  1. Rose you are ROCKIN’ this!! THIS is how one gets better at FMQ; you just dive right in, throw caution to the wind, do not rip, and trust that it will sink in with laundering (it WILL I promise) and will provide quilty texture, and the recipient will ADORE it. You made my day my friend!! Woot freaking woot for you!!

    Kudos to you for giving so many new things a try. That’s the only way to become proficient, and you are well on your way. Have you looked at Esther’s 22 samples posts, by any chance? She makes it pretty easy to plan, if you start at the bottom of the list with her first post from April 7, 2017.

    Yeah!!! You’re doing great!!! I love it! Here’s an idea (not an original one from me) but mix it up … in one plus, do a swirl then an “e” (or 2) then a swirl … or a stipple with occasional swirls … or write your name and surround it with stipple or Luke’s name … keep having fun with it!
    Happy Happy Quilting! 🙂

    You’re stitching is look good! I really like the double loops in the first photo – adds more interest to the design.

    These are looking amazing. My only easy suggestion is: send them out to a longarmer. I cheat that way! :0)

    Wow, your FMQ is really coming along. I can’t wait to finish a top to give it a try.

    What a great way to try and practice quilting designs.

    I need to get bolder in practicing some quilting designs. I usually wimp out because I am doing it on a real top. I just need to make a fake sandwich and get on with it. All your designs are lovely!

  10. Way to go Roseanne! I love your Free motion quilting❤️❤️. The swirls are my favorite. I need to follow your lead and do a practice quilt with lots of different stitches. Great idea!😊

  11. Your quilting looks awesome! Only you see things. No one else will. Way to go!

    Wow I am in awe of your beautiful quilting; I love them all.

  13. I love what you did. It is good to work on these skills on quilts that will get used and loved. As you said, Luke will not notice, and, with time you won’t. If you use the same weight & kind of thread in the bobbin (or sometimes a little finer say 50 on top and 60 or sewfine on bottom) it often allows you to use two different colored threads on the top and bottom. I does depend on how happy your machine is with tension (and sometimes I find the loops and can make my machine loopy). I think it is fab and so glad you stretched your wings (I just got Leah Day’s calendar to stare at so I keep getting ideas).

  14. I’m so jealous— your FMQ looks really good! Great tip on the loop-de-loo I will try that — your Paisley’s look great (Leah’s design) — I think she’s a great teacher. I’m using some of her walking foot techniques on a few projects. Have a wonderful day!

    What about some meandering that looks like water? It goes back and forth with rounded ends. I used it on my first jeans quilt.

    Whoohoo, you are moving right along!! If only you could turn off the light on your sewing machine and shine a light in from the side. And no other lights on in the room-that is how I do it on the longarm and it really does help.

  17. It looks great! You are doing really well with your free motion. Well done!
