I've been having so much fun practicing my freemotion stitching this week. First I made up several fabric sandwiches. The next step was to practice the patterns I wanted to use on my quilts. After feeling comfortable with the stitching, I marked up 2 sandwiches resembling the final quilts. This allowed me to work out the pattern. With freemotion stitching it should be one continuous line. The first day my foot ached trying to keep the peddle on the machine at a constant pace. I had to take several breaks throughout the day, or should I say several days.
