Road Trip Road Map

I began stippling practice on the Road Trip Strip quilt. First I stitched in the ditch, then swooshed and swirled...


There was some success...


And some places for improvement. I marked the most severe parts with painter's tape--my own "road map" to where I needed to rip.


Lots of ripping, some places more extreme than others...


I think this is the worst of it. Not bad for a beginner! Next time I shall s-l-o-w d-o-w-n. My desire to finish let the bad habits come flying to the surface.


Due next week. Shouldn't be a problem. For all the free-motion beginners, be encouraged! You're not the only one with hits and misses :-)
