I checked my Angela Walters book about Modern Free Motion Quilting and settled upon a clam shell pattern. There were two reasons I made that decision.
First, I have a draw pad on my iPad and I often practice this pattern. Thusly, I felt fairly familiar with it. That is not to say I did not have a huge learning curve!
Second, I wanted to get comfortable with loops so I can go into feathers eventually.
I found it takes a LOT of thread. I had not made one whole pass across the quilt and I needed to change bobbins already. I will have to get use to that.I like the way it looks. And the back will be nice.
I chose that dark black green batik and with the
black thread it will be subtle but good.
I am sure that by the second or third row I will be an expert!
I am listening to Fox News on my iPad. I am hoping that Carrie knows where the charging cord I gave her yesterday is located.
