Default Free Motion quilting and gaining confidence

Here are a few pictures of my free motion quilting, and I think I am finally getting comfortable after practicing with wavy lines and going different directions while stitching. Before I always had to stop and think about what direction should I sew, then I would get a messy point, lots of picking out stitches, now I find I'm not having to do much of that, as I gained more confidence after watching videos on McTavishing suggested by one of our Quilt shop owners. Thanks Lidia!free-motion-quilting-4.jpgfree-motion-quilting-2.jpgfree-motion-quilting-3.jpgfree-motion-5.jpg

your free motion work is looking good. The clamshells are really impressive to me. They are very round and even looking and I can't get that kind of a result without a ruler.
