Free Motion Quilting Friday....

Can you believe this...I'm posting my FMQ to link up with Cindy...I'm feeling a wee excited that I am so organised this week.  Usually the FMQ task is lagging behind and squeezed into Saturday or Sunday.

This week Cindy of Fluffy Sheep Quilting had us trying .......... Superstar

 It did take me a little while to find my way but I found that I turned the fabric at each point, my lines seemed to be straighter then and therefore kept the shape of the stat.
Oh if you should think that you may need to might be a good idea to stop, as I found.

 I chose to use yellow thread for my Superstar...maybe I should have chosen a different colour to show off the sewing.
I wonder what she will have in store for us next week....Looking forward to it already Cindy.

Thanks to all that suggested ideas for the binding, I will bring them out again this weekend and make my final decision on what to do.
And I have found a new home for my fabric, Now I need to find a new home for the DVDs.

Oh and Happy Thanksgiving to all in the US.  Hope you all had a great day.


  1. Erin this is looking really good! And well done for being so organised! Do you think you can use this pattern!

  2. I think you did a great job with your star. I found sneezing or just about anything else that interrupts my concentration sends my stitches in a different direction. Is that the zen of quilting?

  3. So well done! It totally looks like a star :) Your lines are lovely and straight too. Great stitching!

  4. Your star is fabuloso Erin! The lines are so straight and I like how they get farther apart away from the center. Excellent work!

  5. Your star is absolutely awesome! Fabulous job!

  6. Looks fantastic!! You're way more organised than me, I've still not done it yet!! I'd love to see this on a quilt :)

  7. What you've done looks really good!
