Free Motion Quilting Video: Quilting Motion on a Larger Quilt

I've been quilting up a storm on this commissioned piece as I should have done it a few months ago. I'm free motion quilting some sky in this video, but you can't see the design well where I am stitching. But if you are new to FMQ, this gives you a better idea of how to move the quilt than my videos done of small samples.

I'm doing the sky in layers, first little clouds, then windy wiggly lines. Next I'll put in some larger scale McTavishing. Then I'll move to the darker areas of applique and add details to the scene.

I'm really looking forward to the border because I'm going to do ruler work and feathers! Fun, fun, fun!

What have you been doing?

Any suggestions for my videos?


  1. Love that you show your process, it reaffirms to me that I can machine quilt, slow and sure.

    1. Of course you can! Have faith in your developing abilities and how you like to do it!
