Free-motion Embroidery Art Quilt

April 18th, 2008 | Posted by Emma in Quilting - (0 Comments)

I finished a UFO from a couple years ago today. It was packed away, and when I rediscovered it, it made sense what I needed to do next!! It was a light bulb moment…and right during Brennan’s naptime. So I worked as fast and furious as I could to finish it!

This was made with free motion embroidery on my sewing machine. There are only three thread colors and one background fabric. It is a subtle geometric design, with some botanical elements. I had a lot of fun playing with filling patterns in the border. I do enjoy the traditional stipple, but this was a way to break out of that (on a small scale). Hmmm. Maybe I should try those stitches on a larger scale!
