Free Motion Friday - Melissa's Quilt


Happy Friday peeps!!! It's Thanksgiving here this weekend, so I'll be spending my weekend eating Turkey and trying to stay warm.

Today we have Melissa's quilt.


It's soooo pretty don't you think? I love all those woven fabrics. The real answer, (as much as I hate to say it) is that not every quilt needs crazy-person quilting. On a quilt like this, I want simpler quilting so that the fabrics really shine.


So, to keep it simple, I'm going to stitch "X"'s into each o f the colourful squares. This is a simple quilting pattern, but will really add some interesting texture while not taking away from the fabrics.


Then I've simply quilted a wavy line through the black squares.

That's it for me! If you'd like your quilt to be a part of FMF, email a picture of it to

I'm teaching a Stitch & Bobbin in North Vancouver on October 17 & 18, so maybe I'll see you then!

Later days! Kathleen.
