    Love the colors on this. Of course RED is one of my favorite colors now. I have not done much in the way of machine quilting, but I can imagine the pebble design would be a little hard to do.!

    I find straightline quilting the easiest. It’s other quilting that I want to learn. I need to take those first steps and practice. I won’t get skilled otherwise!

    I love to FMQ…..once I get over the initial fear of actually starting to stitch. It does take practice!

    Love the pebble quilting! I have only done it on very small sections of landscape style quilts; I can’t imagine just yet doing it on anything larger… time consuming! I do almost all free motion quilting. I quilt for others and I learned to FMQ because I found straight line quilting a lot more difficult for various reasons; a lot more starts and stops, having to constantly turn the quilt depending on the design, and when outlining shapes, it seems like even the most particular piecers still have seams that are off and the straight line quilting points it out more. Don’t get me wrong; I do love the look of straight line quilting, and when I have time and can be casual about it, I do enjoy doing it.

    I just love Ruby and I can’t wait for yardage to arrive. Looking forward to seeing the front of your quilt! 🙂

    My favorite way to machine quilt is to have someone else do it! lol However, since that is out of my price range I am practicing straight line quilting right now. I have a class lined up later this month to learn FMQ. It seems really scary to me. vbg We’ll see!
    I can’t wait for your big reveal! Yay! You always have such fresh, clean ideas.

  9. I love to free motion quilt. It is one of my favorite parts of the quilting and I am always trying to branch out and try new designs.

    Your quilt looks stunning from the back. I can’t wait to see the front 🙂

    I’ve just started machine quilting so it is straight line albeit not always perfectly straight. I’ll be back.

  13. Tamara says:

    Just starting to toy with fmq. Love the ruby line. I’ll be ready!

  16. Angela Lysandrou says:

    I love straight line quilting, I use a lot of the decorative stitches on my machine with varigated thread. Would love to do FMQ but never seem to find the time to practice.

  17. I adore the look of pebble quilting. I keep trying over and over again but I just can’t do it! So far all my quilts have been quilted in a variety of straight lines because my attempts at free motion have all failed miserably 🙁

  18. Love the zigzag quilting on the first cushion and the sneak peek of the Ruby quilt is lovely!

  19. Diana Nelson says:

    The pebble quilting is great. I need to practice more on my quilting. The Ruby quilt is very nice.

  20. Jennifer Gail says:

    I’m just learning how to piece so I don’t know how to quilt yet.

  21. Cheryl says:

    I stink at FM quilting, but, maybe I could do the straight line quilting. It’s more like stitch in the ditch, which I CAN do. I usually just hand quilt, which is why nothing ever gets finished.
