Silhouette Quilt

Every now and again, I decide I need to practice free machining to get more control.  This time, rather than just stitch random samples, I took one of the designs from my City and Guild diploma work on faces which was based on  a silhouette of my daughter (see this post on Gallimaufry for details) and made a little quilt, about 18” by 12”.  I wanted to try working some of the interesting fillers designs from the free motion quilting project but made the fundamental error of choosing very busy fabric, which meant that most of the time I couldn’t see what I was stitching.  Still, you learn by your mistakes  - the next one will be better.
