Leah also has videos on everyone of the 365 designs on her website daystyledesigns.com. You could create a volume with the videos and the book and have everything you could ever need for FMQ!

It's Quilting! You're supposed to be having fun!

Barbara,

 

I am looking forward to the Christmas ideas as I am finally getting around to the first project from the scrappy group and it's going to be a Christmas quilt. I have not been posting much but will post my first free motion quilting (not practice) this weekend. It's lap size, I used the walking foot to stabilized and then used free motions to highlight the borders and inside panel. I made some mistakes, but I feel I have overcome a big hurdle by taking on this challenge. Thanks for all you do for the group.

I look so foward to seeing it, and I do agree just doing it for the first time is half the battle.  I'm so very proud of you. WTG girl ..Barbara

Here is a quilt my granddaughter pieced and I quilted. There are some mistakes, but it does not take much to make a 10 year old happy and she is thrilled with her quilted. I tried to shadow the seams and was not happy as my lines are not that straight, so next time I'll stitch in the ditch to stablize. I used free motion to do the outside border and panel. I just did the leaves where veins would be. One time I had tension trouble, which I still need to take out and redo. Overall I am okay with my progress. Thanks to the group and especially Barbara.

DD, you did a good job quilting, your stitches look nice and even.  You should be very pleased with yourself.

I second that thank you to the group and especially to Barbara, who has been so dedicated to this mission of encouraging us to just jump in and try FMQing.

Okay I have been slack getting on here. About all I have done is popped on and seen if the new MQ is posted yet. But I have been working on projects and think that Christmas is getting here way to soon. But I will post the FM that I did on my MQ6. I really enjoyed doing the dragon flies. I would have done them in another color but I had picked out the thread before I saw the dragonfly templete and didnt even think about the color until I got home with the yellow. I think a varigated thread would have been nice

Thanks everyone. It just dawned on me I shouldnt have took pic of what I did with the center of the quilt (DH in bed now probably wouldnt appriciate it). I want to thank Barbara for all her help with FM marking. I was so lost on that. I love those pens but I wish there was a white. I couldnt really put the dragonflies on the dark brown. I just couldnt see it. I could go over a little bit with the tail or wing but that was it.  Well I am off to bed. The quilt I am working on for my son's b day, well somehow one of borders ended up upside down. So, I have decided it is bedtime, I will get the seam ripper out tomorrow.

Tami, sometimes I can get the green one to pick up but you need to let it set for a few minutes , but on the dark I just use some of the pounce  chalk. unless you use the blue water soulable  pen ,thath is the best advice I can give you. the dark fabric is hard to mark.  I stilllove your dragonfiles they are awesome.

Thanks Barbara, I used the green and the pink both, and if I was lucky I might see it. So like I said I just avoided getting the dragonflies in the dark brown when ever I could.. This one that I am working on for my son's b day is almost done. ready to start making the sandwich. I am going to use dark blue thread on the back, and grey on the front. Cross my fingers that there is no tension issues!. I would like to find some snowflakes to put on it. Almost thought about making some of my own, like we use to do in school. But I am not  to sure if it would work.  Would I make a templete on something harder afterwards or could I use like freezer paper?. Oh and I still have to figured out the binding so I think I might get it done by his B day after all!
