I decided to give a simple free motion quilting lesson in our guilds newsletter.
Lesson #1 consisted of using a stencil for the center, echo quilting around the stencil, then finishing with a meandering/stipple with loops.
|I also gave instructions on constructing a pillow cover out of the little quilt top. |
So this is my version from the lesson. Very simple but a fun project for the beginner free motion quilter.
|I used color crayons to darken the vine stencil design. Crayons are so versatile. I lightly colored until I liked what I saw, then heat set it with an iron and cover cloth to protect the iron.|
I haven't been doing as much sewing and quilting lately because I decided to put the garden in this year!!! I am so happy about it and excited. In six days, the seeds are starting to pop up and the plants I put in are already showing growth!!! I am hoping to be making salsa in the fall from this garden, and eating fresh vegies through the summer!! It's so good to be back outside working!!! I love gardening. My greenhouse is even doing better now that I got it cleaned out. I am planning on a really fun and busy summer for sure!!
Happy Quilting, Take Care, and keep those scissors sharp!!! Martha
