Free Motion Quilting sample

I really like machine quilting on most of my quilts and table runners and even my bags. I have done heaps of Stitch in the Ditch, stippling, rows and meanderings of machine quilting and felt the need to explore a bit more. I have done a few with swirls and found these to be a bit different to do but wanted something more. There is a challenge by SewCalGal and I have signed up for it.

The first month is with Frances Moore and she shows how to do a flowing leaf design. This is on Utube and it was great to watch and I really found it easy and enjoyable to do and did it all over a table runner I wanted to quilt.

You can see it if you squint your eyes….lol.

I have put the FMQ Challenge button on the side of my blog and it takes you to the challenge. I look forward to the next one :)

Hugs to all…….
