Now I am retired I have time to put into my quilting. I really want to learn free motion quilting. I have read the books, started to practice, checked the videos online and now have signed up for a course! The piece of advice I come across the most is...practice,practice,practice. I'm willing to put in the time but would like to know from those of you who have been on this path how long did it take you before you felt competent at free motion quilting and in-control of your work. Sometimes my work looks brilliant (well not bad) but most the the time it's a disaster. Is it going to take weeks, months or years before I can FMQ with confidence?
