I really missed having arrows on the pattern to indicate the order of quilting, so I looked at some YouTube videos and searched for other similar motifs to see how to move from one area to the next. Quite frankly, I didn't find much help. The hardest part was moving from one corner to the next.
Finally I gave up on the corner motifs and concentrated on the feather circle. Better. Not perfect, but better.
But after nine months of challenges, I am much more comfortable free motion quilting; my stitches are getting more consistent, lines are getting smoother. And I have learned that frequent practice is important.
Tomorrow is Straighten Up the Sewing Room Day. And after that, more FMQ!
Thank you Paula Reid. And thank you, SewCalGal!
