Free Motion Quilting

My back, arms, and hands hurt, but the free motion quilting class at the Mesquite Bean Fabric shop was well worth it.
Betty Siegel was the instructor. She is a retired teacher, which really helps, because she knew exactly how to model, explain, encourage, and praise.
It was very frustrating for me, since I do not have the patience it takes to be successful.
I will need to keep practicing.
Betty did help me figure out the thread tension problem I was having with my machine.
Another plus for today was that another student in the class just happened to be a former high school classmate of mine! Gloria was always the happy and joking person in school, and she is still the same.
It was so much fun catching up.

We worked on 18 inch blocks.
This blue square showed a small improvement.
The white square was supposed to be a loop-de-loop plus heart!
I won’t show you the rest of my blocks because they are awful.
More awful than the ones I posted.

But, I had fun.
That’s all that matters.
