My ALYoF July finish

I finished up my very own mini quilt in the flurry of sewing I did this past weekend. Here is my beauty!

SP Mini

I decided to try out a ton of different free motion quilting ideas on each block.

SP Bk 1

I think most of it turned into thread play.
Oh look a bird.
And a flower!

SP Bk 2

I'm soooo happy!

SP Bk 3

 And something about the crazy combination makes me smile.

SP Bk 4

Even the back makes me happy!

SP Back
