purple maze

YEAH! It's finished.  This is my practice quilt. Charlotte and Janie said it was OK to make a few mistakes so I outdid myself! Mistakes galore, but I learned a lot from them and I might repeat some of the on purpose!  I did every kind of free motion quilting I could work in on these!

I like the partial dresden plate in the corners.

The tiny bright yellow dots are thread turds.  I did not do my direction changed fast enough and the machine left these little turds. 

Turds don't show up so much on the top... :)

Lots of thread painting on this...should have done it BEFORE sandwiching it...All that stitching made it shrink unevenly so the border looked more like a ruffle.  I stretched it onto a frame to try and work that out but it still is not quite right.
