Wood Grain

I spent the weekend trying out a new Free Motion Quilting design, which I absolutely love!!!  It is called Wood Grain and is from the Machine Quilting Negative Space with Angela Walters craftsy class.  I so enjoyed this class and really felt that I learned a lot of great helps that have given me more confidence in my quilting.

I choose to mainly focus on the "knots" which is a little different from the original design, but I like the overall effect.  The design was really easy to get the hang of and went relatively quick for such a dense design.

The design so lends itself to the quilt, which sadly I can't show anymore of for a while.  But I will say, that I am just head over heels happy with the way this quilt turned out.  So excited!!

Hope you had a fabulous weekend!!  Did you get in any time at your sewing machine??

Pin It!


  1. wow! you just amaze me! this is fantastic and would look awesome on a quilt with lots of greens and browns.

  2. That looks so cool!!!! I cant wait to see the complete project! I did get in a tiny bit of sewing time, but not what I hoped to get in. Oh well.

  3. Lovely quilting! It almost looks like little flames :) Unfortunately, I don't get to spend much time in my sewing space on the weekend :(

  4. Those wood grain FMQ looks really cute! Great job!

  5. That looks great!! You did a great job on that! Nope, no sewing time: I'm in Utah (Manila and South Jordan) visiting family. I go home tomorrow, so maybe I can sew after I catch up!! :-) Hope you are doing well. Hugs, H in Healdsburg

  6. Luv the wood grain design it would look great turned vertical on a modern quilt. Yes I did get to quilt Saturday and Sunday! I put the finishing touches on a quilt I've entered in our local county fair. Also, I made 3 mug rugs, one for my grandson's teacher as school ends Friday and 2 for co-workers June birthdays.

  7. I really like that wood grain pattern - that would look great in a "guys" quilt! No sewing for me :o( When it gets nice out, I go out. I have 9 months or so of rain and gloom so my Juki takes a Summer break!

  8. Looks awesome! I so want to learn how to do that, I love the look of it. I can barely free-motion quilt as it is (don't have enough time to devote to it) so it will probably be a while before I tackle that. In the time being I will just enjoy everyone else's work.

  9. Cool :o) I had a play with that pattern a wee while ago, it was fun


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
