First, I made a video that was 5 minutes in length and wasn't too bad as home videos go of moi free motion quilting my hexagon tablerunner. Sadly we can not upload it, several attempts were made, ethernet cable was purchased and plugged into the box etc. and still no upload to YouTube. I am so frustrated at this point, so we are going to have to settle for photos until we figure out what the problem is. One of my sons insists we need a better computer, a really expensive super computer!!! Yeah right....
How do I do this without a wobble (well their are a few wobbles here and there), PRACTICE!!! I have spent a great deal of time doodling and drawing shapes and then creating suitable shapes that would be fairly easy to create with thread. Everyone can do it, you just need to practice and practice some more.
Here is another colour option, Helen sent this photo to me and she used Butterscotch and Roses by Fig Tree Quilts. Notice that Helen used two colours for her flowers, and her free motion quilting is brilliant. Free motion quilting is all about practice, practice and more practice. This particular project is perfect for experimenting with quilting. Notice in Helen's piece how she quilted a flower/star shape in the inner hexagon. It is very effective and can be done without drawing the shape onto the fabric. Just Practice!!!
