QA # 24 Tree Roots

This week in our Quilt Along with Leah, she is teaching us a FMQ pattern called Tree Roots.  I found this pattern difficult to do the first time out.  The part that was so hard for me was the backing up, the retracing your path that is full of curves and bends. 

I do like the look of the pattern, and enjoyed trying out one row in a variegated thread.  I will be adding this sample piece to my ring binder, for a quick reference in the future.  If I get a project made using this pattern, I will include it in this post.  Made a mug rug with some scrap leftover from my sample; never have too many mug rugs for my pottery coffee cups

Thank you Leah!  Really enjoying this weekly free~motion quilt along!  Congrats on the Craftsy Class~



  1. How fun to use variegated thread. Ya- the travel stitching was definitely the hardest part for me as well.

  2. What a nice thread! Looks gorgeous!
