Hey Everyone, welcome back to Free Motion Friday.
Flowers, we all love flowers and these flowers never die which is a bonus.
The free motion flowers are a bit more of a challenge but with practice they too can be mastered and added to your free motion quilting repertoire.
I have made a couple of quilts using this motif as an all over edge to edge design. This design can also be made any size to fit with the size of the area or quilt being quilted.
To tie the flowers together meandering has been used.
To start stitch a straight line and then put a circle at the end of it. This will be the centre of the flower.
Continue stitching in an arc back down to the circle – the first petal.
Repeat this arc to make the second petal.
The third petal is made in the same fashion.
And finally add the last petal.
Depending on the size of the centre you may want to add more petals.
Remember nothing is perfect in nature so if some of your flowers are a bit odd shaped that’s okay.
