A while ago, I signed up for a quilt swap (of course I waited till the last minute to make the quilt, but this is how I do my best work. If you only have a minute, it only takes a minute...right?). I liked the parameters for the swap, there weren't any, really; but, it was suggested that we try a new technique. I decided to try my hand at free motion quilting since I have never done it before and it scared me. Seriously, the idea of it made me nervous to get close to my sewing machine. Sometimes, I can be stupid.
Look at all the happy yellow free motion quiltling. I don't know what I was so afraid of, it wasn't really that difficult; and, it was fun. Maybe I will try something bigger next time. Maybe.
I hope my swap partner likes it. I seriously hated to send it away. More details in the gallery.
