loco about motion

I don't have a picture to show you but just wanted to say that I have become crazy about free motion quilting. I have been practicing a bunch and just have to get busy with a project to quilt! Hmm. Maybe it is time to get out some of those UFOs I have stashed...or maybe start one of the ideas I have floating around in my head. FMQ is so much easier now that I have the new bobbin case and I have become relaxed about it.
I do need to spend time packing this week for my big Florida trip so I really can't start something new so I guess I will just go and practice some more!

Get one of those thingermadingers that go in your bobbin case & help do away with birds nests. I think they might be called Magic Bobbin Washers. I have no clue why they work, but they do.

My favorite thing about quilting is shopping for fabric. My second favorite is the quilting. I love to free motion quilt. Best part - I don't pay someone else to do it for me!

Congratulations on conquering free motion quilting. Once the tension is good everything else gets to be so much easier. Glad you finally found the fun!

I made up a simple throw-sized quilt to practice my free motion quilting on - it's so much fun!

NO PROBLEM...when we are both back at home in February, I will be happy to give you some small things that need to be free-motion quilted (and I can't do it) and you can practice on them, okay? :) You better get packing in the next day or so!

Maybe when you and Pat get home we can get together and you can show us what to do and how to do it???????? Have a great trip and a wonderful time.

I just love free motion and it is addictive.

Have a fun safe trip!

Sounds like you're feeling more comfortable with FM. Enjoy the process!
