My free hand quilting is still quite crude, but I am sure with practice I will get better. I had the hardest time with the stippling and going around the applique. The walking foot was a breeze!
While I was there I found the most adorable stiching pattern. I plan on stitching it for a friends birthday, and then possibly turn it into a quilted cover for a 3 ring binder to create a prayer journal. I think she will love it! The picture isn't that great, but you get the idea. You can find the instructions to create a quilted binder cover at the Moda Bake Shop
