Even though I've done quite a bit of machine quilting, it was still great to hear her take on various techniques and practices. I used my time in her class to focus on a few designs and motifs that I've not really done. It's always nice to just play without the pressure of a finished project.
I enjoyed doing some straight line quilting and definitely want to incorporate more of it in my projects. I also explored some free motion line quilting to be used as an all-over filler. I used my old test block for my Dutch Windmill pattern as a practice piece and turned it into a mini for my sewing room. It also happens to be one of the projects that I wanted to finish this quarter for the 2016 Finish Along.
One motif that I definitely want to try in the near future is this yummy triangle pattern that Christa showed us.

I have a charity top and a pulse top that I need to quilt this week. Maybe I'll try quilting something different and new to me.
