I have been practicing my free motion quilting on some of my smaller quilt tops. Going from quilting with the walking foot to quilting with a closed toe free motion foot was a big step for me. It’s step that I ready for but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a scary step.
I’ve been on a roll this weekend and quilted and bound three small quilts. All were crib or small lap size. All are free motion quilted using a meandering curvy line.
I’m still working on making my movements slow and steady while I am quilting. I want my stitches are more regular. However, I did notice that I was getting more even on the last quilt I did.
What I’m really liking about this is that it seems to go so much faster than straight line stitching using the walking foot. And I am enjoying doing the quilting more too!
