sewcalgal posted the January installment of the 2012 Free Motion Challenge.
This month the teacher is Frances Moore and she posted a wonderful leaf stitch.
She demonstrated it first as by drawing then by stitching.
I drew it out. And all week long I have drawn it as mu doodles at work!
That repetition helps muscle memory so when I sat down to stitch, I was pleasantly surprised!
I stitched first on a scrap of batik quilt sandwich.
Then again on a muslin sandwich.
I like this design. It meanders around in any direction and I can see using this all over a quilt very easily! This one is going into my personal stitch library.
This is such a great learning experience! I am so looking forward to each month!
