Here is "Around the World"
I had bought this panel a couple of years ago with the intention of sewing up a baby charity quilt. The fabrics that are also in here are from a quilt kit I won years ago and this is quilt number 3 from that same kit. Here is the first one, the second one.
I did some FMQ on it and tried a few things out to get use to the new machine. I like the dogwood in the four patch. I do like them better when I kept them bigger than thin ones.
In the red area I did a square spiral. That was a little more difficult to evenly space them going in and then coming back out. I did mess with the tension a bit as the red thread can be seen on the back side. It was fine when the thread was the same color.
Then in the map area I went around the big areas did spirals on the land mass and just meandered in the water.
I can tell that the FMQ on this machine is much easier and works great compared to my old one.
I used Aurfil on all of the free motion and it worked beautifully.
This quilt is going to be sent to Quilts of Compassion through Hand 2 Help. They make and collect quilts for a wide variety of people that have suffered from the after-effects of tornadoes. They recently had a quilt drive and distributed 1600 quilts in the Oklahoma area.
This was also on my Q2 Goals and linking up the finish at The Littlest Thistle
