Good Morning, Quilters!
Do YOU remember those old bumper stickers… “I’d rather be fishing, or swimming, or skydiving or…
of course, quilting!
In my stash, I found a fat quarter sandwich with the step-outs for The Fish tutorial.
One “housecleaning morning” I filled it with more fish and other designs. (Because I’d rather do anything than dusting!)
CREATING FOCAL POINTS IN FMQ
It’s a little messy, but it works because there are focal points where your eye can rest.
There are heavily quilted areas and less densely quilted or “open” shapes. The areas that are more “open” like the fish and the star become focal points.
The pebbles and handwriting are also focal points, because they are double stitched. Always be careful of double stitching for that reason–it creates a focal point–wanted or unwanted!
What about YOU?
What are you doing today? (What would YOU rather be doing?)
We’d LOVE to hear!
Hope YOUR day is filled with “rathers”!
