Finally free motion quilting

I finally took a trip to Ball Mart and bought the cahones I needed to start quilting the cheery squares quilt. I had a couple shaky starts, so I developed a system to quilt beautifully.
1. Find wax paper
2. Pin a piece of wax paper to the quilt
3. Draw pattern onto wax paper
4. Quilt on top of drawing
5. Peel off paper
6. ???
7. Profit!
I feel so sneaky and so happy because it's WORKING!! I'm free motion quilting!!


  1. Yay I'm so glad you started to quilt it, I know you'll love it when it's done and beautiful. Keep it up! :)

  2. That's a pretty damn brilliant idea! Haha- could have used some lines to race on my Tardis... Some of my swirls were pretty questionable. Can't wait to see how it turns out! Glad you're back in the quilting world :)

  3. This looks like a promising way to quilt! Awesome job!

  4. Cool idea. Good luck with quilting!

  5. Oh how wonderful! Thanks for sharing! (And it looks like we have the same sewing machine!)
