Welcome to week 396 of Free Motion Mavericks. Sorry for the delay. I guess I'm more ready for the weekend than I thought! 😁
Playing with Oranges and Lemons!

What I learned
- I had several small squares of orange fabric scraps that I was able to use for the 4 patch.
- I was worried that the centre blocks would be too much but since they're surrounded by the outside border, it frames them well and the overall effect isn't "too much"!
- I was going to embroider the border with more than the running stitch, but since I ended up making it quite narrow, I decided for just a thin line of running stitch. I didn't stitch through all of the layers since I would have needed a thimble and didn't have one with me.
- I loved FMQ those lemon, orange, lemon and lime slices!😊
