Free Motion Quilting
Well today I have been inspired by Laura Lachore …. Laura recently posted a picture of a quilt she had made as part of a quilt along project on the Quilt Club Australia Facebook Page. Laura blogged about the quilt along and has been kind enough to share the address which I now share with you Free Motion Quilt – Quilt along.
So I made up a few block ‘blanks’ and headed out to Ellie-Mae’s place.. she is my inspiration and leader in the ‘you can do it’ cheer squad. So my first block followed Lauras blog and this is what i did:
Ok I thought that was quick and painless…. at this stage Ellie suggests a go at a more feathered type of pattern.. and I came up with this….
Now I know it isn’t really a feather (yet) but it is getting a little more creative… for my third go I decided to let the creativity flow and not freak out by what ‘might happen’ and came up with this:
I am pretty happy with this one. There is a ways to go yet.. but what fun. The down side is I have to go to work tomorrow and won’t get to sew.. Bring on 3pm I say… I think I could be having a lot more FMQ adventuring!! Loving it!
See you tomorrow with more pictures of my adventures in sewing!
