Being brave with free motion quilting

I'm finally trying some free motion quilting other than stippling. I've been meaning to give this a go for ages but have been petrified of stuffing up my quilts. 


I'm actually really enjoying it (although I'm  almost chewing my lip off as I concentrate.) There's lots of mistakes but I love the overall effect!


I'm trying a different design in each strip. 

 
In a couple of weeks I will be attending a free motion quilting class with Rachelle Denneny and I can't wait. Rachelle is a quilting goddess!

I will also be teaching my first quilting class in July at Quilt Encounter in Adelaide, which is really exciting and a bit frightening at the same time! I'm sure it will be lots of fun :)
