Sew Cal Gal is hosting a Free Motion Quilting Challenge. Every month, for the next year, there will be a tutorial with a feature teacher. This month the teacher is Frances Moore. She made a video tutorial on heart shaped leaves, and gave us lots of pointers. Here are my results:
Stitched on a Bernina
stitched on a Pfaff
I doodled on paper first, then tried sewing the design. It was awkward stitching at first. My brain was determined to make elongated oval leaves, not heart shaped! (At times I would forget to make the center vein too). It will take some practice to get this design flowing the way I would like. I left some blank areas and got myself stuck in a few corners, but I like the overall effect.
I'm looking forward to the upcoming months of practice!! Why not join in the challenge too!
