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.
