FMQ Friday - stomach lining & Greek Cross Boy Quilt

yes, stomach lining - that's the name of the FMQ pattern we practiced this week over at Fluffy Sheep Quilting - not very appetizing I know. And I have to tell you I didn't like it too much - I can meander, but when I had to meander in the circular pattern and make the loops small I had a hard time. So my stomach lining looks like it has ulcers in it ;)

And I FINALLY finished my quilt for Across the Sea Modern Quilt Along - I know I'm a month late, but better late than never. The thing is that I planned it to be a little boy quilt, but when I finished the top it didn't feel like a kiddy quilt. SO I put it aside. Then I got a suggestion to add some applique and that's what I did. I think the sea creatures look good with the color scheme and I'm pretty happy with it. It still needs to be washed, so here is just a quick peek:

Well I don't think your stomach lining has too many ulcers in it! It looks good you can definitely see the spiral pattern!

I don't see your ulcers either...I think you did a great job. Sometimes you have a little jagged curve, but that's why we're practicing - we all have them. Keep up the great work!
