Following my initial attempts at free motion quilting, I bravely took the step of trying it out for real on my patchwork cushion front.
Using a coordinating thread in a deep red colour I decided to include the word ‘home’ in my quilting, surrounded by a flower (ish) design.
I really enjoyed the challenge of free motion quilting and soon got into the rhythm of creating the curly flowers. I switched foot part way through as the open toe one I’d started with seemed to catch the fabric where the pieces were joined. Finishing with a transparent closed toe foot gave me no problems at all and I’m really pleased with the finished cushion.
