Although I have been studying and doing a few small pieces of free motion quilting over the years, I was never very serious about FMQ. It would be something I was playing with. I still will take my really big quilts to a long armer, why wouldn’t I when I have several talented nationally known long armers in my quilt. ( Links to be provided) This year I want to really work at FMQ on my own as I feel that it is a talent I want to learn and will need to know. I will retire someday and will not be able to afford to have the quilts done by a long armer. I also like to make baby quilts and those are small enough for me to do.
I have been studying Leah Day’s BLOG and her current FREE MOTION QUILT ALONG. She discusses quilting on real quilts. I do not plan to go into detail on what I have learned on this post; but I will address it in the future. Today I am just posting the pictures of what I have accomplished so far. Frankly, it is too late at night to go into any detail.
I will be back over the weekend after classes to update this post … so check back again.
