FMQ...a sampling

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am really jazzed about the new found control and design ideas I have with FMQ. I implemented ALL of Leah's tool suggestions along with trying out different battings and thread. What advice would you give someone starting this project? PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE.

What you will need

  • Fat Quarter collection of shirting plaids and cotton prints
  • Moda Bella Solids charm pack "oatmeal"
  • Quilter's Dream Poly batting
  • Connecting Threads Elements thread and Isacord embroidery thread.

Q&A with ngcorliss

Projectpam asked:
Very nice! So, which batting did you like to quilt with?
ngcorliss answered:
For the quilting process they were all equally nice. After I washed them I did find that the cotton bat shrank the most while the poly & green bats allowed the quilting stitches to shine. I was very pleased with the green bat which is made entirely from recycled plastic bottles! I expect to use the green & poly bats more in the future.
