    FMQ Wholecoth Placemat Project from Craftsy Class

    Here's another project from Cindy Needham's "Design It; Quilt It" Craftsy class. This is a wholecloth placemat; the first of 4 that I am working on. Each one will be a different design, so stay tuned for each of the others as I finish them. (Did I mention that I'm LOVING this class!!!)

    I did the quilting using my DSM, a Juki TL98Q. I drew my design out on freezer paper before I started, and did quite a bit of marking with water soluble pencils on this piece before I started stitching using Superior Threads "Magnifico" 40 wt. poly thread. This is my first experiment using both the parallel lines and the cathedral window motifs.

    That's awesome! I'm inspired to actually use the craftsy quilting classes I bought!

    Beautiful! Think it needs a new description though.......thread art? FMQ project just doesn't do it justice.

    I would never ever ever again never use that as a place mat. that is fantastic. I would put it on the wall. or one a table but no one would be allowed to use it. just beautiful. I will send my address soon so you can mail it to me.
    SMILE- it will make everyone wonder what you are up to.
    Stay strong and keep looking up.

    I'm just in awe! I keep reading and seeing gorgeous outcomes for those that take the Craftsy classes...just wonder what their skill level was BEFORE taking the class??? I can't fathom I could learn to produce this from a class....were you a very accomplished quilter before the class? Curious, and thanks for sharing!!!

    Dejahg~I've been working on my FMQing for 3 years or so in my spare time and was already comfortable with my machine and with doing feathers, etc. What this class is teaching me is better design skills. I'm learning how to combine motifs, stack designs on top of one another, and utilize background "shadow" textures. The cathedral window and parallel lines are new to me also. I'm learning so much from this class that will help to make me a better FMQer! If you check out some of my posts from the last couple of years, you'll see what I was doing "before" this class. "After" this class, I am starting to be able to make my designs have more dimension and texture, whereas before, they were seeming flat.

    I think there are other Craftsy classes that might focus more on building FMQing skills, then you can move on to something like this.

    It is very beautiful. What brand pencil are you using to get such fine detailing?
