Scroll Flower


I was hoping I would have practiced this free motion pattern more this week. In my own defense, I must admit that I had a very busy week! I took classes at MQX in Manchester, NH for 2 days. Last night, I attended the Friday Night Dinner also at MQX. Mark Lipinski was the speaker. I went on the Mystery Ride through my quilt guild today. That was an all day activity!  I had no time to practice! I did manage to try out this design a couple of times.

Amy's Free Motion Quilting Adventures sponsored this Scroll Flower design this past Monday. It looks so nice and easy when Amy quilts it on her video. I think this design is so much harder than it looks!
 
 
I think I need to make my stem a little shorter and learn to space the flowers a little better. I love the actual flower. I just have to think of a better way of getting there!! The black sample is my first attempt. I actually improve in the red sample but it's a little harder to see.
 
I think this would make a great all over pattern. I'd like to keep practicing. I have a quilt in mind where this design would look really nice.  Must practice!!

  1. It's a beautiful pattern and you have done a great job! I agree, practicing is the key, which I'm not good at at all! Don't think I have the patience - lol.

  3. For no practise, it's great!! I had an interesting time flowing from one flower to the next, as well.

  5. You did a nice job getting the flowers fairly evenly spaced. I want my stems shorter too
