    Thanks for the tip. Your free motion quilting looks great!! Do you also wear the quilting gloves with the little rubbery dots on them? I find this helps me have more control of the fabric. Now if I could just get all my stitches to be the same length..... :lol:

    Cecelia,

    That's beautiful quilting. I love the heart design. You give me hope that with practice I may be able to get the hang of it.

    Mamagus, your quilt looks like mine. I am still in the practice-practice-practice stage in quilting. I agree with all: it is very nice looking!

    CissyQuilts, your quilt is most inspiring! I have been exercising my free motion quilting as well but I guess that practice does improve our confidence together with our assurance on the machine. My motifs are so near one from the other, it nearly look like parallel stitches, even if I use surgical gloves.

    From your picture, I see that great movements are better, preferable to little puzzle-like motifs, depending on the quilt top motif of course, right?

    One thing that I would like to know is about thickness: in the past, I bought several bed covers but with time, they became used but I keep them in a closet, hoping that one day, I could use them for a quilt. Can I do that or is it better to use batting sold by the yard?
