Free motion quilting...

My first completed free motion quilting project! I've been practicing a lot, both with a wipe-off pen on plastic and with my sewing machine on fabric "sandwiches".

Finally I decided to attempt a baby blanket. It's simple, just fabric, not pieced. It's flannel on the other side, with another layer of flannel for batting in the middle. There's a fabric book that goes
with this fabric, Animals Around the World. It shows animals from different continents. Educational, and cute too! My grandson will love it!!
It is just simple stippling. That's as brave as I am at the moment.

About Me

My photo
just a crafty grandma experimenting with all sorts of things. My main interests are paper craft of any kind and quilting/sewing. But I've done leatherwork, polymer clay, on-the-wheel pottery, painted molded ceramics, papier mache, stained glass, plaster casting, linoleum printing, paper making... you name it, I've probably tried it. A few I actually stuck with. :)
