Free-Motion Fantasy


This panel was designed by Amanda Murphy and was only available to Bernina Dealers.  She mentioned it here on her blog. I was able to purchase it from my dealer when I took a class from her with my mom. 


I had a lot of fun quilting it up on my domestic sewing machine.  It is easier for me to quilt following a line while sitting down instead of on the long arm. 

Panda doesn't like seeing the dots and arrows which tell you where to quilt. 


I told him to back up and look at the whole quilt. 


This is a quilt that does look better at a distance. 


The backing is a Riley Blake aqua from my stash.  It matched the front very well. 



The binding was leftover from one of my niece's quilts. 


I think the butterfly was my favorite part. 


I named the quilt Free-Motion Fantasy because that is the name of her newest fabric line which reminds me of the panel.


The quilt finishes about 36 x 50 inches.

P.S.  I will be linking up with some of the fun parties on my sidebar.  Check them out to see what other quilters are up to.

  1. Great name for the quilt, and the backing is a perfect match. I love how you can see the quilting so well on the solid. Maybe Panda prefers the back of this quilt?

  3. That's a great way to get the feel of freemotion quilting. I agree it would be easier to quilt on the line on a domestic! I think it is a very fun quilt and looks great on your wall.

  4. That's a great panel and looks wonderful hanging in your space. I agree following lines is so much easier sitting down than on the LA. I like how well the quilting shows on the back.
