Scrappy Play and Free Motion Quilting

After the precision piecing with the braid it was time for a little play.  I grabbed my scrap bins and with this as inspiration I began to play.
I wanted to add some quilting so I decided to try several free motion quilting designs.


Then I added a button and grabbed this little frame I found at a garage sale this last fall and put it to good use.
Pretty pleased with the results.
  I'll have my eyes peeled at thrift stores and garage sales (when it warms up or when I'm visiting my parents) in future for more cute little frames. 
Linking up with Sarah to get a little Whoop Whoop!
