this is awesome, thank you so much!
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Your braver than me..I haven't even dare attempt anything...Maybe someday.
I think you are terribly brave. I'm not sure I will ever attempt free motion quilting...maybe years from now when I have a lot more experience and confidence. Congrats and keep it up, with all the incouragement you get here you will be sailing though before you know it!
Hey, whatever it is worth, I think it looks good.
Most importantly, you took the dive! I know how cold that water can be. I am a self-admitted horrible FMQ, I cross lines, my stitches are intermittently super tight and too long, and my aspirations never match my execution. I don't care, just keep at it. I don't make quilts to show, (thought God knows I wish I could), I make them for friends and family. They all know everything I do is askew and l;ove me anyway! Sarah, you GO girl! By the way, I love your kitty avatar!

Just love your white and black cats in your avatar....
Please, what constitutes "good" and "bad" free motion quilting?
I agree with you. FMQ is difficult. I have been practicing but I have to agree with whoever wrote that it takes LOTS of practice. I remember seeing someone in Paducah FMQ and they took a pencil and paper and drew the design over and over again on paper before trying it on the machine. A lady at my church told me to check out Leah Day, she does have very good ideas about FMQ.
