In my last blog post, I mentioned I had been working on my FMQ Sampler quilt. I finished it this week so I’m ready to show it all off!
I started this quilt way back in October 2014 during a FMQ workshop organized by the Montreal Modern Quilt Guild. The fabulous MR Charbonneau from Quilt Matters led the workshop and can I say – she’s an amazing teacher. We learned 12 different FMQ designs during the class and MR also demonstrated a really cool quilt-as-you-go method for joining the blocks once they were quilted.
My favourite designs are the pebbles…
The square spirals…
And the squared meander or squared stipple…
But all of the designs she showed us where a lot of fun.
I chose to join my blocks completely by machine instead of hand-stitching the sashing to the back. I used a zigzag stitch on my machine and find it adds a bit of fun to the overall design. It’s also a lot more secure that way because my hand-stitching is dreadful!
The quilt-as-you-go method was so much fun, I will definitely use it again.
