The next three shapes are on this next piece: grape leaves, a blobby shape and a wavy line with dots. Double hmm.
This sample has line fillers (decidedly wonky) and my albsolute fave - pebbles. I love stitching those pebbles!
Then Kim freaked me out by letting us try feathers (with some other shapes like the ginko leaves). Awful. I was pleased that I stitched my name, though!
This is my second feather and I think some of the curves are actually curved on this one so that has to be an improvement, right?
In about six weeks we have our second lesson, when we'll be stitching a single sampler piece. Now that will be scary. I'd better get practising - Kim recommends at least 10 minutes a day, but maybe I need a couple of hours instead! Any tips from experienced free-motion quilters will be gratefully received in the meantime...
