I’m between actual projects at the moment and awaiting inspiration for my next one. However, I decided to take advantage of the down time to practice my free-motion quilting a bit. It’s rather nice to do this, not only to try to improve, but also because there’s no stress involved, since it’s “only” practice! 🙂
My first session was to refresh my filler skills with some McTavishing, which I haven’t done in a very long time and really like. I used a sample sandwich and some fine thread to minimize the thread build-up that is a necessary part of this motif.
The second session (different day!) was to make a triangular spiral effect, using my Bernina ruler foot and a ruler. I started with a triangle that was a bit too large for the ruler, meaning that I had to fudge a bit to estimate where I was going, but — again — it was only practice, so no problem. I may do this sort of thing again, this time using a square or a pentagon or another shape to start.
