I'll be the first to admit this looks like no other free-motion quilting I've ever seen. It's pretty awful. I think that's primarily the result of two factors:
- Being too tentative
By the way, the lettering on the fabric is a result of the alphabet stickers applied to wet, paint-washed fabric. I put the fabric in the sun to dry, then removed the stickers and outlined the light lettering with a fabric pen.
My beautiful DP swears its the loveliest fabric journal cover she's ever seen. I pretended not to remember that she's never actually seen any other fabric journal covers.
