This is something I never do; practice Free Motion Quilting.
This morning, I prepped a few 6.5" scraps, oogled over Leah Day's free-motion-quilting project website, plugged in my Bernina stitch regulator (haven't used that in ages!!!!), and quilted away.
Something easy! I can handle this okay.
Half-way through this design, I was getting annoyed with the stitch regulator. I seemed "choppy-n-clunky," so I elected to turn it off for the final half (right side). I actually like the freedom of no regulator, or at least not this one. It almost felt like it was having difficulty "reading" the fabric; almost as if it didn't realize the fabric was moving.
This one seemed a bit more detailed, so the regulator came back on. Kinda regretting that though.....
Looking ahead a few hundred designs, this one stood out. Easy-peasy! And so cute!
I should have stopped while I was feeling good. Gahhhhhhh! I really loathe feathers!!!!! It's a good thing I ran out of thread mid-quilting. Blah.
