What materials did you use? These practice blocks are simply 12" muslin squares and cotton batting. I didn't want to be distracted by any print on the fabric - this was just to practice my free motion quilting.

Looks great Pamelon! I'm just making my own quilt sandwiches to practice some of these today as well! I'm learning a lot from this class! I hope I can get mine to look as nice as yours! Thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks for the kind words - I appreciate it. I always keep a stash of muslin/batting sandwiches around. Whenever I start on a quilt, I practice first on the 'throw-away' first. At least on one, to get myself into the rhythm of FMQ again.

These samples are wonderful Pamelon... I am fmq jealous of your amazing quilting. I have just starting using my darning foot this morning and have put up my attempt... I think this is the most difficult part of this whole process. I really hope I come to class this as 'fun' too. Thanks for your inspiration:)

You know the old joke - 'How do you get to Carnegie Hall?' - 'Practice, practice, practice!' - I've done a LOT of that in the past couple of years and Im only now beginning to feel comfortable. Working on practice pieces made of muslin and batting helped me too. No worries if I messed up - it didn't wreck a quilt! Have fun!
