Dialing up the FMQ

Finishing up a whole-cloth stencil quilt, I've decided to push myself on free-motion quilting.

The stencil is a ginkgo twig, very similar to the design on the back of my marquee quilt. The back fabric  is a Michael Miller green and yellow print.

If ginkgo leaves grew on vines (which they don't), they'd look exactly like this. I swear.

The top fabric is an Indian woodblock print. I'm binding the quilt now -- more photos when it comes out of the dryer. 


  1. Excellent way to practice. I may borrow this idea.

  2. you absolutely have to do a craftsy class for those of us who cannot make it to your iin person classes. this is amazing stuff... you've inspired me to try my own... but I could sure use some help!
