    FMQ with a Plant Caddy

    I'm fairly new at quilting and very new at FMQ. Halfway through my second quilt, I had an idea! I decided I could use a plant caddy to "rest" my quilt on while I did the free motion quilting. Off I went to buy one ($7) and it worked! I finished my little quilt with much better results and a lot less stress! Then after I finished it, I thought, "Maybe someone else would like this." So I did a very short clip and in it, I "pretend" free motion quilted that same quilt to show you how the plant caddy works. Hope someone can use this idea!

        That is a very clever idea! I think it will even help with straight stitch quilting. Put this on my shopping list. Thank you for sharing!

              What a great idea. I think I may have to pick one up this week as I have 4 quilt tops I "plan" to try to get quilted this weekend.

                What a great idea. The little bit of lift keeps it about the same height as the machine. The best part of this video is your daughter watching (and maybe wondering)! Thanks!
