In this project, I’ll show you two of the techniques listed above; the stand-alone FMQ design or embroidery and the Raw Edge Appliqué with FMQ design.
This project can be done on a domestic sewing machine. All you would need is a FMQ foot and to lower the feed dogs. It can also be done with a sit down mid arm quilting machine.
You can use the Heart 2 Heart Mandala to make a decorative cushion or, my personal favourite, frame your work as if it were an oil painting. Use a blank painting canvas, wrap the quilted piece around it and staple it to the back. Then cover the back with thick black cardboard used for crafts and install a hook behind the frame to hang the piece on the wall. It will become a conversation piece.
Hopefully, this will give you the push you need to start Free Motion Quilting unique designs on your projects with confidence.
