Free Motion Quilting

I free motion quilted this piece of ice dyed fabric for a friend.  It is a piece I won during a drawing when I attended MQX Quilt Festival– Midwest in Springfield, Illinois last year.

Because of the organic nature of the ice dyed fabric I didn’t want to quilt the piece too formally.  I love the free-flowing quilting.  Here is the quilting from the back.

The backing was an old linen cloth that has a design on for embroidery.  My friend plans on having friends and family that come over to her house to sign and date the back.  What a great idea.

If you would like to try your hand at ice dying this is the book that came with the piece of fabric.  I haven’t tried it yet but hope to in the near future.
