Free Motion Fillers, Vol. 2

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I have quilts made and handed down to me by my grandmother and great-grandmother. I am sure they would smile their wide Texas smiles to see that I am following in their footsteps. However, the machine I use (Bernina) would most definitely blow their minds, as they both either pieced or quilted by hand or on a treadle Singer Sewing Machine. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the lessons bit by bit and then go directly to the machine before you lose your resolve. Dive right in and sew it! I know it is good to practice, practice, practice; but I did not - I went straight to my machine and got right into the project. This project is SO doable and the bag you end up with is gorgeous!

What you will need

  • Robert Kaufman Kona cotton
  • 3 shades of purple and black

Q&A with Joy Healy

Pam NZ asked:
WOW! Well done you, your bag looks fantastic and in my favourite colours too!
Joy Healy answered:
Thank you, Pam. You don't realize how beautiful the filler designs are until you see them take shape right in front of you as you stitch them. Hmmmm....many more projects to use them in in my future!
