    Doodle Quilting

    I picked up the book Doodle Quilting by Cheryl Malkowski that had over 120 continuous line machine quilting designs and decided to take a stab at the rose. Don't look too closely at the stitches as my machine is skipping but my little trial didn't turn out too bad. She has some nice designs in her book with easy to follow drawings.

    It looks perfect to me!!! I have said for years that I am going to learn FMQing. Each time I practice I have to put it away for a while and then I have forgetten everything and start all over! I need to make it a priority!

    Looks like you had fun! Love FMQ, and the more you do the easier it gets. I think continuous lines are the way to go, too...the further you can go without cutting the thread the better!
