What are you most proud of? I don't know really - I was pleased with the way this turned out, and fairly pleased with my FMQ, for a change. As the back is quite plain fabric it shows up the FMQ very well, so it's just as well it's a bit better than most of my efforts! When I posted a picture of the unquilted block, someone remarked that my two flowers looked like a couple of Triffids, which amused me greatly! Since then, this has been my Triffid block!

Clever clever clever! Love how you quilted this block. Neato.

Thank you! The sunshine on that particular day threw the quilting into relief, so the picture's quite exaggerated.

Wow is right. Did you draw out you design before quilting it?

No - I didn't draw anything, but just "winged" it. Couldn't have done it without Leah Day's class though! She makes it all so easy!
