A quilt top, no matter how intricate, doesn’t have a ton of texture. It’s just…flat. That’s where FMQ comes into play. Because with a little planning, your stitch patterns can force the batting to puff – or crush – exactly where you want it. Last week I pieced together a Mariner’s Compass, and this week I’m finishing it off with an action-packed session of free motion quilting. Click HERE to learn how to give your compass quilt tons of 3-dimensional character with a few basic FMQ motifs.
Rob demonstrates a square and arc stitch motif for FMQ on a home sewing machine. This design is perfect for a modern quilt pattern or even to bring more life to a solid choice in fabric! He uses Machingers Quilting Gloves and a Sew Slip Multi Purpose Sheet as he quilts. Click HERE to get supplies
Have you ever watched a high energy caffeinated guy sit and focus closely on an important task? Well, it’s a sight to be seen, so break out your quilting gloves and slip sheet, folks, cuz it’s free motion quilting time! This week the focus is vines and leaves and it’s going to be a blast! Thanks to my friend Christina Cameli for allowing me to reference her excellent teaching materials from her Free-Motion Quilting books! You can find them in the list of supplies HERE!
