This year I have been teaching some FMQ classes in a local quilt shop. I have created many drawings and samplers for my students to look at. The first round of classes was a beginners workshop where we worked on loops, curls, echoes, flames/ferns, various fillers like pebbles and some vines. As you can imagine I have had FMQ on my mind a lot. 🙂
I took up the challenge to see if you could use the simple shapes in a bit more complex form; quilting in the round. Here are my designs. Please enjoy.
Stitched on a Janome 7700, with Topstitch 90/14 Schmetz needle. I always use the Supreme Slider and Machinger gloves when quilting. I have had them for over three years and I consider them a very wise investment.
Thread: Auripoly embroidery thread in bobbin and spool. Spool on separate spool stand next to the machine.
Fabric: unbleached cotton from IKEA, batting 100% cotton by Moda.
Have a lovely day!
