    Since it's got so many straight lines I'd do a swirling pattern. Lot's of control practice in swirls.

    I would try something new to practice on. Maybe some little dogs and cats or bones or foot prints. Very cute.

    I think the bones would be a cute idea.

    I like the bones idea the best. Or you could outline the letters & the dog prints and then do a meandering stipple around them. That way if you use a high loft batting then the letters & the dog prints will look really puffy. Then I'd SID on the border. By the way it's a very cute quilt.

    I decided, or I guess I should say that my hands just took control, and I ended up with a meandering mess with several little fish here and there for the cat hanging. My brain and hands are not working together very well with free motion. Should have a contest of "how many fish do you see?"

    Today I'll give the dog quilt a try with bones.

    I tried to send a reply & must have done something wrong. Hope this time works and hope that I don't duplicate my reply. Anyway, it looks great. I see several fish. You're too hard on yourself. Take a look at that picture again, because you've done a good job at FMQ.
