Free Motion 101

Nine hours at the machine this weekend and I am sort of mastering 'free motion quilting ' with my new darning foot that I picked up on Saturday. I am quilting a purple, black and skull and cross bones quilt of H's bed and he is itching for it to be finished. I am also learing the hard way the importance of corrrect measuring and cutting as the top piece of my quilt is very wonky - I am sure there is lesson to be learnt about trying to make things too quickly!!. But the swurly, curvy quilting does make it look lovely and I am sure that even with a few wonky bits H will still be happy.
