Free Motion Valentine - Practice, Practice, Practice

Happy Valentine's Day!


I feel so out of practice with free motion quilting, I took this opportunity to make a little Valentine pot holder with lots of stitching.



I used red thread to really practice.  The mistakes really show, but that is what this exercise was about for me.  PRACTICE.  

I just received two charm packs of Kiss Kiss! by Moda Fabrics and I wanted to make something.  A pot holder is always a fun way to use charms.


Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote for
It did VERY well in the popular vote.  
In fact, it looks like it might have won and I couldn't be more excited.

It's been a fantastic week for me
and a 
Very Happy Valentine's Day.

Hope your week has been the same!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I agree with you. When I taught everyone wanted to do as good as me and I would have to remind them I was doing stained glass for over 30 years and they just had to practice to get better.
