Oh dear I've been so busy with my other quilting projects that I didn't get a chance to share some pictures of the rest of the course with Philippa Naylor that I went on in May! Once our curved pieced blocks were completed we watched Philippa demonstrate the skill of free motion quilting. Again we were given advice about needles and thread and how to control the fabric (apparently it's all in the wrist action and being barefoot!).....
.....we made several samples of quilting designs, and tried small blocks of wavy lines, feathers and stippling and curves and wiggles. As you can see, I still need to practise, practise and practise a bit more before I try to quilt my block. I may well have quite a pile of samples by then!
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
