Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Mary, what I did on this quilt was I looked up different shapes on google image...for free coloring book pages..I then used a fabric water erasable marker and traced around the images..then I did a machine quilt around them..what is odd about this time is I did NOT use my fmq foot...I actually used applique foot...since my go to machine was broken, and I haven't had time to try out my new one, I "winged" it...I don't have a long arm...I only quilt with my domestic machine...or hand quilt...
If you have any other questions, feel free to ask away...tho I am certainly not one to know much about "real" fmq with the fmq foot...lol..
