Assembling the Quilted Panels

Last month I pulled lots of pretty fat quarters out of the cupboard for some free motion quilting practice on the treadle.

Some panels went better than others.  This is the last one that I did and I was pleased that I managed it all in one line.

All the panels have now been cut into rectangles, then four different rectangles made into one larger panel.  Slowly I am joining all the panels with strips, and gradually putting the quilt together.  

Even the joining strips are from fat quarters.

Much as I hate patchwork prints, this one looks perfect used as a joining strip.

This quilted bedspread is going to look thoroughly girly.

And because it's Friday, it's time to link up again with Leah Day's Free Motion Quilting Blog


  1. Great idea! It looks fantastic so far.

  2. I think they're all perfectly lovely, and your FMQ is really improving. I keep waiting for the day this (FMQ on a treadle) becomes easy.

    1. Thank you Laura Jean! I've made life difficult for myself by using the brushed cotton as the backing. Far too much drag - never again...


  3. I love that quilting design! I will have to try it sometime!

  4. It looks so nice! And FMQ on a treadle - Respect!
