Free Motion Quilting Projects

More babies are on the way so I have been busy quilting. Here is a picture of my latest quilting panel. I just love the fun I have working on these little project. My control is improving but I need to improve my starts and stops as I tend to have a bit of  a thread nest to deal with.

PANEL FOR MY NIECE”S BABY

This is the panel I selected for my niece’s baby due in March. I lucked out by picking a panel by chance that will blend with her nursery decorations. I think it is very sweet. I have selected a blue piping and a yellow strip for the border.

CLOSE UP

This is a close up of the free motion quilting. I am using Leah Day’s book for some of the motifs. I am trying to make the motifs larger so that the quilt stays soft and cuddly. I tend to OVER QUILT and make my FMQ too dense resulting in a stiff quilt. The batting I selected is puffier/ loftier then the quilt I have used in the past.

BACKING SHOWING THE FMQ

This is the backing of the quilt top. YOU might be able to see some of my crummy starts and stops. I forget to bring up the bobbin thread when I start quilting, so I get thread nest I later have to fix. I have been burying my knots, but I am also trying the tiny stitch method.

MY next panel for the next baby. It is so darn cute!!!

I bought this last panel when I popped into my local quilt shop last week. I just thought it was adorable. I hope to do some trupunto style quilting in area of the panel. My husband’s best friend just had a grand-baby and I plan to send them this for Christmas…… I had better get quilting.
