Amy from Amy's Free Motion Quilting Adventures is featuring grid based designs for free motion quilting this month. I've done very little in this area. I really needed to try something out. She had many examples on her blog but I decided to try this one. I've done a lot of this back and forth looping but never in a grid format.
I bought this when I took classes at MQX back in April. I took a class with Gina Perkes. She showed us many different way to use grids. I ran to the vendors and bought this one. However, it's one inch squares which I thought may be too small for my practice piece. This stencil is easy to use with Pounce chalk so I could have used the chalk and erased lines to make it 2 inches square. I decided making the grid myself was just as easy! Sometimes you just have to do things the old fashioned way!
Here's my grid all filled in! I had a little trouble maneuvering around at first but it did get easier. I would like to try it with the smaller squares. It's a nice way to fill up background space.
I'll be linking up over at Amy's blog. Go have a look see! Also, Craftsy is having a huge sale! There's a class I've been looking at that's less than half price! Great deal! Enjoy your weekend!
