A brand new free motion (long arm) motif to try?
Just looking for inspiration?
You’re in luck–because the November issue of American Quilter (featuring a free motion quilt column by Yours Truly) is on newsstands now!
Answer this question: What sewing machine do YOU use for YOUR free motion, long arm, or mid arm quilting? Make and model….Also, does your machine allow you to drop the feed dogs? (I’m wondering if I need to do a tutorial on FMQ when you can’t drop your feed dogs…)
Please leave your answer in the comment section. Four winners (US and Canada only) will be announced on Monday…

It’s another glorious autumn morning here in Minnesota-the best days of the year! I love all of the motifs of autumn-leaves, trees, pumpkins, corn…
The acorns are in there, but because I stitched contour lines within the body of the acorns (see options in the Oak Leaf and Acorn tutorial), there is not enough contrast to see them clearly. (I would leave them open next time so they “pop” like the Oak Leaves and The Grid.)
NOTE-Look closely to the left of the image above–an upside down acorn is visible. On the right-the acorn with the contour is stitched, but not visible–not enough contrast….
Happy Harvest Stitching,
