Pink Poodles

Someone donated this fabulous pink poodle fabric to my local Project Linus chapter.  I liked it so much as a large piece of fabric that I decided to keep it as a whole cloth quilt and use it for some free motion quilting practice.

I am just not sure if I am ever going to get the hang of free motion quilting.  I haven't completely given up yet, but I do much better with lines and I think I'm getting close to be resigned to sticking with straight line quilting.  We'll see.
Here's the back.  I back almost all of my Project Linus quilts with fleece.  It makes for a quilt that is a great weight and it's soft and cuddly.
And a close-up of those fabulous poodles!

Poodles was item #20 on my list of Q3 goals for the globally hosted finish along.  And, ironically, last on my list but first finished.


  1. Your quilting looks fine! For an easy free motion, try doing figure 8s in a row, then on the next row, put the top loop between two bottom loops on the previous row, make sense? It is fast, easy, gets you in a rhythm that is sustainable and looks nice.

  2. This fabric print is adorable, I am glad you were able to use it without cutting it up. The quilting looks great.

  3. I'm still learning FMQ. Yours looks good.

  4. This is my first time i visit here. I found such a substantial number of interesting stuff in your blog especially its examination. Really its inconceivable article. Keep it up. blue nose pitbull puppies
