I ran into a friend I hadn't seen in 13 years on Friday. She reminded me of something I had said about myself and my friend. I said, 'I think so out of the box that I don't see the box and my husband is so in the box that the walls are the only thing that he sees'.
There is nothing wrong with either scenario. We balance each other out.
Free motion quilting can be like this for people. It can seem random and haphazard or regulated a stifling, depending on how you look at it. I decided to draw myself some boxes and see how I do.
At first start simple.
Think about the purpose of the quilt? Will it be dawning every picnic you have with your kids or on your bed or in the next quilt show? The purpose of the quilt will help determine the amount of time that you spend on quilting it.
As you build your repertoire of stitches, build your designs. I enjoyed mixing the designs to create more detailed designs.
Now to turn to your quilt top and make it your very own.
