What materials did you use? batik layer cake, stencils, Isacord thread

What are you most proud of? I mostly could follow my stencil lines even though I just lost it every now & then. My circles have definitely improved. I might actually be able to do pebbling.

Love those batiks and your quilting rocks!!!

Thanks so much, Jean! I wasn't totally thrilled with the on sale batiks in this layer cake but they got me to the quilting practice which I really need.

Hey what a great idea - use on sale fabrics!! I've been wondering what to use for practice when I get to FMQ.

Awesome job!

Thanks, Pieceful1! Got to keep trying the FMQ if I'm ever going to get even partially competent at it.

AWWW Darns, Ithink you are highly competent! I Love your stuff!

Fantastic job - I am really looking forward to the end of the month when I got for a free motion lesson - maybe one day I will be able to do what you are - yours looks tremendous. What sort of foot did you use - a darning or a special one for free motion?

When I took Machine Quilting (Wendy Butler Berns) and Beyond Basic Machine Quilting (Ann Petersen) classes, I was using the Bernina Stitch Regulator on my Bernina 430. I kind of got the feel for how the machine should sound when moving the quilt around. I have since been using the #9 darning foot as the visibility is better with this foot.

Thanks Darns - I haven't got a number 9 for my bernina but a #29 which says it is a quilting foot - it is like a a darning foot but much bigger whole. Thank you for answering my question Darns.

Looking good Darns! Looks a little big for Wallace tho, don't tell me this one is not for him LOL?

Thanks, Pam, actually this one went to my brother - probably his dog will be sleeping on it!

Looks great to me! I think you've got it!
