Free - Motion Quilting

My first free motion quilting!!!
After seeing zila post with free motion quilting, I decided to try it on my own. Already bought my darning foot long time ago:)) but never had chance to use it until last night.

It took me about 3 hours to complete this first free motion quilting for 14"x14" mini quilt.I'm truly excited!!! with the outcome and already thinking about quilting up a baby quilt for a gift :)




Front panel , need more practice!!!








back panel, umm! a ton of practice !!!
