Heart Pillow

Practicing my free motion swirls. Happy with the way they came out. Halfway through decided it would be a good idea to do smaller swirls closer to the appliqué and bigger ones further out. Think this works quite well.
Made this into a pillow to be given to a lovely young lady.

My first attempt at July challenge.
A bit more detail

I really struggled to get my lines straight on this so tried something a little different.

Did some squiggly lines instead

Practice Piece 1

Practice Piece
I first did a couple of practice pieces before I went ahead and did the Real Thing.
These worked out great.
I use them to put pot plants so they dont leave watermarks on the table. 

I am so pleased with the way this came out. 

The real thing
I can see a definate improvement.

First time Blogging and trying to figure out what all the buttons do.
My philosophy on computers is try hitting as many different button until it works.
