Practice, Practice, and More Practice
The free motion quilting thing takes a lot of practice. I bought a bolt today of muslin to make little sandwiches to practice. I think I’m going to make enough for a week and try to get 30 minutes a day of practice done. While that may sound like a lot, it goes way to fast once I sit down at the machine.
I think the practice is well worth it. Especially since I enjoy it and really love how the free motion quilting turned out on my sampler. It think I got the flowers right down. I want to work more with the interesting spirals next.
