Free Motion Quilting Fun


I'm having a really fun time trying out some new moves - FMQ moves that is!  I made this Over and Under quilt using Lori Holt's Sew Cherry fabric over a year ago and finally decided to drag it into the light of day and quilt.  After making my dad's quilt, I've had an itch to expand my FMQ skills.  On this baby, I made giant flowers in the white negative space and now I'm making a skinny loop in the strip area that kind of reminds me of ribbons interweaving across the quilt top.  Don't ask me how long it will take or how many bobbins I'll go through...Thank goodness for Connecting Threads' giant spools!

Your FMQ looks great Emily! I love the big flowers in the white space. I've been needing to improve on my FMQ skills beyond stippling, and I will have to try this. it's gorgeous!
