I haven't really done any free motion quilting. When I lived in India I had to use a darning foot and a darning plate on my Singer machine to free motion. Also, I used to use layers of muslin as my batting so it didn't lend itself well to free motion quilting.
I did try working with polyester batting and it was not too bad but I didn't do very much with is since I don't like polyester.
So my first attempt was this little wall hanging I made for my friend.
I guess it's not too bad all things considering. My lines are worse now on my practice piece!
And the second was this mug rug.
This one feels a lot more wobbly. I still used the Mug Rug though - on my desk at work.
Now I have a cool machine, open toe foot, quilting gloves, cotton batting ... so I really should have got to work on learning this skill a long time ago!
Anyway... I'm working through Leah Day's 2012 Free Motion Quilt Along videos. I hope it goes well.
I can already feel my wrists hurting though... do you have any tips on how to protect my wrists and back while I'm doing this?
