More FMQ Designs


I've been trying out a few different free motion quilt patterns. I tried some swirls. They're hard for me. I'm trying to make them all the same size and as uniform as possible. It's so easy to make them too small or lopsided. I'm getting more comfortable with them. It's certainly going to take more practice!

 
 
It looks better from a distance! Everything all sleeps to blend much nicer!
 



I  don't really know the name of this pattern. I refer to it as a double loop.  These are fun and easy but you have to get a rhythm to really get them going. I tried to keep them all uniform in size with the same amount of space between them. This picture shows how my free motion patterns fit with my feathers. I really like how it's coming out!
 
This quilt is taking me such a long time to quilt! I designed the quilt and had absolutely no idea how to quilt it. I had too many decisions to make! Now that I'm nearing the end, I feel I've learned a lot. I have a better idea of how to pick quilting designs. It's been a great learning experience for me.

Here's the vintage quilt with the binding all attached! I can't believe this quilt is finished. It felt like a privilege to me ...
