Free Motion Friday – Kismet Quilt

Happy Friday peeps! It is one of those weeks where all of a sudden I was like “EEP! FMF! I NEED TO GET ON THIS!” So I decided to go with a quilt I had already quilted, so you can see how I went about it 😀

P1040294 P1040290And so, the Kismet quilt :D.


I started by echoing 1/4″ in from these medallion shapes.

2Then echoing 1/2″ in from that, and 1/4″ from that.

3Then I filled in the 1/2″ space with bubbles,


And the rest of the white space with 1/4″ spaced lines.


You can watch a video of me quilting the background on my APQS Lucey HERE.

In the center I did these swirling boxes– you start with this shape, and keep repeating it until you end up with this:


Which was a lot of fun, and looks fabulous.


The, some dot-to-dot in the navy,


And then the background was also filled with 1/4″ spaced lines, looking like they were a continuous line of stitching with the white– however, I had changed thread colours, so they were not continuous.


Then, in a move that should surprise no-one, I added Kathleen’s Magic Shape.

In the busier blocks, I just left it as the bracket shape, and echoed. However, in the plainer blocks, I went ahead and added the feathers.


And that’s it! This one was a lot of fun!

Remember, if you want your quilt to be a part of FMF, email a picture of it to kathleen(at) I can’t wait to see your quilt!

Later days,
