    Thanks to everyone who offered their suggestions and links on how to free motion quilt! I finally got the nerve to try it and love the results. I only used a meandering pattern but plan on trying again and fine tuning my skills. I hope the pictures show the quilting details!

    Beautiful job!! How long did you practice before you took the big jump? I have the hardest time getting the tension right. Thanks for the inspiration :)

    I have to admit, I practiced for about an hour or two - I have many placemat sized practice quilts, which I cut and placed between my pots! Luckily I had no problems with the tension. Thank you.

    Very pretty! It's hard getting the nerve up at first, but you'll be a pro in no time. You'll be looking for more challenging designs with every new quilt.
