So first up today I decided to piece a batting for the practice quilt.
Then of course the kids wanted to swim. We fished this snake out of the pool.
I've seen this paisley design as a back ground on a lot of quilts. I think it will take some practice.
This was a small fan variation. The designs are so small that the stitches look huge. Eventually it occurred to me that I should turn down the stitch length.
The border was getting a little branching vine.
The top is called brain coral and the bottom is pebbling. I have been looking patterns up form Leah Day's web site. I think the quilt is about 1/3 done, so there is still plenty of room for more practice.
