You also get to know your sewing machine a whole lot better. Join in on my Spring Cleaning Contest that I have going on until the end of the month. Show me your goo!
For FMQ ideas and inspiration, I keep tabs at the Free Motion Quilting Project and check out the videos regularly. It's fun to share and see the progress with other quilters.
Here are some things I have experimented with on my FMQ practice panel. I thought it would be fun to morph from one design to another. I didn't stress over it or plan it out first, just picked different designs as I went along.
Here's a trapped flower design.
Then moved into the revealed flower.
I moved into leaves, hearts, and finally a chicken wire looking design.
The back of the piece - it is easier to see it all set around Leah's giant flower design!
I find this interesting to look at. The movement is fun! With better planning, the morphing can be made more subtle from one design to the next. This was a fun experiment. Thanks for looking at it!
I really hope you enter my contest! It's never too soon to do some cleaning! Your machine will appreciate it and reward you for it.
