It’s time to take the free motion quilting plunge! So I grabbed some stash and made myself a table topper to practice on. First I stitched in the ditch all the straight lines. In the centre block I outlined the centres and the petals of the flowers. You can see I couldn’t wait to try a bit of stippling in some hearts.
That’s my progress so far – this is going to be fun!
Finished this topper to grace my Mother’s table. The original pattern is from the book On the Run by Heather Mulder Peterson. I used the basic pattern shape but have adapted it to use fabrics from my stash.
Had a lovely surprise package in the mail this week. I won this from the Prairie Flower Farm blog. Enough sweet recipes to keep me exercising, some recipe cards and an adorable fabric covered notebook. Thanks very very much, dear Linda.
Well, if I’m going to get any practice done today I better get back to my machine. Thanks so much for stopping by,
