    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.

    Here's the whole quilt before I started quilting it

    You have done a great job on the quilting. The more you do, the better it will get. You will gain some confidence in yourself

    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!!!

    Thank you for your kind comments. It's very empowering when it goes well. I'd like to be more proficient, but everybody starts somewhere, I figure.

    I think you have done a wonderful job. Isn't it rewarding to complete the whole quilt by yourself?
