I decided to take a week practicing some random free motion quilting that I'm comfortable with, thinking that once I have the baby quilt I'm working on sandwiched and ready for quilting that I'll know exactly what I want to quilt and where. Now more than before I am at a loss, I just cant decide. Hopefully once I have it tucked underneath my machine I'll know exactly what I want to do..
At least the practicing turned, what would have been just another sample ending up in my drawer, into something pretty. During the week I showed you how this little Dresden Plate was 'born' out of some scraps my Mom gave me from a quilt she made a few years ago. The finished Dresden Plate sampler measures 20 x 17 inches.
It is filled with lost of different fmq, I even tried to be creative with one of the feathers. Admittedly I enjoy quilting feathers but I guess I should stick to what I know instead of trying to be fancy. It came out fine I guess, but I prefer it being simple and curvy and not so dramatic.
I did have fun making this, my oldest Son even suggested I make another to hang beside it, we'll see, for now I have to get busy binding the baby quilt and seriously start planning out what I want to quilt. Any suggestions?
