Scribble scribble scribble

I'm not saying I'm any good at FMQ but boy is it fun when you just scribble like a madwoman over some already scribbly fabrics.  This is my next Moda Bake Shop quilt so I can't show you more than a bit of scribbling but let me tell you that Malka Dubrawsky's new line, A Stitch in Color is A RIOT.  Put your sunglasses on for this quilt, pull out a Hawaiin shirt and make yourself a pina colada.  Is anyone else now singing - if you like pina coladas, gettin caught in the rain - or is that just me?

  5. I love the bright colours, I keep persevering with FMQ and gradually I am getting loops and swirls instead of jaggedness.

  11. "Yes I like Pina Coladas
    And getting caught in the rain
    I'm not much into health food
    I am into champagne
    I've got to meet you by tomorrow noon
    And cut through all this red-tape
    At a bar called O'Malley's
    Where we'll plan our escape."

    Nuff said? LOL..LOVE the song. LOVE the scribbles. I have been trying to decide a pattern for a soontoneedquilting project. thai is IT! Thanks!

  16. I think I need to make a collection of songs on my Ipod "Songs wot I like but shouldn't"!
    Loving the sneak peek - the snippets of images I have seen of Malka's new fabric make me eager to see what you have come up with.
