A few days ago, I made some fun blocks to use for practicing quilting. I have used sashing between them and at the top of each row of three blocks. I am layering and backing them as I get ready to quilt each section. Then the sections will be joined into a quilt.
After a fun day with my brother and his family enjoying a cookout, I came home and took a nap. But then I got up and did this:
"The Essentials of Free Motion Quilting" on Craftsy.

I have to say that I am finding the designs that are supposed to be "easier" to be more difficult for me. I know that I just need to practice them more and they will become easier for me to control. However, this is going to be either a lap quilt or a bed quilt, so it will be quilted - and "done is better than perfect." I have four more sections to quilt - each section will be done after completing that lesson. This should really keep me on track with this quilt. That said, if I enlarge it to bed size, I will have to either do big borders or make more blocks. I just have to keep that in mind and not allow it to derail my progress. Ha ha....I don't want this one to become a UFO.
