Machine Quilt Family Tree - #461

It's time for a new machine quilting design! I was playing with simple circular designs the other day and began doodling stick figures. Then I connected them together and realized I had a fun new free motion quilting design:

I'm calling this design Family Tree, which makes me laugh when I think of little people all growing together in a big tree. Learn how to machine quilt this new design by watching the video below:

Looking back through 365 Free Motion Quilting Designs, it's easy to see that Family Tree is a nice combination of Bare Branches and Lollipop Chain, so if you like this design definitely give those a try too. 

Family Tree will be a great way to practice quilting circles and travel stitching, which are always important skills to build. The design itself can be quilted on any scale so if you're needing a funky, fun quilting design to cover a quilt quickly, this would be a great choice!

Let's go quilt,
