I am linking up with some lovely people and Cindy over at Fluffy Sheep Quilting where we are all learning this technique together. There are no ties just join in when you wish using the helpful video tutorials, lots of practice from Friday to Friday, then bravely blog your efforts and link up on the following Friday!!!
So here are mine .................
It was my one and only attempt I had time for so please be gentle with me!
Please ignore the brown thread at the back, it was a scrap piece of fabric I used. Now I actually really enjoyed this! I didn't expect to but I loved the freedom. It certainly looks nothing like it should but hey ho it was fun.
A few things I noticed to point out -
- My stitching looks better on the front than the back. On the longer stitches on the front you can really see how off the tension appears at the back.
- It is hard to maintain consistent stitch length and speed!
- I kept forgetting this was FREE MOTION and not a set stitch. I also kept forgetting to put my darning foot down!
How did everyone else get on? I am linking up with Cindy's blog and off to have a look at some other efforts which will all be way better than mine, but at least I had fun! Looking forward to trying the next tutorial.
