Framed Block Quilt Part 3 - Free Motion Quilting
I think most people can learn basic free motion quilting. It does require some practice, so I used some old quilt pieces and spent some time experimenting. There is a level of expertise in the free motion quilting world that I will never achieve. Yes, I can and will improve with practice, but I wasn't born with true artistic ability, so I imitate. I watch videos of these talented ladies and am amazed at what they can do If you have a chance watch some of the free motion quilting videos posted on YouTube. So, while I can't say that I became an expert at free motion quilting, I became good enough at the basic swirly design to use the technique on my quilt. I posted the close up photo above to give you a better look.
