Little surprises

One beginner FMQ technique I like to suggest is stitching along the lines of a printed fabric to get a decorative design on the other side of your quilt sandwich. Here's me trying that technique on "Cloud Cover" from the Joel Dewberry Bungalow line. I enjoy the surprise of seeing the pattern created on the other side, and it's a nice easy technique for practicing getting the stitches where you want them.

It is my great joy and privilege to send you to Amanda Jean's blog, Crazy Mom Quilts today. I know you already know her blog, because she is amazing. This woman: pillar of positivity, sister of scrap, off the charts on the talented and humble meters. I look up to her so much, thank you for giving my book a squeeze Amanda Jean! She stitched up my favorite project from the book. You can head over right now and enjoy her post and giveaway.
