Here is my FMQ challenge for May. The tutorial was by Leah Day who has been putting FMQ tutorials on her blog for over a year. Her tutorial was very good with lots of information on how to do it. The patterns were quite easy for me and fun to do. The one with straight lines didn't come out as good as the one with curved lines.
Leah Day also sells things on her web site and I have purchased some items from her. Her prices are very reasonable and I was happy with my purchases.
I was able to get most of the superhero capes made - I just need to put velcro on them. I have been trying to figure out a way to make Jonah's cape special and I think I will put some lightning bolts going down the sides of it. The capes are reversible, so the boys' will have batman on one side and superman on the other side. The girls' cape will have a princess crown on one side and batgirl on the other side.
After getting most of the capes almost finished, I needed to work on something else for a while, so I decided to start quilting my Kaleidoscope quilt. I didn't know what to do, but after thinking about it and looking in some quilting books, I decided to quilt the circles with large "flower" petal shapes and then quilt some feathers in the corners.
I'm happy with the way it is turning out. I'm not sure how I will quilt the border - maybe echo quilting around the flowers.
If you have any suggestions, let me know.
We're very thankful that DS has safely returned from the middle east yesterday. We'll see him when we go to Jonah's birthday party!!
