I haven’t given up on learning free-motion quilting. I haven’t done my 2012 FMQ challenge for March yet, but I still have lots of time :). I have, however, done some practicing.
This is a really old UFO. It was one of the first projects I did when I started quilting. It was good practice for half-square triangles and piecing. It is about four feet square, so is more of a lap quilt. I thought it was appropriate that I use it to practice free-motion quilting. I don’t have any plans for it yet. I quilted it with medium-sized stippling all over. I would feel comfortable now stippling a bed-sized quilt, so I’ve definitely come a long way. Now it just needs binding, and then I have another finished project.
