Quilting flowers and leaves

I've started quilting on a second Healing Garden quilt this morning and have decided to try an all over design of flowers and leaves and swirls. All I've quilted on big quilts has been a meandering stipple and straight lines, so this is new to me. I've done extensive designs on small 8x10 pieces, but not a large quilt. It's hard to move that much fabric around smoothly and as I want to!

I'm working on keeping those stitches more uniform size... and other than that it's just fun to go totally free-style!

Oh this is beautiful! I can't imagine trying to freestyle quilt this with all of that fabric in the machine, wow. You are one talented girl! I love your fabrics. Thank you for visting and for your thoughtful comments always. I wish Ellie could play with your Jack Pack. xo Kathy

For me, free motion quilting is so difficult! But you do such beautiful work drawing and sewing words, that this design will turn out perfect as well.

Leaves are one of my all time favorite things!

You're using your little machine, not a longarm? That's much harder.

Hi Cat! That looks amazing! One thing I have tried is this product:
