Diving Into the World of Free Motion Quilting

Sadly, I have not had much time for sewing lately. However, I did take the time for a lesson in how to use my quilting machine. I love the machine....it sews like a dream. What I learned at the class was how to do free-motion machine quilting. This is a really slick and quick way to quilt. I tried my hand at a wandering stitch. The only rule with this stitch is this: you start quilting and fill up your entire space with stitching...but you may never cross a line that you have already stitched. It was a bit of a challenge and I might add that I did cross my line a few times. But, all in all, I think it turned out OK and I am happy with my first little project. This is a carry all for sewing or crafting tools when travelling or going to class, etc.
