Quilted, Bound and Ready

Quilted  this was a "pulling out hair FMQ" as I was trying to FMQ around those squares and it was HARD.  They're better than my last attempt - what with all the ones I've done - but it isn't a cake walk yet.  I can go up or down okay, but turning corners or going right to left or left to right still causes me headaches.  I'll stall in the corners and get a build up in thread in the back which I don't like.  I guess I'll just have to keep practices - I know that helps because after doing 36 of them I could see I was better at it.

Bound

This is the more true color of the back.

  1. Very nice quilt! I'm impressed with all of you who do free motion quilting. I'm still stuck at walking foot stuff.
    Cheers,

  3. The only thing to do with FMQ is to keep practicing. In time it does get better. Wish though that mine would jump to the next level and look great! So I can relate to your trials. For this though I think I would have done straight line quilting and not used FMQ. I'm curious...was it faster to do FMQ? I'm thinking it probably was, and therefore worth the extra effort. Congrats on a great finish, and in time for Christmas too! You get two gold stars. Thanks for linking up to Wednesday Wait Loss.
