    Fabulous machine quilting pics on pinterest

    I was seeking some ideas for how to quilt a French Braid and somehow I landed here:

    http://pinterest.com/caroldb/awesome-machine-quilting/

    I don't think I will ever look at machine quilting the same way again!

    Of course, it's way out of my range and I will plod through some SID and make FMQ curlicues - LOL! But it's good to get some perspective on where I am in the quilting continuum.

    Wow, there is some awesome quilting on that link! I love that rainbow french braid and the quilting done on that. It is gorgeous! I did one with a swirly pattern. I took some paper, marked the length of the braid section, and drew a wavy line with my wavy ruler, then I drew curliques off of that. I pinned it to the quilt and roughly followed the pattern. It came out great and was a good design for the french braid. I was pretty proud for a "beginner" in the FMQ category.

    I am in awe at those! My perspective on my quilting leaves me lacking.....big time.! But I sure do love looking at what others are capable of doing.

    I looked at the first few on your link and saw a couple done by ladies on this board. I'll never be able to quilt like any of those! Gorgeous!

    They are gorgeous but kind of depressing. I thought I was doing alright on my domestic sewing machine but I will never reach their level.
