FMQ Challenge-March

It's cutting it a bit fine, but I did get it done before the end of the month.
The lesson this month came from Ann Fahl.  She recommended going beyond the basic stipple stitch,  Now to me, the meander and stipple stitch aren't that easy, but it's definitely got easy with the free motion embroidery I've been doing.

I decided to go with swirls, as it went with the idea of cats playing with wool.

This is the most comfortable I've felt whilst free motion quilting, I'm even tempted to give this a go on a larger quilt.

It is a very good combination of the design and the quilting. The back side is also interesting!

It looks good! About the only FMQ I've done is loops like that. It gets the job done! :0)
