Freemotion Sampler

Marie, local PFAFF dealer and quilt group leader, asked me to suggest a project for the group to work on in 2010.  This was just after I discovered a lovely freemotion quilting blog and have been playing with some of the patterns for a couple of weeks, so the obvious choice was to suggest a Freemotion Sampler, reversible and done 'quilt-as-you-go.'  So no less than 3 techniques in one quilt (or then 2 if you take in mind that it can be reversed).

The group Golden Threads (directly translated from the Afrikaans, Goue Drade) had their final get together at a local restaurant where my completed quilt was shown.

Everyone in the group is rather eager (I hope!!) to try their hand at Freemotion quilting and our target date or deadline before being fined a course fee is beginning May 2010. 

Even while having wonderful cake and drinks we managed to work through a Freezer Paper (now available at PFAFF, Bloemfontein) tutorial and we rediscovered English Paper piecing done with Freezer Paper and everyone went home with enough paper to complete a small Christmas decoration.  Looking forward to the new year with this group!

Completed:  1 December 2009
