What to Make with July's Quilty Box!

It's Quilty Box time! A beautiful printed fabric panel arrived with this month's Quilty Box and I decided to use it as an excuse to play with many free motion quilting designs. See what I made from this pretty fabric in this new tutorial:

This fabric was perfect for practicing free motion quilting because it had a lot of nice background space and many unique shapes to quilt around. You might be wondering if it's necessary to quilt THAT densely.

No, it's definitely not, but it will give you a lot more bang for your buck practice wise.

If you want to maximize the amount of practice you get in the smallest amount of fabric used up, quilting on a smaller scale (lines closer together) is the best option.

It's also perfect for making bags like this because the denser quilting creates nice rigid sides that stand up well over time. I hope you'll give this a try and practice free motion quilting and maybe make yourself a little bag too!

Let's go quilt,
