Typically, when I do any machine quilting it's just the standard free motion meandering or stippling.
I find it easy and safe.
When I finished my most recent baby quilt top, I wanted to try something different - to break out of the machine quilting box I kept myself in.
I saw a tutorial somewhere online for free motion quilting in a simple flower design and it looked somewhat easy.
So, after a little practice, I just jumped right in and my first attempts turned out pretty good, but I kinda got sloppy as I went along and found it hard to see where to go to next to create the next flower.
And then I just drew a rough circle around those pennies with my erasable pen.
Back to the machine I go!!
