Freemotion Quilt

I have had so much fun practicing freemotion quilting. This whole quilt is all Angela's designs. She has some tutorials on YouTuble and this flower design was one of them. It starts with a swirl then echoes out. I could keep it small or just keep echoing and making really big like what you see below.



 Here's another close-up of most of the quilting designs. I don't usually keep my practice pieces but this one I couldn't throw away. I pulled out an old yellow fabric from my stash and bound it.


I think this is one of those quilts that I will look back sometime down the road and see how far I've gone with machine quilting. If you're afraid of free motion quilting, I say just do it. You would be amazed at what you can do.

Your practice work is beautiful. Definitely worthy of being bound.
