In my first free motion quilt class (circa 2001), I remember the instructor telling us that when we’d practiced for 100 hours, free motion quilting would start to feel more natural.
In her book, The Creative Habit, Twyla Tharp contends that it takes 1000 hours to get good at any skill.
I don’t know if it’s 100, 1000, 0r 10,000 hours…
But I DO know this:
IF YOU PRACTICE, YOU WILL GET BETTER!
YOU can do this!

PS..Both quilts were stitched on a domestic sewing machine: Bernina 150. The Spiral Flower Quilt is stitched with Aurifil 50 wt cotton in both the top and bobbin. The Poinsettia quilt was stitched with Sulky Rayon thread on top and Aurifil cotton in the bobbin on Robert Kaufman Kona fabric with Warm and Natural cotton batting.
