February Free Motion Challenge

This month for the Free Motion Quilting Challenge over at SewCalGal, we learned how to do free motion feathers, the easy way. Diane Gaudynski was our instructor, and I think her tutorial is being taken down when February is over, so if you want some good tutoring from one of free motion's finest, now would be a good time to click on over there, and see for yourself!

Here are some of my first sketches:

And here's what I came up with:
This one is quite hard to make out. Sorry.

I really, really enjoy doing these. I realize I have a long way to go, but I find these so freeing! Just go with the movement!

 I also utilized this motif on one small part of the item I am making for the sliced moda bake shop contest. Here's a sneak peek!

I know I don't stand a chance with my primitive sewing skills but it was fun to design something I needed anyway! (more on that later when it's finished!)


  1. Looks great. I had fun doing the feathers.

  2. The most important thing is to try something new, and to have fun....and you did both of these things!


Always love to hear what you have to say. Thanks for taking time!
