Here is a nice purple flower.
Wow! yellow and orange flower! I love yellow. The plums are Kaffe fabric.
Here is the block I revised:
New version with vivid blue hexie flower with rose center. The blues in the little flowers respond better to this combination of rose and teal.
On another note, it has been a depressing week. In the middle of fmq practice, my beloved Juki froze. It is only nine months old and has not seen that much use. I also oil and clean after each bobbin. I bought it online from Sewing Machines Plus. So far, I have not been able to speak to a service rep but it is early days. I bought the Juki online because they never have problems. I will keep you updated. Everything may work out just fine. I have a nice Pfaff so I am not entirely bereft.
Anyway...here is some fmq practice I was able to do.
Now before you get excited about how talented I am, I copied this design. The original design is by Valerie Smith. You can see a photo of her design in Machine Quilting Unlimited Jul/Aug 2016.
I am also following Lori Kennedy at Inbox Jaunt. She is making a weekly sunflower sampler. We have completed week 2-the flower center. I am quilting with 30 wt thread -Madeira rayon embroidery thread-I have a couple spools of this. So first 50 wt and now 30 wt. Okay-where is that rut?
Well, that's all for now. Here is hoping I cheer up and my Juki issues are resolved. In the meantime, some linkies are calling my name: Bambi's show and tell, Em's Scrapbag, Patchwork times, Esther's blog, Let's Bee Social, Whoop-Whoop and Off the wall Friday.
