Wonky/Improv Quilt is FINISHED!!!!

I should really call this quilt my "Learning Curve Quilt"! I learned so much from this quilt, especially the FMQ part. This was my first quilt quilted on my new Pfaff (Miss Frances). And although I struggled getting to know Miss Frances, she now is quilting wonderfully.

This quilt was so much fun because, by it's very wonky nature, it wasn't meant to be perfect! The quilting has some thread blobs, but all in all, it's soft and cuddly. It will make a wonderful quilt for the back of the sofa or down at the beach, it is meant to be used!

Today I'm linking up with A Quilt Story for Fabric Tuesday and Plum and June for Let's Get Acquainted and Free Motion by the River for Linky Tuesday

  3. Wonderfully worked wonky :o) It is the perfect quilt for all the wonderful FMQ designs.
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie

  4. It looks wonderful! And hooray for learning lots of new things. I feel like I haven't done that in a while, I've been happy sitting in my comfort zone. I should plan something soon that pushes boundaries, and maybe I'll end up with something I'm as happy with as you are with this quilt.

  5. Wonderful quilt and quilting. i especially adore the tree branch-ish looking style. i embrace imperfection all the time, or at least try too!
