I finally got around to reading Leah Day's Free Motion Quilting Project blog. Leah challenged herself to create one FMQ pattern PER DAY - so 365 quilt designs! She was a beginner as well without any fancy equipment and since there are so many threads on FMQ and much despair from the newbies, I thought I would share the link and an idea.
The 10 minute block pattern has also been discussed a lot and whats cool about it is that if you do that center square in a plain light color, it makes a very nice little showcase for an FMQ design.
So here is the idea - make a 10 minute block quilt, any size.
Take a look at Leah's blog and see what she did for FMQ or search the forum for ideas.
Create FMQ designs in each of the centers of the 10 minute block quilt. They can all be the same or they can be different.
Post pictures of your finished work!
My thought is that these FMQ designs are small enough and easy enough to do even for newbies and the 10 minute block pattern would showcase the work very nicely.
See what you think!
