Hey Everyone, welcome back to Free Motion Friday.
Pearls are a girls best friend or at least that is what they say. These ones are not quite wearable but they are very decorative especially in the right space and on the right quilt.
Circles and straight lines is what this free motion motif is all about.
Darning foot in place, feed dogs down and gloves on here is the step by step how to.
Start with a straight line for about a ½″.
At the end of the straight line stitch a circle and come back up to the end of the straight line.
Stitch through the middle of the circle and below the circle about a ½″
Sew another circle just like in step 2.
Stitch through the middle of this circle and down below the circle approximately a ½″. Continue on to fill the length of the space.
Stitch the second row of pearls but this time start with a pearl rather than the string. Continue adding rows until the space is filled.
They also look great in the horizontal orientation.
How do you like these pearls?
