Ever since I got into this whole modern quilting thing, I've loved the look of free motion quilting. I'm not much of a doodler though so it's a little tougher for me to come up with designs or motifs I like. Thank goodness for the internet with so many amazing sources of inspiration! A few of my faves are Christina Cameli, who I took a mini class from when I fist started FMQ last summer, Lori Kennedy, who has step by step tutorials on SO SO MANY amazing FMQ tutorials on her blog, and of course Angela Walters, whom I am very excited to take some classes with at QuiltCon!
This week I'm working on finishing up the mermaid quilt. A massive pain in my neck came out of nowhere and kept me from finishing on time but I'll be done with it soon enough! I pebbled around each of the girls to make sure they had enough air to breathe and then I started searching for some water / wave inspiration. I found several I liked but this was the winner. I'm about a third done with the quilting now. Thank goodness for my Juki with all that throat space!
I've started a Pinterest board for FMQ ideas if you're looking for some inspiration too. Happy Friday!
