Free Motion Quilting Design Gallery

The Free Motion Quilting Project

In 2009, I created a blog with a really long name that was eventually shortened to the Free Motion Quilting Project. My original goal was to share 365 free motion quilting filler designs in one year, with a new quilting video and photos shared daily.

Whew! That was a lot of work. It ended up taking three years to complete that original challenge. Once I'd shared so much, I realized I wanted to keep going and we now have nearly 500 designs organized for you here in a growing gallery so they're easy to browse and enjoy.

When I began this project, I knew how to quilt four free motion quilting designs: Stippling, McTavishing, Pebbling, and Paisley and you'll find tutorials for these as well as all the rest I've shared over the years linked up below.

365 Free Motion Quilting DesignsIt's nice to enjoy the designs off the screen too, so make sure to check out the book 365 Free Motion Quilting Designs. This is a picture book of the first set of designs shared to the Free Motion Quilting Project and is the largest collection of quilting designs ever published. It's the perfect book to keep near your sewing machine when you can't think of the next design to quilt.

I love sharing new quilting designs and teaching everyone in the world how to machine quilt and I couldn't do this without your support. Click Here to support this gallery by ordering quilting supplies from our Quilt Shop.

Let's go quilt,
