Free Motion Fun

One of my favorite blogs is 365 Days of Free Motion Quilting Filler Designs by Leah Day.  She offers tutorials of free motion quilting and lots of tips for successful quilting on her site.  If you scroll down the sidebar of her blog, you can find the designs grouped by difficulty level.

This weekend I have been having loads of fun trying out some of her more simple designs on a Christmas stocking project I'm working on.  Here are some of the results.

Because of the busyness of the fabric, much of the quilting doesn't show up as well as it would on a more solid fabric.  But at this point in my free motion skills, that is okay.  I like the way they turned out.  And it made quilting a lot of stockings more fun, even though it took longer than it would have with simple stippling.

Happy Sewing ♥
