As you can see it is not perfect, but I am getting there. I must admit though that there is no free motion about it. I put my machine on a serpentine stitch and turn my fabric this way and that to to accomplish it. I still am working perfecting free motion quilting, but at least I am getting somewhere.
Its a work in progress so I am linking up with
That's exactly right you have to practice in order to perfect your work. I never really mastered quilting on the sewing machine, I bought a longarm and that was the ticket for me. So keep on going!!ReplyDelete
always love seeing what you are working on!ReplyDelete
I have quilted my own work on my home machine since the beginning and I still struggle. With every piece there is improvement though. I was just looking at my 2nd quilt (my couch cuddle one) and was noticing all of the knots and uneven stitches. I have a long way to go, but I can only get there by practicing!ReplyDelete
Great way to use leftover blocks too!
My FMQ always starts out very "herky-jerky" and as I continue quilting, it gets smoother and more even. The runner is so very pretty! Be sure to use a permanent fine point marker to sign and date the back of your work. In five or ten years you'll be so glad that you did.ReplyDelete
Really pretty and very warm colors :) Your quilting looks good!ReplyDelete
Very pretty stars. FMQ takes practice practice practice. This table runner is a good way to practice.ReplyDelete
Check out Lori Kennedy at theinboxjaunt.com. I didn't see her in your favorite blog list. She is fantastic, has great advice on free motion quilting (although she doesn't like meandering), and she has lots of free tutorials.ReplyDelete
FMQ takes patience and lots of practice, but all of a sudden, you reach a point where it all clicks and it becomes much easier. Keep working on it.
