Charlotte's Web Machine Embroidery Applique

I am reading Charlotte's Web by E. B. White with one of my guided reading groups at school and it inspired me to make this.

A Free Motion Embroidery Teapot and cup

Today it is a teapot and cup. I did have a link for this but just checked it and the link now goes to something else. If you google tea pot colouring in it comes up.

Free motion Embroidery Butterfly

So after my owl yesterday which can be seen HERE I thought I would have another go. I am no good at drawing, so designing anything filled me with fear. I decided to have a look for an easy pattern to follow on the internet. I found this children's colouring page HERE. It was easy to cut out and a good design for me to continuing practicing.

My First go at Free Motion Machine Embroidery

This is my first ever go at free motion machine embroidery. This is a very new concept for me, I have only just realised that this is even possible. I bought a free motion foot for my machine and did a bit of research in to it. I made my first ever free motion machine quilt the other day. It can be seen HERE
I really enjoyed doing this and fancied having another go with the foot so I came up with this. I have a way to go, the only way I can describe it is like drawing but moving the paper instead of the pencil.

My first attempt at free motion quilting

So I have been rather busy! Over the half term I wanted to have a go at something I had never tried before so I opted for quilting. I have to say I have found it throughly enjoyable. I have only made two small cot sized quilts at the moment. The thought of anything larger seems a little to daunting at this point. I opted for a jelly roll, and I have managed to make two small quilts out of one roll. The one I am sharing today was the simpler of the two to make. The quilting was the harder of the two.
