Free Motion Friday - Shayna's Quilt
Shayla is a domestic machine quilter, and was quite concerned that I show her something that she could achieve on her domestic machine... to which I say, pretty much everything I do you can do on a domestic, it just takes practice! Check out Linda from Flourishing Palms (who I met at QuiltCon!) who is a crazy ridiculous domestic machine quilter. Particularly the quilts in THIS POST.
So lets go!
I started with an X in each square. You could stop with this "X" or you could easily go in and fill in the X... some dot- to -tot, some echoing, maybe some different fills... the real answer is I planned to do some dot-to-dot, but forgot to actually draw it :D Ooops.
Then, in each of the grey squares, a different quilting design in each. Some ribbon candy, some loops, some circles, some swirls...whatever you like. If you're using designs that have trouble going around corners, these grey squares actually have pieced corner stones-- meaning you could easily make the main design go to the corner stone, then a different design in the corner stone.
Then, some spiral lines in the outer squares. On a domestic machine, you could easily put on your walking foot for perfectly even lines, but I'm way to lazy for that, so I'd do them free motion, and if they aren't perfect, say I totally meant for that to happen. They're organic lines. :D
So that's this week! Remember, if you want your quilt to be a part of FMF, send an email with a picture of your quilt top to Kathleen(at)kathleenquilts.com.
Later days! Kathleen.
