Just meandering around


The past few days I've been doing something I've had in mind for a long time ... practicing my free motion quilting. With the exception of a few spots so far so good. But why is it when I get to a fabric that the quilting will stand out I do my worst, I have free motion anxiety and the only rememdy is more practice!

You can't get better unless you just do it. I don't strive for perfection in my machine quilting...just doing the best to sastify myself. Can't wait to see the whole project.

My very first comment from Mary at Quilt Hollow was a friendly finger wagging in my face telling me to practice, practice, practice. Good advice! If only I would heed it more often!!

Exactly right...practice!! It is like writing your name...didn't you have to write that over and over before you finally got it? :-)

Looks fine to me. In our quilt group, we say if you can't see it from 30 yards on a galloping horse it's fine! At least you did it, right?

love the dotty fabrics Lynn. I'm so bad at twirly quilting so don't do it often when I know I should.

That's so like parking the car - you can do it perfectly until someone's watching!

I love free motion & since the Bernina has a stitch regulator, that helps me even more! Happy weekend from Tokyo!

Oh exactly. I think I made 50 potholders before I freemotioned my first quilt. I want to throw away my first projects but I don't. It helps me remember where I was at one point. Good for you, nice job.
