For the 2012 Free Motion Quilting Challenge, January’s tutorial was a leaf design. I did leaves on most of a layered fat quarter, until I got bored with the heart-shaped leaves.
I also tried out the leaf with spiral variation from Frances Moore’s blog (no pic taken), which was fun to do but the result did not inspire me. I played around until I came up with a leaf shape I liked, then basted one of my UFOs and had at it. I’m almost done with the main body, no idea yet what I will do for the border, maybe another’s month’s tutorial will have something?
