I had been staring at my new Janome all weekend, kinda feeling overwhelmed. I finally decided that it was time to just do it. I pulled out my notes from my Free Motion Quilting class with Elizabeth Hartman of Oh Franson and pulled out my class sample to practice a bit.
Then I found this vine mini that I recently made for a Craftsy class. Making pebbles has been my favorite design and I thought it appropriate to use on this mini.
This is my first project doing free motion quilting and I think that I did rather well. I worked on trying to vary the size of the pebbles. I am surprised at the texture and how the quilting made the applique pop out.
I have a stack of tops that need quilting, but I am not sure if I should practice small or just jump in and go large. I am the type of person to just jump in, so I have a feeling that I will be working on those tops next.
Linking today to WIP Wednesday.
