St Paddy Day Sock Swap

I received this sweet swap from Michele, she was my secret partner she sent these cute socks along with this cute paper cupcake she made and filled with apple taffy along with a bag of kisses.
Thanks Michele.

A year ago or more a friend was cleaning out her sewing room and gave me all sorts of goodies. This used to be a small quilt top, she had the batting and a back on it. I found out her dog got a hold of it and ate a couple bites out of it. I cut it in half and practiced my free motion quilting on it. I saw this wonderful curly q pattern on Pinterest and it worked, I actually free motioned quilted and it looked good. I was pretty excited because previous attempts had not turned out very nice. I think once I gave myself permission to cross lines and that no FMQ police were going to show up at my door and who cares if it's not perfect, I was able to do it. Now I have a KU tshirt quilt top to quilt for my husband and it's been sitting around for 7 years.

Way to go with the FMQ! I'm sure that the more you do it, the more comfortable you will get with it.
