2012 Free Motion Quilting Challenge March Update

I am trying to keep up with the 2012 Free Motion Quilting Challenge over at Insights from SewCalGalI really enjoyed Ann Fahl's tutorial on FMQ. She is not only an expert on FMQ, but also teaches quilting and has written a number of books and other publications. Her work is awesome. Her tutorial was very informative - she discussed basics as well as giving tips. She encouraged us to develop our own style - something I am working on.

Many of you know that March has been a blur due to health problems with family members. As a result, I have quilted very little. I made these pillows and quilted them with stippling loops. It is a style that I really like. I have some ideas for future practice - I have been sketching - now I just need machine time!

I think you can see the quilting here.

I pieced the pillow tops at our retreat on Saturday. I had my Featherweight so I didn't do any FMQ that day.

Each pillow is made out of scraps.


  1. Your pillows are very cool. I can see a young boy being delighted with them. The stippling loops are very good. Bravo...well done.

  2. Great job on that quilting design! I can't wait to try it!

  3. They turned out nice grandma :)
