I have been on here a little while - just started getting active in autumn 2011. Now and again I try to find out where members might be posting about free machine work. by this I mean dropping feed dogs and drawing or colouring in your own designs with the machine. I know there is a machine embroidery section of the forum, but it seems to be about the stitched out designs with an embroidery unit on your machine.

If anyone can point me to this topic, I would be grateful. I do alot of this type of work. I am looking to use it more in garments. It would be fun to hang out with others doing the same.

As far as I know, there is no discussion on free motion quilting here on PR. But I have been wrong before!
I am taking a course on it locally right now, and love it! It's become a bit of an obsession... I'd love it if you would share some photos!

There doesn't seem to be a particular place. Do a search, and if you don't find it, start a thread under Creative Sewing. That seems to be the closest. Sometimes it is not easy to determine where a subject should go.

You didn't say for quilting, so I'm assuming you mean just regular free motion embroidery, which is a lot of fun. It might make an interesting topic.

Cheap and Picky has a nice western shirt that was embroidered like that on her blog and some details on how she did it. I don't know how to link on here but a google search should pull it up. Some of the early western stars had elaborate embroideries done freehand on their show outfits so maybe some research online would turn up more information.

There have been quite a few threads recently. The list is here.

Craftsy has some interactive courses in their quilting section.

thanks everyone. I didn't get back here for a bit because my special friend doggy got very ill suddenly and has gone already.

Anyway, I will look into starting something!

I am not really talking about the free motion quilting, although some pieces use that as well in order to complete the work.
Here are a few links to some pieces I have made.

This form of needleart is not as popular as it once was because of all the machines which include embroidery, but it really is fun. (Notice some of those who responded mentioned quilting). You do nice work.

A woman came to our American Sewing Guild meeting and gave us a lot of hints on how to do faces. Her work was stunning.

Sorry about your doggy.

I love this sort of work because it isn't designed by someone else!

I started a thread over on the Creative Sewing section. If you know someone doing this sort of work on this forum, perhaps you can point them in that direction. I would like to have a discussion about how to use free motion embroidery on garments.
