    My first FMQ on a table top

    I made this lovely table top for spring and tried some free motion on it not to much for my very first. My lines are a little squiggly but they improved some LOL! My made a vine like leaf around all the white and then in the flower petal I did a outline twice inside the petal.

    I'm a beginner yet too, and I can relate. Knowing it in the brain and doing it with the fabric & machine is totally different, isn't it? You're off to a great start.
