The Free Motion Quilting Project began in August 2009 and the original goal was to create 365 new designs. Free motion quilting has continued to inspire me and more designs are constantly popping into my head, so the project has continued to grow with new designs posted each week.
Another fun way to enjoy the designs is with the book 365 Free Motion Quilting Designs. This book features beautiful photos of each design stitched out in small squares. If you're ever wondering what design to stitch next in your quilt, a quick flip through this book and you will have many designs to inspire you!
