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.
