Week Three: FMQ Practice Samplers!

Hello! Here is the latest update of my free motion quilting progress.  I practised a different FMQ stitch each day last week and here is how it went. Each of the stitches I practised came from the Craftsy class, 'Start Free Motion Quilting' taught by Elizabeth Dackson. Elizabeth also has a lovely blog where she shares advice on her free motion quilting techniques called 'Don't Call Me Betsy'.

Monday: Stippling and Loopy Stippling:




Tuesday: Loopy Flowers:



Wednesday: Woodgrain:



Thursday: Circuit Board:



Friday: Linear L:



Saturday: Wishbone:



Sunday: day of rest!!

I am really pleased with how things are going.  Of course, the stitching isn't perfect and a LOT more practice is needed but, I can see and feel improvements. So far, I feel that I am keeping on top of things and, that with some more practice, at long last I may even be able to achieve my goal of being able to FMQ to a reasonable standard. I just have to keep practising!!
