Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Little Fancy FMQ...

Hi, all!

Another week gone by - did you get lots done?  As you read this, I'm on my way to the quilt show in Paducah - I can't wait to see all that eye candy!!  (And stop off and indulge my addiction at Hancock's of Paducah.....  ;-)

I worked on a lot of things this week, but this quilt is my favorite finish for the week...

I played around with the quilting on this one, trying out some different designs in the borders.

See the clamshells in the orange border?

And loop-de-loops in the brown border...

With micro-stippling around the paper pieced fruits and veggies...

Aren't these blocks just gorgeous?  I wish I knew how to do paper piecing - but until I learn, I'll just enjoy the ones Sharon pieces!!\

And just for good measure, here's the pretty back that Pam pieced for this quilt!  Most days, she carries the title "Queen of Quilt Backs"!!


Now it's your turn!

What have you been working on this week?

Remember it doesn't have to be a finish - 

Just something you want to share!!

You have until Sunday night to link up -
And be sure to visit your fellow linkers
and see what they've been up to!
