I finished this New York Beauty Circle of Flying Geese last night. I'm so pleased with the result. I was determined to practice a bit of my free motion skills on the machine with this piece, which I find fun but yet still intimidating. I think I just need to practice, which is hard to do when I'm loading quilts for clients everyday. I've decided to reserve the machine one day a week just for working on my own quilts so that I can get a bit of time to practice. I think the key to getting a handle on the free motion quilting is to learn a few quilting designs that are easy and that you are comfortable with and then gradually add from there.
