    This is the second quilt I've tried free motion quilting. I've done a few other things, but this is the second time I've tried a project this size. I found this design in a You Tube video by Nicole Webb. She calls her design Bottoms Up Hearts. Here's the link to the video:

    Mine isn't as smooth as hers. She's using a long-arm machine, and I'm using my domestic sewing machine. Still, I'm pretty happy with what I've done so far. I'm about a quarter of the way done. I'm using a pink variegated thread on top and a lavender thread in the bobbin.

    You are doing a great job & you give me hope! I do not have a long arm & have been quilting on my DSM too. I have done some things that look pretty decent & am coming along. It's nice to see others doing it too!

    You are doing darn good for just your second time. I have not mastered FMQ at all. And I have been making quilt tops for years. Needless to say my stack is growing of quilts that need to be quilted. Wish I could do one or two as well as you are doing that one!!!
