I was wandering around blog-land when I came across “The Free-motion Challenge Quilting Along” by Angela Walters of Quilting is My Therapy.
If you don’t know who Angela Walters is – she’s a fantastic quilter! She has a quilt show “The Midnight Quilter.” Well – go look for yourself! HERE
Anyhow .. the Challenge … “The Free-motion Challenge Quilting Along”
Yes, I signed up …
The first video talks about what you need for the Challenge … the necessities and the “nice-to-have.” There is even a free quilt pattern to do the quilting on.
Am I going to make the free quilt? Yes & No.
I’m going to take fabric – draw some boxes on it (roughly the same size as the boxes on her free quilt pattern). Sandwich the quilt and start practicing.
I’ve already watched the first video … now I’m ready for Week 2.
And the best part: all the videos will be on YOUTUBE … so if you’re like me and already a week or 2 behind, you can still follow along. And it’s FREE!!!
And the very next BEST part is: this is learning … it’s like going to a free motion class with a bunch of 12″ squares sandwiched together … and they don’t count as UFOs or anything … so this won’t count towards my UFO list or influence my PHD in 2018.
And the very next BEST BEST part: I will learn a LOT about free motion quilting! YES!!!
