Free Motion Quilting

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I can make the free motion quilting on a domestic sewing machine. I do think it is very hard to learn, but with practice I will be satisfied - sometimes. Love the shell motive, feather motive and ekkoing, I hate stippling. I can't make them great, but with lot of practice I will get there - sometime.... What advice would you give someone starting this project? Do a lot of practice - and you will love to machine quilt.

What you will need

  • Cotton fabric and my thread is egyptian cotton.
