This was the back side of the quilt for a baby quilt I loved it, And this was the first time I tried it on a quilt.

This is great work. I'm going to try freehand soon. Wish me luck.

Good luck I tried it on a small sandwich that I made from the same material of the quilt before I started on the baby quilt.

Hi - I've also taken up free motion quilting with a regular size machine. I took both of Ann Peterson's Craftsy classes and learned so much. I love the process but at my age there's no way I'm going to invest in a long arm to do it. It's definitely - the more you do it the better you get. Keep up the good work.

good job as you tackle the free motion quilting.... practicing will help to get the timing and coordination down....

Thanks I was scared to try it on a quilt but I did, it isn't perfection , but it did look great for my first time. I loved the class.

good for you to charge in ... we have to start somewhere... and with each project, you will see improvement.... I always go back to my practice pieces to get warmed up each time.!

It was harder after I got it started I would forget which way to make the swirls LOL, when I would change to another spot because I had forgotten to keep it going in the correct way.
