Free Motion Challenge - Day 1

The very first thing I'd like to really feel comfortable with is do make larger wonky feathers. I have a spiral table runner that I would like to have ready for a show and tell at our final guild night of the year. That is Tuesday, May 18th.

As you can see, I've started on my practicing. I got lost on the right had side of the feather. I do like the idea of echoing, but I have to learn how to travel from one feather to the other.

Tomorrow I will work on a larger piece of fabric and practice the travelling. I also like to practice my quilt writing daily as well.

I would say by Thursday, I'll be comfortable to practice the wonky feathers on a larger full size scrappy table runner. If that comes out good, I'll do it on my spiral table runner over the weekend.

Can't wait to see the completed spiral table runner. I can see your machine quilting is going to be mastered very soon. Looks like the Juki has found a good home. Lucy
