To be honest I have not had a chance to dip into it as I have been away the whole of Jan travelling (I know its a hard life) and now settling back into work and home routine in Feb. On the other hand I was almost going to put it in the too hard [email protected]! But then I can across Joan’s Blog and I got re-inspired. Have a look at Joan’s Blog and you will see what I mean. Love the FMQ pieces she has produced.
My previous FMQ experience
When I first learnt to quilt, the final lesson was to learn how to Free Motion Quilt your quilts and I thought, hah! no way I am going to be able to do this! But did give it a try.
So my very first attempt at FMQ and Viola!
After this I took two classes with my local sewing shops Addicted to Fabrics (Cannot remember who with) and Hobbysew in Canberra with Helen Godden. Both classes took me a bit further, so now I can at least move the fabric around rather than being frozen in time! (ha, ha).
My very early FMQ samples
As you can see they are a variety of squiggles. I hope to get beyond this now and probably produce something more artistic :-))))
So I look forward to the March 2012 challenge, will get my quilt sandwiches ready, set go!
