A little free motion practice

I am participating in the 2012 Free-Motion Challenge on SewCalGal's blog.  This is my version of the first challenge.
The task was to make leaves in a continuous pattern.  I used black thread to make the pattern stand out so that I could look at my stitch length.  My stitches are consistent but the quality of the leaves are marginal.  Had I done the leaves in a pale pink thread, I think they would have looked decent.  I free motion frequently but tend to do either a stipple or large meander.  I intentionally slowed my speed and concentrated on stitch length.  All in all, an "ok" practice.


  1. Job well done! Mine can be seen at Can't wait to get more time to practice!

  2. That looks really cool - well done! I have yet to do my attempt as my machine has decided to go on holiday and I am having problems with the tension! Hmmm...I hope I can do as good a job as you once I sort it out!

  3. Looks great!! It's harder than it loooks and sounds! I know!
