Fun Day

Today some of the ladies from The Patch went along to a "Free Motion Quilting" workshop.
Lesley Finch from Finishes Nest was coming along to teach use a few tricks.

We needed to draw up and pin three 1mt X 1mt quilts for homework.


Lesley explaining how we can do lovely borders with free motion quilting. 
Gather around ladies while I demonstrate how to draw up with templates.


  I had a great day and learnt a lot. Especially that I need lots of practise.

  6. That sounds like exacting work--- What is free motion quilting? is it by hand? or machine?from one who is eager to learn.

  8. I agree with everyone else...it looks like you had fun! I know nothing about quilting, but I'm in awe of anyone that can free motion quilt. I have trouble with just a diamond grid! LOL!!!
