Anything Goes Quilt 'n Sew #22 - Free Motion Quilting

I've had a terrible cold this past week, and to top it, I still don't feel my old self.  Getting proper rest is the key right?  Well not with a two year old and two teenagers writing exams.  We all know how it is, Moms never get sick.  The one thing they do notice is not having supper ready on time, they forget to ask why though.. Good thing my husband is not fussy, so mostly it was eggs on toast, beans on toast.. jam on toast.  :-)

Before my cold really kicked in I did have some time to play around free motion quilting.  I just wanted to practice straight lines and then some random fmq designs before I jump in to quilting the baby quilt I've been working on.  If you've been following me on Instagram you would already seen these...

On Friday I submitted on my quilts to the Quilting Gallery's Quilters' Show and Tell contest, and I'm happy to announce that I am in the lead with 93 votes.  Thanks so much to every one who voted for me!  The guest judges still have to vote for their favorites, so I guess we'll know soon enough if my quilt won.  Thanks again!

Sew now it's time for this week's linky party

It's Monday and a new week, so lets all share some of our projects, please link up any current projects you've been working on, anything at all...  This link is open for a week and will run every Monday.  Remember to come back next week, or follow my blog to get regular updates.

If you wish feel free to add any other blog posts you write during the week, since this linky stays open for a full week, I think its a great idea to share and keep sharing.

All I ask is that you either add the 'Anything Goes' blog button to your sidebar or add a text link to your blog post, and comment on a few of the other links too, share the love and make this weekly link party a fun way to connect.

Hope you are feeling better. Your FMQ is first class, like always. I like the way you can just put designs together and make it look great.
Great job in the Quilter's Show and Tell contest. Will keep my fingers crossed for you to win.

Ah, so sorry to hear you have not been well and there I was bothering you with helping me with my blog!!! You should have said you were under the weather. Hope you're feeling better now. Dave is also feeling a bit fluey so hope I don't get it. I'm sure your quilt will top them all - holding thumbs!
