Free Motion Fillers Volume 1
with Leah Day
This is a great informative class on how to FMQ and different designs to use. Leah Day is a wonderful instructor. She’s nice to listen to and gives clear examples. If you’ve never checked out her website, you should! You are missing out. When I purchased this class I wanted to use my Bernina and do FMQ on my quilts. I still do. However I quilt big quilts – usually Queens with a Full thrown here and there. I hate quilting these on my little Bernina 330. The throat space is just too small for that size. So my intent originally was to take this class and practice until I was good so I can have different options to quilt. But I hated quilting on my Bernina. The smaller quilts – like baby quilts I generally do straight lines. So I watched the class while finishing up projects here and there. There are a lot of great ideas. And I plan to use this class as something to refer to when I feel the urge the FMQ on my domestic. I may have smaller quilts that I want to do a design on in my Bernina. One of the issues I found with the designs is that they are really small and small quilting tends to make the quilts stiff. I want soft quilts. I like that I can take the designs and enlarge it so that I can retain a soft quilt if I wanted to. I may one day take the designs and practice them to see if there are any that I like to use in one of my quilts. If I ever get a real sewing table for my machine, I may take this class again specifically for that. Until then, I will consider this class complete.
