I've always wanted to do quilt art, but never had the courage! I found Leah Day's blog www.freemotionquilting.blogspot.com, a few weeks ago and decided to take the plunge. If you have not heard of her I highly suggest you check her out! She has so many great tips and FMQ patterns!
I have learned so much already just by starting this quilt! I now know how to trace, FMQ, stipple, thread paint, echo, and so much more and I'm not even done!
The pattern I printed out from Leah's website
My first try at thread painting... lol.
My second try at threat painting. You can see in the words "I am" I wayyy over stitched them and did it as if I were coloring in a book, with the word "enough" I stitched just as Leah does in her videos.
All traced up and ready to go! (with a few minor imperfections I'm not worried about!)
I am enough. Finished with the outline and some thread painting! As you can see from my previous thread painting practice, I've gotten MUCH better. I must say, I am proud of myself.
