Free Motion Quilting Easter Eggs

Easter Eggs, FMQ

Happy Monday, Quilters!

I originally planned to call today “Mistake Monday”, but decided to go for a more positive approach…

Let me explain…Two years ago, while working on The Easter Egg tutorial, I stitched a little Egg Quilt…(the lower part of the quilt below.)

The quilt has decorated eggs all along the border.  Later, I filled the center with The Squiggle Square.

Both of these motifs are fabulous…but together…”not so much!”

Easter Eggs, FMQOver the weekend, I had a few minutes (and a little of this hand dyed fabric leftover) to re-do the quilt.

Easter Eggs, FMQI used Sulky rayon and a little metallic too…

In the bobbin, Aurifil 50 wt cotton–grips the specialty threads really well.

Of course…my BERNINA 820 with the large harp space…(No stitch regulator)

Easter Eggs, FMQMuch better!

Easter Eggs, FMQSometimes….Less is more!

–a lesson I have difficulty remembering!

Easter Eggs, FMQHope you are decorating eggs or quilts or both this week!


PS…There’s also an Easter bunny tutorial for more fun!
