Colleen/Oz - Day 1 - FMQ Challenge

Today I began the 14 days of Free Motion Quilting. This quilt is a donation for a fundraiser for my Guild. The large print is a nice linen, I have chosen to outline quilt the flowers in the 9 blocks then echo in the background. I am using a variegated thread in the sashing because I want the quilting to  gradually fade away against the lacy looking print. Kind of now you see it, now you don't. I will change to a matching thread for the linen background areas. This pattern was on the cover of American Patchwork and Quilting magazine Dec. 2009.
Happy Quilting!
