This year is dedicated to the mastery of free motion quilting.
I have joined sewcal gal’s 2012 FMQ challenge. Anyone can
join in, whenever, so go ahead and sign up.
The piece above is a practice piece which will later grace my
two bedside tables. Essentially what I have done is
purchase a fabric with a leaf design and prepared it for
quilting. I have three layers, the top fabric, the wool batting
and the backing fabric and then pinned it in readiness to do
my free motion quilting. I have done a bit of thread
sketching within the leaves, which I am learning from Susan
Brubaker Knapp’s DVD’s and used the loopy loop design to
connect the leaves and as a filler stitch.
This is testing my endurance, but I will persevere! I can see
these lovely quilt table toppers near my bedside!
