Stash Play and FMQ

The oh - so - talented M-R over at Quilt Matters
is starting a new linky party to encourage all of us scardy cats to make an attempt at picking fabrics from our stash and using Design Seeds.
Isn't that at fabulous idea!
So, I picked this photo from Design Seeds...
 
Then, I went off to my fabric cupboard to see what I could come up with!

Pearl Bracelet by Lizzy House;Outfoxed by Lizzy House; Echo-Florine by Lotta Jansdotter; Je Vous En Prie by Yuwa; Baby Safari by Corina Gardner
 I'm pretty pleased with my selection, and it really didn't take much time at all, especially since I have my stash so neatly organized using comic book back boards!
Linking up with MR

Now, on to my FMQ!!
I've had A Groovy Kind of Love basted since last week but didn't know what I wanted to do with it from there!
So, I spent quite a bit of time pouring over the videos from Leah Day and came up with a few ideas.
I decided to do the lightest colour first so the quilting might not show up as much!!
Here is Pebble Loop

 Not totally disgusting! I think I should go back and do some more echo around the loops though.
What do you think?
Or maybe a stipple?
Not sure, but at least it is a start!

Oh I love that colour palette you chose:)

I love the palette you picked. I have to try this challenge. Your quilting is coming along very nicely. Maybe some more echoing would fill in a bit more but I am not an expert. I love the Pebble Loop.

Oooh, that's a great palette, Patti! You nailed it! Great job on the FMQ too. You could do an echo, loopy loo or stipple, but it also looks great like that -- kind of vine-like.

Oooh, loving the quilting. The colour choice is lovely, and a great way to choose colours that look great together

Love the palette and the quilting! Not disgusting at all!

PS I've got to stop spending so much time on blogs, so as you have [Goggle Plus] there will be times when I hit that rather than actually comment.  The + will translate as " I came, I read, I had to dash, but I did enjoy the visit". I hope you're ok with this, and obviously understand when you do the same :-)
