I've now been quilting for three and a half years. This blog is my personal quilting diary, that charts my progress (and occasional regression) from the start. I use it so I can look back at my past projects...and hopefully see my skills improve!

Free Motion Quilting - A Toe in the Water

I am coming to the end of a free-motion quilting course at Kathy's Patch in Folkestone.  I had a couple of attempts at teaching myself before starting the course, but was completely hopeless!  Luckily for me, Kathy and Jo are very patient.  I think free motion quilting is a skill that improves with practice and I have to confess, that I haven't found time to practice between classes, so have only myself to blame if I haven't progressed as much as I should have!

Below are three of my favourite blocks from my classwork.



Next week we will be putting the blocks together using a quilt as you go method.  I am really keen to learn this method, as trying to swing a queen size quilt on my Bernina is not my idea of fun!
