Free motion quilting

Several weeks ago I spent an evening sewing at Modern Domestic with the Portland Modern Quilt Guild. I did some "doodle quilting" where I insert little drawings in the middle of the stippling. It seems so much more personal than plain all over stippling.

The little bettle is my favorite. I chose the subjects to coordinate with the colors of the borders. There is also a blue and purple border but I couldn't get any good pictures of anything I'd quilted on those.

It's funny that this has been done for weeks but I'm only now posting about it. It is so hard for me to make that step of picture to computer in order to do the blogging. Expect a huge increase in my posts when a good blogger application is developed for the iPhone!

This is so cool! I want to sit next to you and soak up all the free-motion karma.

I LOVE the idea of doodling in the middle of stippling! I'm totally trying that the next time I FMQ something. I love the pea pod and the alligator.
