Presenting my Dead Simple QAL top, I'm so happy with how it turned out! Also pleased it was sunny this morning so I could get these pictures (yesterday was a wash out despite our best wishes Nicky!!). I love the palette and the colours seem to change so much in the light but I love these bright shots:

Having a helper makes taking pictures so much easier!

Here's one taken in a shadier spot (with feet!):

I'm going to piece the back using scraps from cutting the fabric and what was left over. It might not look as tidy as the front but I have a few patterned fabric scraps to add in to so it should be fun.

On to this weeks Free Motion Friday courtesy of Cindy over at Fluffy Sheep Quilting (she is doing such a fantastic job and I always really look forward to seeing what challenge is next!)

This week was Bright Star and honestly I didn't think I was going to like it... so wrong!! I loved it! It just made lots of sense to me and was the easiest for me so far, I would definitely use this in the future. The only thing that sort of annoyed me was getting the lines an equal distance apart from each other so that the spaces between the lines were even but really I'm pretty sure fmq isn't about being perfect and it would maybe look too 'done' if it was (yeah, totally just telling myself that but don't really believe it!!).
Here's my effort from the front:

and the back:

I'm a happy fmqing bunny today!!

Linking up to Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts and Thank God It's Finished Friday, which seems to be having a house party this week ;)
