A New Video Tutorial - FMQ Traveling Loops and Hearts

Have a little Valentine's projects in the works??  Trying to decide how to finish it up??  If so, you might be in the same boat as I was yesterday.  In finishing up my new Valentines quilt (Tutorial coming to the MBS soon, just waiting to hear on the date :)  I decided to try a new Free Motion Quilting design that would represent this holiday full of love.  So what represent love more than hearts??  So I created a little all over design that travels with loops and has adorable little hearts tied in.   And since I thought it might be helpful to you as well, I made a little video.  Enjoy ;)


I hope this helps in finishing up and of your Valentine's projects :)  Boy oh boy, do I like to procrastinate :)  Nothing like day before the holiday :)

  4. Very nice. I attempted something similar with a runner that I made, but I had no idea what I was doing. =) I guess next time, I'll do a little better. =) Thanks for the video.

  6. Thanks for the demonstration. You make it look so easy! I can see that drawing the pattern on paper before trying it on the machine is a good way to get it right.

  11. Hi, Melissa. I used this technique on my friendship swap bag. I think the best hearts ended up on the bottom, lol! See it here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/46475752@N05/8515842379/in/photostream/
