Adding FMQ to an older, finished quilt....

This week I decided to have a change round of the quilts that I have hanging in my house.

As I was moving quilts around I noticed that the one pictured above had a few creases which I didn't like the look of.

It is a quilt designed by Gail Pan and which appeared in Homespun Magazine in 2015. When I finished the quilt in 2015 I hadn't the same experience with free motion quilting that I do today, so I had only very simply quilted the finished project as you can see from the photos below.

I decided that I may be able to 'fix' the creases by adding more quilting and set about free motion quilting the central section of the quilt with pebbles.

It worked and the creases are there no longer as you can see from the photos above.  Of course, now that I have started adding more quilting I haven't been able to stop, so watch this space for photos of the finished re-vamped quilt!!

Until next time..... 😊 xx


  1. Lol, a quilting addiction! Hehehe. I knew it was a Gail Pan quilt as soon as I saw it. I have made a lot of her things and she is such a lovely person. Your new vamping is lovely.

  2. The additional quilting looks perfect! I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with the rest of the quilt. Happy stitching & Happy Christmas!

  3. I remember when you were first making this one (proves I've been reading your blog for longer than I thought!). Nice that you can re-visit it and add some new skills to it.


Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving me a comment. It is lovely to hear from you and very exciting to read what you have to say!!
