I still consider each new quilt that I FMQ, a practice piece. My go-to design is swirls. I can do other designs, but my brain tells my hands to swirl, swirl, swirl. So the background on this quilt is swirled. I tried something new to me in the squares. I got the idea from this video . It is called wine-glass. It was tricky to keep consistent in size but I am OK with how it looks.
My first time. I spray basted the layers and I am using Konfetti 50# by Wonderfil on the top and bottom. My needle is a Superior Titanium 90/14. The FMQ is going along without any troubles. I am quilting on my Pfaff QE 4.0 and I am using my newest foot, the open-toed free-motion foot for use in the SensorMatic function. Love it! I am about half way to being finished so hopefully I will be done with this one soon. My next one is my New York Beauty. I need to find something wonderful to do in the wide black borders. Should I keep it simple or how about feathers? Not swirls. Any suggestions welcome.
