|a few trial runs|
Yesterday, while browsing the Internet for free-motion quilting inspiration, I stumbled across The Free-Motion Quilting Project. It's a pretty awesome website with hundreds of free-motion designs with accompanying photos and how-to videos. Fabulous!
I tried out a few designs, including this one (far left and middle) and this one (far right). I'm working on expanding the designs to be bigger, since I've decided I am not too fond of the texture that dense quilting creates. I also practice the designs on paper in addition to fabric, which I find helpful.
