FMQ Project Lesson #1

  First I had to get my machine set up correctly, as per Leah's instructions. Then I did a practice session of circles, swirls, whatever came out as I tried to control my fabric.


So I did circles in gray, then in green, then in navy, over and over.

Next, wiggle around in rows and then I got creative as I was still trying to control machine,
my gloves, and the fabric.

More rows of stippling, meandering, swirling, all still trying to get my machine, hands, eyes, and brains all on the same page.

Now for something fun.
 This was the worse fabric ever (brown) to use. As you can see it was running. I also used white fabric that I basted and now have some ready for today's lesson.

I had so much fun swirling and stippling. I just used the same swatch over and over in different colors.

    1. Wow! What a creative way to practice! Please please please save these samples and put them together into a funky art quilt! It's gorgeous!

  2. I'm still trying to get my brain to stay connected to my hands when fmq'ing! Once my brain strays the hands follow. Hee, hee.
    Great practice pieces.
