So after my owl yesterday which can be seen HERE I thought I would have another go. I am no good at drawing, so designing anything filled me with fear. I decided to have a look for an easy pattern to follow on the internet. I found this children's colouring page HERE. It was easy to cut out and a good design for me to continuing practicing.
This is my first ever go at free motion machine embroidery. This is a very new concept for me, I have only just realised that this is even possible. I bought a free motion foot for my machine and did a bit of research in to it. I made my first ever free motion machine quilt the other day. It can be seen HERE
I really enjoyed doing this and fancied having another go with the foot so I came up with this. I have a way to go, the only way I can describe it is like drawing but moving the paper instead of the pencil.
So I have been rather busy! Over the half term I wanted to have a go at something I had never tried before so I opted for quilting. I have to say I have found it throughly enjoyable. I have only made two small cot sized quilts at the moment. The thought of anything larger seems a little to daunting at this point. I opted for a jelly roll, and I have managed to make two small quilts out of one roll. The one I am sharing today was the simpler of the two to make. The quilting was the harder of the two.
