This month's Free Motion Quilting challenge tutorial was presented by quilting expert, Ann Fahl. Ann provided excellent advice and insight about how to improve your quilt stitching skills.
Check out SewCalGal web page for more information and inspiration.
As Ann suggested, I gathered my quilt stitching designs and doodles into a notebook. I also practiced sketching and doodling the four designs she provided before I tried stitching them out on my practice sandwich.
I used King Tut variegated thread with a 80/12 top stitching needle by Superior Thread.
After the loops, stars, swirls and flowers I ventured into making some baptist fans and then some feathers.
All in all I enjoyed this month's challenge and am pleased to see improvements in my skills. I'm also more confident in making the necessary tension adjustments to my machine as they are needed.
