FMQ Pebbles




Just a quick post to show you my latest Free Motion Quilting. I'm still quilting between channels but this time I've decided to free motion pebbles. They are by no means perfect but as a whole look pretty good. You can see my blue markings where I have measured and marked the channels. It's a bit time consuming but it's a nice look.

Here's a different view.

 
I actually improve while I quilt. My beginning pebbles aren't quite as good as the ones at the end of my quilt session.  It's too bad these improvements don't carry on from day to day but maybe they will after I've practiced even more. The pebbles are a nice break from the feathers I've been quilting
 
Have a nice weekend! Those of us in the northeast can look forward to more snow on Monday! When will it ever end?? 21 more days until spring!!

  1. Your pebbles are coming along nicely. I always like the effect, but they are soooooo time consuming

  2. The pebbles look good. It must be hard to keep them round and still fill the space right up to the edges of the channel. Great job!

    1. Keeping them round can be so hard but they seem to look good when all together. I've got to keep practicing!!

  3. They look great Rosemary. It is hard to keep control of the shape when free motion quilting and don't forget not all pebbles are round

    1. Thank you for the encouragement. Circles are such a hard shape! I try telling myself that nature is not perfect! I'll keep practicing!
