 by Leah Day I will be doing a different filler design in each colored rectangle.    This should be a great learning experience for me and the big plus is that I will have a finished quilt when I am done.

However, today I am going to meet a blogger from Australia who is visiting the USA.   I hope to have pictures to post tomorrow!

Have a great weekend.

love this - it is going to be so pretty when you finish quilting. I'm still jealous at how good you're getting with your FMQ.

Wow, Roy G. Biv should be your middle name! This is about as colorful as it gets. One caution for the black frabic, I had terrible luck with Kona bearding. Beware!
