Teaching My Mom
Earlier this year my mom came over a few times and I taught her how to do free motion quilting on her Bernina Q24.
We started by loading a sample sandwich (about 21 x 36 inches) where she could practice quilting in rows.
Once nice thing with practicing on old fabric is that it doesn't matter what the end result looks like. She used a couple different colors of thread and quilted each row several times. This was a great way to develop muscle memory.
This is the first little quilt she free motion quilted all by herself. It is spirals which end up looking like upside-down e's.
This is her second little quilt. She quilted it in wiggles.
I love the texture from quilting in rows, and I am so proud of my mom. She plans on quilting another little flannel quilt before quilting a chunky race quilt like mine.
