Machine quilting practice 6


Not too long ago I found out about a challenge sponsored by Teri Lucas on her Facebook page. It’s a slow challenge, with the steps — two so far — coming every few weeks. The challenge is intended to give the participants some practice in free-motion quilting, and so far it’s been fun. The first step was to select fabric (I chose one I’m not wild about so as not to “waste” one of my favorites), trace the pattern Teri gave us onto the fabric, and create the quilt sandwich. The second step was to quilt the “whirling” lines and then to fill in those channels with quilted flying geese, using the horizontal lines as the base of the geese. I used my Bernina ruler foot and one of my rulers for most of the geese. It will be interesting to see what the next step will be!


About Sandy

I’m a retired high school French teacher from Arizona, now living in the Las Vegas area. I loved teaching French, but I love retirement even more! I’m a quilter, and most of what you see here will be about quilting, though I’ve also taken up knitting, and I love to bake. Please leave me a comment if you want to contact me — I’ll get back to you as soon as possible. :)
