Free Motion Friday (A Day Late) - Just Another Brick in the Wall

So the lovely Cindy set us the task of slate tiles for week 3 of Free Motion Friday.  I missed last week because of forgetfulness, and so I couldn`t miss this one.  So albeit a day late, here`s my effort.  First up is my initial go which turned into a doodlefest - you`ll see that my `slates` were a little wonky as I think I was tilting the fabric sandwich like I tilt my paper when writing.


...and here`s my best effort which although it`s more brick wall than slate floor, I`m not so unhappy with it.


So with my mum winging her way home in the big silver bird as I write, normal service resumes.  We had a lovely last afternoon together today but more of that tomorrow. For now I`m linking up with Cindy - pop over and see what the rest of the class got up to.  I`m off to watch some quality TV X Factor.

I admire your efforts, I tried free quilting a couple of times but I got discouraged, I was stuck like a pole in concrete that wouldn't move in any direction. What am I doing wrong?

They're great! Doodle away - it's all about the practice, relaxing and getting comfortable so create what ever is in your mind :) Still, I"m totally impressed with your tiles...
