Free Motion Quilting Project Update

This update is on the Heart and Feathers Wholecloth Quilt. Leah Day of The Free Motion Quilting Project is an excellent teacher. I love her written instructions and her videos.

This week we did all of the outline quilting in free motion. So I was stitching on a line and travel stitching on a line. I did pretty good with a few little mistakes which I hope won't show much. Actually, no part was difficult. It really helped to break the quilting into sections. I greatly appreciated Leah's hints about practicing each motif before actually stitching and also the variety of ways she showed us to do the feathers. 

I still have more erasing to do - can you see some of my lead marks? Well, I know you can see my shadow - I really shouldn't take photos at night with an overhead light!

The back looks about the same as the front.

I am definitely getting better at outline quilting. I really like the quilt just as it is! But I'm in this to learn so I will go on to the next part! 


  1. Very nice! Yor feathers are pretty.

  2. Everyone is doing great....will be in catch-up mode soon. You certainly are catching on to this exercise quickly! Good for you!!! On to my project! Hugs, Doreen
