Skills I Wish I Had - Blog Challenge
...free motion quilting. The biggest challenge I have yet to conquer is definitely, free motion quilting either on a domestic machine or a longarm.
Hi everyone! I'm participating in a daily blog challenge for this month; today's topic is "Skills I Wish I Had." (Check out the link below to read the other blogs.) This one was really a no-brainer answer for me. I drool over skilled free motion quilts; the big Hoffman panel flowers and leaves is an absolute dream and I would love to tackle it but unfortunately my free motion skills look a lot like my preschool attempts at writing my name.
Even the picture above isn't me; it's a stock picture from Pfaff and the free motion foot that goes to my new machine. For many years I used a 40+ year old Kenmore that didn't have free motion capability, but not now. I have no excuse now. And while I realized it's just a matter of time an practice, it's easy to get discouraged to know how far I have to go before I can tackle that Hoffman flower panel.
Maybe I should put this a New Year's Resolution... Something worth considering.
