I was able to finish my Fence Art this week. I really love how it turned out.

What I learned
I did end up stitching the outside edges of the blue fabric to minimize the amount of fraying. I love the look of the frayed edges but I'd rather that it didn't fray to nothing 😊
Final update - dowel painted!
- It took me a while to find the screw eyes - the tiny ones were with the picture framing stuff but the larger ones were elsewhere!
- I think that a fun, fall fence art piece would be cool.

Free Motion Mavericks
Welcome to week 348 of Free Motion Mavericks. Are you getting back into the swing of things, now that holidays and the summer is mostly over, and the kids may be back in school? I know that I'm looking forward to starting FMQ my son's quilt. I have no excuses left - it's no longer too hot!
We saw a few lovely quilts last time and even got a behind the scene look at digital custom long arm quilting from Rebecca. It's always great to learn about these things that look like magic to me 😊.
If you didn't see Frédérique's latest Bow Ties baby quilt, make sure to drop by. It really is lovely and colourful. It was simply quilted for maximum baby softness.
