It's A Start!

The free motion stitch of the day on 365 Days of Free Motion Quilting yesterday was "Cat Hairball" and after I read Leah's post I convinced myself that even I would be able to do that one! I layered a few scraps with some batting and sat down at the machine. After just a couple of minutes I was quilting right along with no trouble at all! If you notice in Leah's post, she implies that even a 2 year-old can free motion quilt this pattern, so I'm not claiming to have acomplished much, but at least it's a start!

You're doing terrific Susan! I love that thread and fabric combo.

Just try speeding up just a big, but keep your hand movement the same so that your stitches get a little smaller.

I'm sure you'll get it in no time!

The thread colors really make this quilting stitch work. Great job!

Krista said...

Well Susan, that looks good to me but from my experience with free motion quilting I would say that would have to be a talented 2 year old. I think it is difficult to get the rhythm down.

Well done Susan it is looking so pretty with all those colours.

Practice, practice, practice is what Mickey and I learned at Quilt Odyssey this summer...Mickey had it down pat...ME not so much! I was too tense, and remembering the class the speed of the machine and the movement of your hands makes a huge difference! "By golly I think you have it"...keep on going! YOU CAN DO IT!

This is great. I am going to try some of these when my life slows down a bit.

Thanks for mentioning Leah's great blog. I'm telling all my free motion quilting friends. I can't believe she's so young and has time for such detailed, informative posts.
Great colors on your work!
