    I didn't have the courage (or whatever you want to call it) to try FM on my own so I took a quilting class. I didn't how to set my machine. I got lucky the instructor had a machine same maker as mine. She was very helpful. :D

    I had fun free motioning. I don't know why I waited so long to try it. Well, one thing was I needed a machine that I could drop the dog feed on.

    I am hooked on free motion!

    This is a fun quilt to make. I will making other one of these. :D

    Thanks Everyone!

    Yes, I find free motion very LIBERATING!!!!!! and FUN!!!!!!!! :lol: Why did I wait so long. :? Silly me. I normally do not care for the rag quilts but this one I think is cool. Someone recently posted one made like this with hearts instead of circles. It has inspired me to do hearts on the next one like this. Her heart quilt is very pretty. It was the one with the black background.

    I have one more quilt I need to post that I made as a Christmas gift. I meandered on it. I found it hard to quilt in a bigger motion after quilting on this one so close but I did ok.

    Itís going to be hard to go back to quilting in the ditch when I need to.
    :D
