Woodland Height Chart: A FMQ finish

The Finish

A month ago my mother in law asked how to free motion quilt on the machine she kindly got me last year. So I got out this cute height chart panel I'd picked up and long since hidden away. I'm so happy I did. The Husqvana Automatic I use is an old machine, but a lovely one. All those problems of bunching fabric, eyelash like loops on the back of the fabric and general difficulties in getting the lines of stitching where I wanted, were gone.

So, off I set, trying out lots of patterns I'd been admiring on pintrest blogloving. I did loops for the sky (hoping to add movement), a bark pattern for the tree and a bit of a sampler feel for the coloured blocks on the left.

I can't say the quilting is all that, but I'm really pleased to have finished it and got my first FMQ project under my belt.

  1. Thanks Denise. I was nervous as I've done very little before. Glad to have taken the plunge - the only way is up :D
