You are up to the challenge !

My problem comes when I get that big ol' quilt all wadded up under the machine !

Did they encourage you to wear the gloves that keep your hands from slipping. Those gloves really helped me, even just on the straight line quilting that I just did.

Thanks for the tip. I'll start small for now! I bought and used some nice clean gloves from the first try...I do not know that it is hard without them :o

Good for you. You look like you are doing just fine. I took a class a few years back and really should take another. It just takes practice.

I am so impressed!! It's beautiful. Now you need to give us all a lesson.

Your samples look great! I second the need for gloves. I've tried a few different kinds and I think I like Fons and Porter best.

Remember, when you're actually quilting freehand like that, the fabric will be busy with color and little bobbles wont show.

Thanks for all the encouragement and support! I did get gloves for the class and maybe that helped :)
