On the Frame: Charity Quilt

I am keeping up with my commitment of working on a charity quilt each week.  Here’s the latest one from the frame.  I believe this one is from Marge.

I am trying out a new to me free motion motif.  This one is from Step-by-Step Free-Motion Quilting: Turn 9 Simple Shapes into 80+ Distinctive Designs Best-selling author of First Steps to Free-Motion Quilting is what I am trying out.  If you don’t have this book and want to free motion, I HIGHLY suggest getting it.  The book is my favorite and most used.

I also HIGHLY recommend a dry erase board to practice on.  It’s a great easy thing to ask for as a Christmas present.  (that’s how I got mine)

I’m making my hooks a little bigger but I’m okay with that.  I am doing an echo and travel a little more than she did too.  That’s okay as long as I stay consistent.

This is a lap quilt so hopefully it will be off and finished up soon.  I sure do love working on the charity quilts…it one of those things that does my heart good.

    I have the Craftsy class Free Motion Quilting Essential by the author, Christina Cameli. She’s very good. BTW, a Happy Birthday, Jo!
