I recently bought a Janome 3160QDC because it was light enough for me to take to classes. Anyway a couple of weeks ago I had my first ever free-motion quilting lesson on said machine. Deborah Louie was the teacher.
It was fun and a little challenging but I enjoyed it enough to want to try some more, though I haven’t yet.
I thought you might like to see some examples of my first attempts.
As you can see I have somewhat less control over the machine than Deborah has but I’m not unhappy for a first attempt.
Here are some more of my efforts. From left to right Waves, Flowers and Stars and under them are some of Deborah’s examples including some fancy flowers, a variety of spirals and some geometrics:
As you can see I have lots of practice ahead of me but it’s great to have some of Deborah’s examples to follow.
