Nicely done. I really like the change in scale you've shown here. Can't wait to see your quilts if these are your practice!

I've posted the quilt under projects but I haven't done the binding yet, so no closeups of the stitching yet. I only used swirls.

I am impressed, especially for a first try. Great looking....I think I may try it next.

Your work is so encouraging to me. I am a novice quilter, my first being this BOM quilt which I am still working. I am hopeful that I can learn some free motion quilting from the craftsy site too.

Ohhh, I really like what you did here. I like the lighter colored thread that isn't the same color as the fabric. I haven't had the guts to try that yet, but I am encouraged at how well that looks.

It's just a swatch, but I like it so mucg

It's just a trial block, and I wish I could work it into a quilt. Maybe if I save all my trial blocks I can sew them together?

I love your swirls and circles. I say just do it on a quilt. I stepped out of my comfort zone plenty of times this year. I just wrapped five of my quilts out of the 11 that I made this year. I wish I had more, because I needed more for presents. But I guess I am happy with stepping out there and learning how to do these designs. I watched Leah Days class on Craftsy and just put it into a quilt that I was finishing for my grandaughter. I sure hope she loves it. I had a problem with the circles like you did though. I guess I did not breath and my muscles really hurt bad. did this happen to you?
