Practice

Here is what I did for Friday Night Sew In..I need the practice. I have only quilted one quilt this way(on my frame) the rest were straight stitched so I need the practice and I discovered a better light! I just put two plain sheets from the thrift store together and some batting. I am using thread from previous quilts as well. Might as well get it used up.

What a great use of your FNSI time.

This is what I need to do. I've only done some straight line quilting, so I need to just put something together and just practice free-motion quilting.

It looks wonderful! The stitches are all even, very nice! I think mickey mouse ears or jigsaw shapes when I'm doing stipple/meander quilting, I find it helps me visualise what I want to achieve. You'll have that quilt done in no time! (remember to take breaks and excercise your neck and shoulders between)

When I first started machine quilting I practiced on leftover muslim, using the sheets was a great idea,then they can be cut up for small table tops or Mug rugs with a outstanding boarder & binding!

Very nice meandering. Keep practicing--it only gets better.
