Meadow quilt FMQ

I was so excited to share my Meadow Brick Wall quilt finished last time, that I forgot to talk about (and show you) some of the FMQ designs I made on this quilt.

It was my first time to FMQ an entire quilt. And to make things more exciting, I decided to change FMQ design (and thread) on every single brick. I was inspired by two books to create my designs: “Free-Motion Quilting with Angela Walters” and “First Steps to Free-Motion Quilting by Christina Cameli”. I highly recommend those two books for anyone interested on starting FMQ.

As my quilt has over 60 bricks, I wouldn’t show them all but here is my top 10:

As you see, my waves are far to be perfect but I still love them. IMG_9439

The same design structure could be used in different manners depending on the fabric and give a total different look.

Sometimes, I didn’t even create a specific design, but just followed the decorative pattern from the fabric.IMG_9438Adding a bit of jigsaw puzzles pieces here.

And some flowers there.

I also liked adding simpler and bigger motifs such as these three hearts.

But dense motifs are also great. IMG_9431

I’m usually not a big fan of “pebbles” FMQ but it worked well on this brick.IMG_9430 I made several bricks with leafs and feathers like this one. IMG_9429

It’s also quite cool to look at the quilt from the back to see all these designs and colours popping up.

Towards the end of the quilting, I was more adventurous to try something more challenging and I realised this Plume feather based on Angela Walter’s video tutorial.
