KISMIF 17--Lasso Edge to Edge Pattern

Modern Tradition Quilts

Some of you saw my latest Moda Bake Shop feature, the Jellly Turnover Quilt and asked what was the thread-path for the edge to edge Lasso design, so for today's KISMIF (Keep it simple & make it fun) FMQ (free-motion quilting) thread-path, I'll teach you the "lasso."

It's rather simple:

Start by making a large open-ended circle then trace the edge of your presser foot, echoing smaller and smaller until you have a small, quarter-sized hole, then go out and start another circle.

Here's a close-up of a quilt I used it on:

It looks great on modern and masculine quilts.   In this quilt, I added 5-pointed stars as it is for my son.
Now it's your turn to link-up!  Feel free to share anything in the home-arts you've been working on.
