Free Motion Quilting - Echoed Paisleys

This video walks you through the basics of creating an echoed paisley all over free motion quilt design.  This is a beautiful design that creates a chic and elegant finish to your quilt. The paisley shape is just like making half of a heart or a feather and then just echo inside, and then outside to travel.  And like all free motion quilting, practice makes perfect :)  Enjoy!!

Here is an example of the pattern :)


And here's the video :)

  1. This is a wonderful video! I really like that you show the reality of quilting on an actual quilt with bulk, instead of just doing a sample piece. Samples are so much easier. Watching you do a real quilt is much better (and more true to life)! I have tried drawing paisleys and I'm not very good at it. Now with this video, I think I can do it now! Thank you.
