FMQ in Flame pattern. (As you can see my FMQ skills are a work-in-progress)
One of the early projects in my first year of quilting was a lap quilt for our living room. The two guys at home love it but they complain that it is too small. I really can't blame my youngest son, he is six-foot-five! So, a man-size quilt for my husband was put on my short list. I didn't plan a jelly roll quilt but I found a Comma roll at one of our local shops. Shock...our shops tend to run more traditional to cutesy. I settled on a pattern by Sweet Jane.
I ordered some extra yardage for the backing and to expand it to a more man-size proportion. I am on the home-stretch now and am down to just the squaring and binding. The only thing slowing me down at this point is that I am oh so busy at work! And, since we are small business owners work comes home with us. My free time has been starting late so that I have been working on a very old UFO embroidery project instead of this quilt. I have a 9:00pm cut-off for sitting down at the sewing machine and I can't seem to make it.
