    FMQ Suitable for Framing?

    Here's what I've been up to this afternoon...Sliver-grey thread on black Kona Cotton. I had to try out some Sharon Schamber designs I found on youtube . It's a wall hanging about 13" x 18" and still needs binding or a frame; I haven't decided which.

    Enjoy!

    Wow! It is awesome. Binding or framing either will look beautiful.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    That's lovely. Is it machine stitched? It's very even..do you have a stitch regulator?

    Thank you, Janice. Yes, it's machine stitched on my domestic machine, and no, I do not have a stitch regulator.

    Beautiful project - what nice designs and I bet you had a lot of fun doing it. I'm inspired to try something like that - have been wanting to do more FMQ on my machine. Do you use that Leah Day Slider? I am wondering if I should spend the bucks to get one. I do get tired trying to horse my projects around as I work on them.
    KEEP CALM and CARRY ON!!

    Fabulous "practice session." Such even stitches and the detail is incredible for such a small quilt.

    Wow that is spectacular!! You have so much talent! This reminds me of Zentangles, in fact I see some known tangle designs in there. I haven't read through all the posts so please forgive me if this is a duplicate question... Did you mark this before quilting or just go at it with blank fabric?

    I love the stylized peacock feathers and will definitely be finding a way to incorporate those into my quilting. YES! This is definitely suitable for framing.

    Thanks for your wonderful complements! And you're right, there are some zentangle elements in there along with some Sharon Schamber designs. I've ordered a couple of zentangle books that should come this week, so you'll be seeing more of that from me soon. You'll also find a youtube video on those peacock feathers and others from Sharon Schamber here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62HwbEdz37s

    I didn't do any marking on this one, or even really have much off a plan before I started. I did the borders first, and then just started in one corner filling in with different designs. My original plan was to use this piece to try out designs and then incorporate them in a slightly larger piece, but this one turned out well enough to be a "keeper" itself.

    Wow!

    I wonder if a silver or pewter frame would set it off perfectly. It is exquisite Wendy
