My first Free Motion Quilt
This is also an Improvisational Quilt - something I'd never heard of until a few months ago. You can learn many of these skills from YouTube videos. I used my Craftsy unlimited subscription to help me.
I used several Craftsy classes or rather parts of them to help me complete this project. Here are all the ones I can remember:
Machine Quilting in Sections
Machine quilting Borders and Backgrounds by Angela Walters for the swirls
Start Up Library - Quilting
Fearless Free Motion
Here is the video sharing the quilt:
I have already purchased at least some of the fabric for 3 more projects with one underway. I'm pleased that this one used a lot of what was in my stash so that makes me feel extra good. So good that I bought all that new fabric. Oh well, it means I must get to sewing.
(Adding these photos of a dress I bought at a consignment store so I can link them elsewhere on a Tag sale thread. Great deal for $30 - fully lined.
Thanks for visiting!
