Recently I've been sharing my forays into free motion quilting (FMQ) and received a lot of feedback - thank you! Some of that feedback has been questions from other beginner FMQs asking about how I got started and what resources I used to begin. I'm happy to share, so here are my tips.
- Sewing Machine - In order to FMQ, there are a few things you need to check with your machine before you begin. You will need a FMQ foot (example photo) - this is also traditionally known as a darning foot, so if you have ...
Do you collect lots and lots of recipes on your pinterest board? I do. Do you actually go back and make them?... My answer to that is not really.
I woke up one morning and really wanted to try out some of the recipes from my pinterest board. I decided to bake a couple of my newest pins.
