I am happy to say that I have finished the Angela Walters “Flora and Foliage” challenge……
I cannot begin to tell you everything that I learned from this quilt!!!
I learned that uneven pebbles look great…..
…and that I love this flower meander and paisley meander……
But, when it came to the elongated swirl and swirl chain, I was out of my league!!! I practiced and practiced and FINALLY figured out that I was not making the initial “swoop” long enough. I was pleased with the final result and happy that I had persevered…..
I chose to do a wishbone design on one side but struggled with getting it started…..
Fortunately I finally got it on track!!!
I decided to do a mixture of swirls and paisleys on the other side of the swirl chain and was happy that I found it easy to move between the different designs.
The final design was the Elongated Feather Swirl and this one was a lot of fun to do…..
Overall, I am super pleased with this challenge and what I learned and cant wait to start on one of the other two that I recently purchased!!
AND, I got to mark it off of my task board…..
Come back tomorrow for an idea about how to practice free motion quilting!!!

Stunning! How do you cut/sew all of those curves so perfectly?
Hey Mary. I wish that I could take credit but it is a panel that was designed for the quilting challenge!!
Thanks Andrea. I am looking forward to starting the next one.
It has worked really well and definitely served its purpose. And in the end you have a lovely piece.
I really like it and especially the new things that I learned!!
