The Quilting

Something like these fabrics, placed where you can see them while stitching, help train your eye. 
Let's talk a little bit about machine quilting designs. I prefer machine quilting designs done without a pattern, stencil, or template. It's a style that is personal to each individual, much like handwriting. No matter, training the eye, mind and hand to work together in order to coordinate your muscles to express and control your own personal style takes practice. You see, you must synchronize the speed of the machine with the speed in which you are moving the quilt under the presser foot to achieve a good visual.

Practice, Practice, and more Practice will improve your ability to master machine quilting designs whether it is free-motion quilting, continuous line quilting or hand quilting.
