FMQ Challenge Bonus Tutorial Susan Brubaker Knapp for August, 2012

Hey, everybody, this is Susan Brubaker Knapp. In my bonus tutorial that I did for the Free Motion Quilting challenge, I talked about how you could go out in your yard, into your environment, and find some motifs that are great for quilting designs. 

 I’m just about ready to start on a new project back in my studio. Come on back and I’ll show you how I stitch it up.


 Welcome to my studio. I’m about ready to get started on this piece. It’s a fern motif, and I’ve already done with chalk pencil all of the lines that I want to stitch. And then it’s just pinned together with the batting and the backing fabric. I’m going to be using this variegated green thread. This is an Aurifil 40wt thread and I’ve got a 50wt in the bobbin. I’ve dropped the feed dogs and I’m ready to get started. So in this next section, I’m going to show you how I stitch this up. 

Sit back and watch the piece take shape.
