Sunday FMQ Practice - Growth Chart

I spent my Sunday quilting this sweet Growth Chart that my sister Janet put together for her newest grandson Eric.

She asked me to quilt it back in August and it's finally getting the priority it deserves (sorry Sister - ready for Christmas ? )...

The panels and coordinating fabric are from "Susybee" - aren't they darling ?   They whip up fast and are great gifts for the little folks in your lives.

There are several different designs including a Lamb and a Bird.   I quilted "Mary had a Little Lamb" back in August.

I recently purchased Angela Walters new book "Free Motion Quilting" and I used the "Allover Leaves" design to do the border on the Giraffe.

BTW:  I love the book -- well worth having if you are doing your own quilting.

I had a blast doing this and it's a great way to practice, practice, practice!  

We're buckling down for the rain and wind expected to hit the Northeast today.

I think we're ready personally - as are our kids and our extended family.

Be safe everyone.

Thanks for stopping by.
