Quilting the Circle of Geese

Oh how I have struggled trying to decide how to quilt the Circle of Geese quilt. I even revisited free motion quilting (FMQ), but decided that even though I am better, I cannot FMQ well enough to gift a quilt I have quilted that way yet. However, I am pleased that my stitch length is getting better. Maybe it is the Juki TL2010Q–a fantastic machine.

I have decided to do triangles, which you begin by quilting straight lines. I got the idea from Jacquie Gehring’s Next Steps with your Walking Foot class on Craftsy. I highly recommend the class and Craftsy in general. I have learned a LOT from my Craftsy classes. Craftsy doesn’t know I exist as a blog, so I get nothing from them for saying this. If you have never taken one of their classes, start with a free one. They offer free Block of the Month classes each year and the classes remain on line.

Anyway, below are photos of my progress. It is dark and dreary out, so my photos are not good, but I think you can get the idea.

All my practice FMQ pieces become catpads. This is Kassi, the kitten we brought back from Greece on her new catpad.
