Progressing My Machine Quilting
Over the years since I have been quilting, I have always quilted all my quilts. I started off, as is quite common, with the standard meander free motion quilting. That was followed by a basic loop meander and as my confidence grew, I ventured into trying more and more free motion quilting. Eventually, I talked myself into trying free motion feathers and (very timidly) tried my hand at some standard free motion feathers. My ‘feathers’ aren’t as bad as I thought they might be so I was encouraged to continue to practice them. I’m still practicing ‘feathers’ and have tried a fair range of feather variations. They are improving and I will continue on this venture:)
Along the way, I have also purchased a large number of quilting rulers. In an effort to specifically not fall into the trap of being ‘too scared’ to use them, I have made a point of creating at least a couple of dozen quilt tops from my stash.
The idea is three fold -:
- to use my stash
- specifically use my quilting rulers to come up with a wide range of quilting designs and
- become more confident in ruler quilting.
I will also combine free motion quilting within these quilts as well.
If you double-click on the above image, it will bring up a larger image where you will be able to see the quilting in detail.
The quilts in the below galleries are my efforts to date in this venture.
