A cute little quilt made by following Lori Kennedy's Quilt-a-long in April/May 2016. It was a lot of fun! It was difficult to photograph the quilt at the right angle to get the quilting to show, so I apologise if they are not brilliant!
Another new FMQ Sampler block:
Finished Flying Geese Mini Quilt:
Two new FMQ Sampler blocks:
A mini table topper pieced together to practice some more FMQ!
Another new FMQ Sampler block:
My final FMQ Sampler block:
There has been a bit of a gap in my FMQ practice as I didn't have the time over the Summer months when we moved house. However, I need to quilt a quilt I am making for a friend, so the practice has started again. Here are some first attempts after the gap.... I quilted a faithful old table runner which decorates my kitchen table in the Autumn months..... before it was only quilted with straight lines......
More practising by joining in with Lori Kennedy's Sunflower Quilt-a-Long:
And yet more practising, this time using a pieced sample as the quilt I am making has a patchwork centre similar to this....
and 'swirls' have been requested. I also practised stitching a butterfly from an online Craftsy class by Debby Brown I have been following.
A completed mini quilt which is part of a challenge set by Lori Kennedy as part of one of her Craftsy classes which I am following. This was a framed composition.
Three more mini quilts for the challenge set by Lori Kennedy at the end of her first Craftsy class. The first is a grid composition.
The second a diagonal composition.
Lastly, the third is a medallion composition.
I have finally added the binding and finished my QAYG Quilt. This is made up of twelve blocks of different free motion quilting designs which helped me to practise my quilting. The design for the quilt is based one of Christina Cameli's designs from her book 'First Steps to Free Motion Quilting'.
The last few weeks Lori Kennedy has been hosting a Sunflower Quilt-a-long which I have been following. I have completed two Sunflower Quilts.
