FMQ Sampler Quilt 2016

Here is where I would like to share with you a quilt-as-you-go free motion sampler quilt that I am making during the course of the year.  I am following instructions from the book 'First Steps to Free Motion Quilting' written by Christina Cameli.  


I am also using some of the designs that Christina published in another of her books called 'Step-by-Step Free Motion Quilting'.



My first block is quilted with a design which Christina calls 'Leafy' and was completed in March. (You may have to click on the photograph to see the quilting more clearly).



Block two: Spirals:



Block three: Loops:



Block four: Vines:



Blocks one to four:




Block five: Strings of daisies:



Block six: Spiral vines:



Block seven: Beads on a string:



Block eight: Branching spirals:



Blocks five to eight:




Block nine: Flower power:



Block ten: Rectangular meander:



Block eleven: Marbles:



Block twelve (the final block): Combination:



Blocks nine to twelve:



Here is the finished quilt. I have had this pieced together for some time but only recently added the binding and finished it off.
