Free Motion Friday - Pebbles

Today was a hot one so we spent most of the day outside at a local splash park enjoying the sun. After my son went down for a short nap I did some furniture rearranging in the room that is being converted from a spare bedroom to a combination sewing room/office. By the time I got everything the way I wanted, it didn't leave me much time to practice my free motion quilting. Here's about 30 minutes worth of pebble practice. Man, is that hard to master! I just can't quite get a good balance between speed and movement. If I go slower, my circles and stitches are jagged and not very crisp. If I go faster, it's more comfortable for me, and my stitches are more consistent but I end up overlapping my circles and can't follow along the lines as well. I guess that's why they call it practice. :)  I'll definitely use this design in the future, but given my lack of experience I'd be sure to use thread the same color as my fabric so my rookie mistakes won't be as obvious.
