WIP Wednesday!

Been dabbling this week...

First, finished my last 8 'Beads on a String' for February Block Lotto.  
This picture shows all 9 for this month.





I found the first one to be quite challenging but once I had the technique down the rest went rather quickly.

I continued on my Free Motion Quilting Sampler Quilt using Leah Day's designs 31 through 40...

Here's the front...

 And the Back...
These are a lot harder to see in the multi-colored background so here are a few close ups to view...






I have added a page to my blog to update the placement of each square into the quilt.  Check it out!!

And lastly I played with my stash using one main fabric plus four 'shades of purple' fabrics incorporating the disappearing 4-patch design.
Have 3 of each of these blocks - 12 total and plan to add a border.

I've linked up with

Those bead blocks are so cool. I love the contrast the dark fabric provides.

The bead blocks look good. (I made some too!)

I love your FMQ project! Yesterday, signed up for a crazy quilt class on Craftsy.com, with the idea it would be a FMQ sampler! And now I see your project for the first time. Amazing. :-)

The blocks are beautiful. You have a great start!

Your free motion quilting looks great!

Fabulous free motion quilting, Marie, especially in view of the fact that you were working on patterned material. I usually get distracted by prints and lose the plot...
