Default First try

I just made a practice sandwich. To try free motion quilting on. This is my first try ever! So it's not to good, I do think I did pretty well for my very first attempt though.

Great job! It gets easier and pretty soon you wont even have to think about it and can just have fun! My first attempts were awful... you are a natural!

Good job! Looks like you have figured out how to travel around the quilt without getting "stuck"!

I only wish my first attempt at FMQ looked as good as this! Some days I still wish my attempt at FMQ looked as good as this. LOL. Great job
