    these are a few cheater panels that I used to learn and practice free motion quilting. They aren't perfect but I am giving them away as gifts anyway!

    used metallic thread on this one

    Oh well done - they look good! I read somewhere when I first started FMQ to practice on cheater panels, which I did, and it does help lots. It really helps you learning to move around instead of the feed dogs guiding.

    From here they look great!
    I love free motion quilting - although I did just get a pcq to go on my quilting frame. I figure I'll quilt like the pros first then learn along the way to free motion lol. At least then I won't get too discouraged right away.(I know I would and then just not use my mid arm)
