The picture to the left is my first practice attempt. More practice needed! Yet I am inspired! I really focused on making my machine hum and purr!
Background music helped me to stay in rhythm. My favorite was listening to Shamrock and Thistle. Try it! You will absolutely find the Irish music perfect for when free motion quilting. Check some of the line ups at NPR Online Radio.
Time to get serious by making a drawing that will work with my fabric size. If you have been following me you know that I have been making each monthly sample into a wall hanging.
I love the idea of filling in around the main design, though my drawing doesn't reflect but one fill in style my finished piece included many more.
Being a novice I was being brave to use color thread that shows all the oops! Maybe I will learn from them.
Cindy Needham thank you so much for giving of your time! I had so much fun making this piece and using your ideas.
