FMQ Designs

I'm having fun trying out a whole bunch of free motion quilting designs on the BQ (Maple Island Quilts pattern) quilt. The quilt is proving to be a fabulous warm-up to better quilting that I'm putting into my Madrona Road challenge quilt. No pics of that quilt to share yet, but I can tell you it's 40" X 50" on a Kona white background, and it's densely quilted.

These are some of the designs I tried on the BQ quilt.










The designs aren't quilted perfectly, but practice makes perfect, right? I'm definitely lovin' my sewing room set-up, particularly the natural light that streams through the room's bay windows. Happiness! Linda

Seems to me that you are already a very competent machine quilter. It is fun practicing and trying new things isn't it, ?

Hi Linda, your machine quilting looks pretty perfect to me. That is my resolution for this year to learn to machine quilt. Blessings Sandra

Linda said...

Wow, it's looking good! I know what book you are working from too cause I've got it and I'm trying it out too. I really like your BQ quilt. I have had that pattern for years and have even bought fabric to make some quilts from it. I guess I better put it on the list to make up this year. Keep up the good work. Happy New Year too!

I think is all looks pretty cool, Linda! New stitches are stretching lessons, and you do good work in every quilt I see ~

Linda, your machine quilting is great and you are a real expert in it. Like it very much.

Your FMQ is looking very polished. Can't wait to see the "mystery modern quilt". Wish I was somewhere in your league!
Think I need to take a leaf from you and practice.

Your quilting looks great! Your "practice" stitching looks so fun. I hope to be able to do that in the near future. Enjoy!
