More Free Motion Quilting


Hi everyone

Hope you have all been having a good week.  Been very busy here, working on a couple of quilts for my display next year.
I've decided not to show everything I'm working on in its entirety, so apologies for that.  I thought it would be nice to have a few pieces that people have not seen.  If you are not in the UK, don't worry, I have been taking lots of photos and will post them at some point in the future.

Lets start with the back of a quilt -


This is the center section done.
Now I had to think of a design to go in the borders lying along side this.


 This is what I came up with.  I'm trying my hand at Mc Tavishing again.  I used it before on the background for Gecko Fabulous but it got covered up by the geckos and leaves so you can't see much at all.

 I'm using a fabric which has glitter on it.  Looks nice but I'm not sure how wise that was as there is glitter everywhere - ie inside my machine.  I have been using the vacuum cleaner daily to clean it so it should be ok.


I've used 2 layers of Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 and all the threads are varigated Gutermans.






 Its turned out to be a nice little sample.


This is a sneaky peek of the design on the quilt.  It's coming along nicely now and with a bit of a push I'm hoping to get it finished next week.
So much to do, so little time.......
Happy Quilting
Rhianon.

This is beautiful work Rhianon! I love your thread choices. I have been using wool to get puff but I love the look of two layers of 80/20-thanks for sharing the details!

This looks fabulous! I'm guessing those are undersea flowers and ferns with your fishes, can't wait to find out! I have tried some McTavishing and I can't get the hang of it on my longarm yet. I just need to take some time to practice!!!
