Bunny Meadow Quilt

My mom came down to visit a couple weeks ago, and when she comes, we have started making a little sewing project while she's here for a few days.  

This time, my mom wanted to make mug rugs.  So that's what this mini quilt started out as.  Everything just fell into place - and it definitely couldn't be contained in just a mug rug.  It wasn't intended to be an "Easter quilt", but I couldn't resist posting it now.

I have done a couple mini quilts (that I haven't had a chance to post yet!) to practice my free motion quilting.  This is the first.  All that practice I did drawing on paper for the long-arm machine totally paid off on my home machine.  I still need to work on curviness, but hey, I'm just happy about making it through the quilting with no cussing or head banging!  


I don't know why it has taken me so long to feel comfortable FMQing on my home machine.  Something in my brain clicked and now I know exactly how to adjust my machine to get it right.  At least I found it, right?
