FMQ ... Quilting Practice

Hi Everyone!  Time for another post.  I am practicing my free motion quilting.  Haven't done enough practice so I used some sample 5" squares from Bernartex to make a baby size quilt to practice that FMQ!

What I came up with was "Sunshine and Flowers".  Hope my little phone camera got enough of the detail for you to see the designs.  I used Superior's "So Fine" thread.  I know the stitches aren't even and perfect but that's why it's practice!  I don't have a long arm machine so I have to rely on my Bernina Artista 630 to get the job done.  I know there are many quilters out there using the same domestic machines as me so I know it can be done and done well.  I just hope I get there sooner than later!



Leaves and Vines all Around

And you put it all together and you get  "Sunshine and Flowers"!

See you next time...Happy Quilting!
