When I first started FMQ, all I did was meander. Then I found that what helped me have more control was to practice by quilting stenciled designs- use a stencil to draw a design on fabric, and then quilt it. I still use stencils sometimes, but I am confident enough, and would rather, do my own designs.
I copied this design from a potato chip package!
this one's called meandering bees
these are two designs I got from Leah Day- her website is called Day Style Designs- I recommend watching her videos on FMQ
