Adorable...love your pillows. I do not know how to do free motion quilting and even doing something this size is beyond my current imagination...so I am impressed!
Isabella is so lucky to receive this darling pillow.! I too am terrified to try FMQ, I can't even say it out loud, so hats off to you. You are smart to try it on a smaller project. You'll be getting to queen size in no time. Like Audrey Hepburn said, "There's no impossible only I'm possible".
True, Carol - thank you! Terry, very nice words - thank you!
I quilt nearly all of mine on my Bernina 440. You just have to get a feel for it. That said, I think your FMQ looks great. I make practice sandwiches with random bits of batting I sew together to make Franken-batting. Now I do a few swirls on a sandwich to test my tension and brainstorm designs BEFORE putting a needle to my precious tops! Also this website is an invaluable resource http://www.daystyledesigns.com/365abc.htm
Keep up the good work :)
I love all the details on this! Your FMQ looks good - the loopy design is nice.
Goldwillow, thanks for the advice. I will check out the link. I find myself repeating a mantra in my head while FMQ, a mantra which tells me over and over which way to move next. I think I'll do better when I stop being so nervous about it! Rebecca, thank you! The loopy design idea is something I first spotted in Elizabeth Hartman's A Practical Guide to Patchwork.
