Fall tablerunner & FMQ practise

Here is a table runner I made last week - the pattern it's from Fons&Porter's Love of Quilting magazine. It was my first time doing applique and I had lot of fun with it :) I would probably make different fabric choices if I had a fabric store's selection at home, but I wasn't patient enough to wait for an online fabric order to arrive.

Today, while blog hopping I found this great blog called Fluffy Sheep Quilting where Cindy is doing this fun thing called FMQ quilt-along. Every week there is a new FMQ pattern to practise and then you can link up your results on Cindy's blog next Friday. My FMQ skills consist mostly of sub-standard meandering, so I really need more practice. This is a perfect opportunity to do so and I'm joining the quilt-along. Ta-daaa! I'm joining late, so I skipped the first pattern (the wavy lines look scary) and practiced the drops and slate tile today - here is what I created:

Well- it's really windy today, so some of the drops are being blown away, but I guess it's not too bad for the first try... will work on it ;)

Looks pretty perfect if you ask me! Great job and you were right the first pattern was scary!

Looks super to me, but then coming from my perspective, It has to be good!

I quite liked the first pattern. Give it a go!

Good job! I had a little trouble with the first one, Shadow Wave. I did better on a second try at it. The Drop Art was easier, I like stitching curves.
