Free motion quilting project Week #3

I had a little more to time to move on to week #3 on Leah Day free motion quilting weekly lessons. I had a some trouble with the fabric, which was bought at a thrift store as a table cloth for just this particular practice. I knew there were seams in it, but didn't think it would be too big of a problem. Well, now I know it was. My machine was not going to go over those seams, my thread started to break and it took me a while to figure it out, but thank goodness I did. For that reason I had to square up my piece before I took the pictures and since nothing was marked the rows are not exactly straight. Oh well! :) I'll survive...
So here are the pictures for Your enjoyment:

The whole piece

And the close-ups:


  1. You are doing GREAT!! I just started fmq a few weeks ago too. My family and friends ask how I do it, I just tell them to be brave and GO FOR IT!! ;)

    1. Thanks a lot for the encouragement! Now I know it's true that all it takes is practice. ;)
