Welcome back to Week 10 of #freemotionfriday! Our video library is growing with these awesome videos, so if you’ve missed any of them be sure to search for them here. Learning each week with you, as we share our faith journey, is such a pleasure. If you’re just beginning your journey, here’s a post to help launch your free motion practice this year.
The inspiration for this free motion quilt design comes from Luke 23:43, which reads “Jesus said to them, “Today you will be with me in paradise.”” The three crosses, on which Jesus and the two men to whom he spoke, is the focus of this design. The promise he made is one we can all aspire towards – being in paradise!
Let’s get started in creating this cross design! Here are three tips to help you on the journey (be sure to check out the video for the full cross free motion quilting tutorial):
As you’ll see in the video above, it’s really important to really make sure to make 90-degree angles; there are nothing but 90-degree angles in this entire design.
…and that’s it! Watch the short video above that breaks down the process even more. I look forward to hearing how your sewing goes; leave a comment letting me know how you did, and be sure to share your work on IG using the tag #freemotionfriday so I can see your beautiful work!
