WARNING: Free Motion Rookie Ahead!

Jul 27, 2010

So I watch the little video clips posted by Leah Day on  365 Days of Free Motion Quilting Filler Designs and it looks so easy.  Every day she creates a new design.  I'm inspired!  I've got to try it!  Oh my.

My test piece.  I want stars for a Thomas the Train quilt for my son. 

WARNING:  Uneven stitch length ahead!



Here's the stars on the actual quilt front.  The busy pattern on the panel perfectly hides the mistakes and is a good place for me to practice.  I'm hoping no one will notice I have no idea what I'm doing.


Quilt back: Since this is a child's quilt, I think I can get away with the random uneven stars.  I think it looks almost primitive or childish.

Well, my neck and back are tense.  Taking a break after about 3 rows of stars.  Can I finish it before his birthday Aug. 6?

  1. It looks great Annemarie!

    Just keep playing with it and try adjusting your chair higher. That might help with the tension in your body.

    The more you stitch, the better your stars will look and by the time you get done, you'll be able to stitch them in your sleep!

    Good luck, I can't wait to see the finished quilt,

  3. I like it! I just started free quilting and wow it takes a lot of patience, doesn't it! The stars look great and I'm sure a little boy would love it too! Nice work. :)
