Free Motion Quilting

I spent a bit of time practicing some free motion work earlier this week.



I’m not really over the moon about any of these. 
I was trying to come up with a good idea for quilting my pillow top for the Intrepid Thread challenge. In the end, I went with swirls.


I spent a ridiculous amount of time yesterday morning looking for my box of zippers. I want to finish this today, so it may end up without one!

I also hope to get a QOV loaded up today. But first there is work and then visiting a friend.

Have a lovely day!

  1. Katy, I think you did a wonderful job! Was this done on a larger long arm or on a quilting machine?

    It’s clear you have more talent in your pinky finger than I have in my whole body. Even your “doodles” are inspiring to view!

  3. Wow….amazing. I’ll get there someday……..

    Your FMQ would make good coloring book pages!

    They look great to me Katy! I really love the squares in the top picture, they’re similar to something I have in mind for some hand quilting – I bet you finish before me!!

    Work does have a way of interfering with pleasure. I like your doodles and then the swirls on the pillow. I can spend a lot of time pondering which design. And zippers? I gave up on having them when I needed them and use flap closings instead. claire aka knitnkwilt.wordpress.com

  7. Hello Katy,

    I love the samplers, so much so that am featuring this post at Free Motion Mavericks this week! I think you made the best choice, though. The swirls on the pieced top look just perfect.

    Thank you for linking up!

    Love, Muv
