    I've been playing around with some curved crosshatching from Karen McTavish's new "Custom Curves" book. I marked the crosshatching with a blue water soluble marker so I could get the spacing right. I did this on my domestic machine, a Juki TL98. First I did a section of the crosshatching with the walking foot, and then the other 3 sections freemotion with the hopping foot. On a small piece like this, about 16" square, the walking foot is nice, but with a larger quilt, it would definitely be easier doing FMQ so the whole piece wouldn't have to be turned for each row.

    I'm considering trying a small wholecloth...what do you all think?

    Here's a closer view of the crosshatching. The piece has been washed and dried after quilting to give it that "puckered" look.

    This piece is about 16" square and done on my domestic machine. I used muslin and Warm and Natural cotton batting.

    I think you did a great job. I'm just beginning FMQ and hope I can do this type of quilting one day. It will take me a very long time to match yours.

    Just keep at it and you'll get there, Bonnie! I've only been doing this for a couple of years, in my spare time. When I first started out, I felt like a Kindergardener trying to write with a crayon, only worse! I really feel like I've gotten a lot of help in the learning process from lots of books and videos, but my particular favorites have been Sharon Schamber's and Karen McTavish's.

    That is beautiful and you did it without the rulers. I am waiting for my templates to come and I am going to use them on my Big Brother.
