To-Do Tuesday 4-14-15 | Free-Motion Quilting

Yikes… My To-Do Tuesday post is late!  Glad I remembered, even if it is the last minute!

This week I’ve been busy getting to know my new machine.  There have been a few glitches along the way, but they are minor and I’ll talk more about them when I write the post about the new machine.  Hopefully this week.

FMQ Practice 1

In the meantime, I’ve been practicing my Free Motion Quilting skills. I have a long way to go, but I can already see an improvement simply based on having more room to push and shove the quilt around.  I am loving this Juki TL2200 QVP-S!!!

  1. Super awesome! I am so very excited for you and your new Juki. I really like your paisley pattern; I haven’t spent any time trying to draw or quilt them before, but they look fun. 🙂


    1. I have been having more fun than is legal, I think. Hahaha! That paisley pattern was something I could not do well at all before. I thought I’d try it on this machine before giving up completely on it. I was blown away that all I really needed was a little more room to get the technique down. Now to practice, practice, practice!!


  2. I’m impressed! Looks like you are loving that Juki and all the potential FMQ you will be doing in your future! And gee, you sure are practicing on some pretty fabric!


    1. I have been having way too much fun, Sharon! I had to stay away from it for a few days since I was at work… but now it’s time to start playing again! Although I have an actual quilt top to finish this weekend so I can get to quilting it too!
