From my sewing machine!   I've been working on a mystery quilt that was graciously offered by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville,  an outstanding author, teacher, and quilter.   I put that aside to work on the January Free Motion Quilting Challenge being held by Sew Cal Gal

This is a year long challenge, each month a different FMQ (free motion quilting) expert will offer a tutorial with great tips and instructions for improving one's skills on quilting with your Home Sewing Machine.

The tutorial for January was given by Frances Moore and the theme was leaves.
Anywho, here is my first practice piece.    The photo was taken with my iPhone, so it might not be as clear as it could be-

 I tried the leaves and the leaves with the spirals - I still need a lot of practice!
