Free Motion Fun

I am still experimenting with some of the designs from Free Motion Quilting with Angela Walters.  This baby quilt is pieced of my own design.  Instead of one consistent stitch across the whole quilt I broke it up with some different techniques.
I am still in love with the organic nature of free motion quilting.  I am not  a stay with in the lines kind of gal and don't feel like my stitching needs to be.  I don't mind that the spacing is inconsistent. I am still new at this but have to say I much prefer the inconsistency to rigid spacing.

The best part is that it is fun and fast!  Baby blankets are a great place to experiment and try new things.  They are a short term commitments and you give it away so if you hate it, you don't have to look at it for long!
