Not An Artist

I'm not an artist and yet I am a comptent free-motion quilter.  I am able to quilt things that are nearly impossible for me to draw.  How weird is that?

I teach my "non-artist" way of quilting on Craftsy.

Anyone who has ever taken a class with me knows that ribbon candy is one of my favorite machine quilting designs.

I teach ribbon candy and a few variations in this Craftsy class!

If ribbon candy isn't your favorite machine quilting pattern, why not? what is?

I do love ribbon candy. I also don't consider myself an "artist", but am getting comfortable FMQ. I have Craftsy Unlimited so will check out your class. :) said...

I cannot for the life of me do ribbon candy :-) I can do a lot of other FMQ to a for me satisfactory level. When doing ribbon candy it always end up slanting or the round bits have uneven sizes from top to bottom. No matter how often I have tried and practised on paper or on fabric it goes horribly wrong. So my favourite filler is bubbles/pebbles with some spirals or a simple feather in narrow borders. Thanks for sharing your work and thoughts

I use ribbon candy a lot. It is a very easy design for me plus it goes quickly and also works almost like stitch in the ditch for the blocks which saves time. I need to find a good overall design that is as comfortable for me as ribbon candy!
