    Practice Piece - machine quilting by Suebee

    I am having such a blast. Not at all perfect but, Im a HAPPY CAMPER. Didnt take long at all. Started it last night (after work) finished up tonight. Used not so great fabric, Connecting Threads Essential Pro thread, and W&N batting. Quilted on my Babylock Quilters Choice Professional on New Joy Frame.

    Ahh, thank you so much. I think I may just bind it and hang it in my sewing room for reference, but then I thought I may make some bags.

    Thank you All so much for the encouraging words. Im going to make it a goal to practice some at least 3-4days per wk. I think if I do that (hopefully) we'll see a little more consistancy. I just couldnt believe how fast it went. Before I knew it, I was out of quilt sandwich, LOL. Happy Quilting everyone!

    LMBO!! I feel old sometimes, definitely not a pro sweet of you to say. Ive only been quilting for 5 years, but have quilted simpler designs (meander, stipples, STD, some curlies and swirlies. But this was new to me. I doodle alot on paper, I think that helps...does me anyhow. Thanks for the giggle. Sue

    You got the hang of it right off the bat-I'm still in the very rookie mode. Congratulations
