When I was making my 'Baby Gear' quilt, I had an idea for a mini quilt using the same block design. Two thirds of the design worked as planned, but the other third...it wasn't going to cut it. Instead of letting it go and chalking it up to 'lesson learned' (and a lesson was learned), I decided I may as well make something!
Improv + Squares:
|26" x 26"|
Pinned and ready for something...and then I thought this might be the perfect time to practice my free motion quilting.
So it began. Pebbles. Fingers. Wonky lines. It's all there along with the kitchen sink!
Why not go way out on a limb and use red thread on the creamy white?! It certainly stands out!
I discovered this teeny tiny black square while I was quilting. I thought it was worthy of it's very own shot!
The black backing allows for a much better visual! You're probably thinking 'this girl is all over the place'! Yep! That would resemble me! Because I rarely FMQ, I tend to go hog wild. That certainly could be why I can't master that pesky FMQ skill!
Regardless, it's fun to try every now and again! I just remind myself that most of my quilting flaws will be hidden once it's washed!
What's your favorite FMQ design?
