This month’s challenge was from Sarah Vedeler, and as you can see, involved swirls. The squares to the left are 1″, and the right are 2″. The trouble I had with this was going fast enough that I had a smooth line, but not so fast that I was out of control. You can see I have a couple really good ones, and issues with tension and stitch length are much better than they were. I just used regular sewing thread so that it would be easier to see, but I am going to try it again with a fine Aurifil. The only colour I have on hand is white, and I thought it might be difficult to see on the white background.
I will keep practicing on this, since I love swirls and can think of many uses for this. Thanks SewCalGal for organizing the 2012 Free Motion Quilting Challenge!
