I did a lot of practice on my dry-erase board:
Using this is supposed to build my 'muscle memory' and help me follow the design when I move to the machine.
I concentrate on staying calm, moving my hands at an even speed, and slowing the machine at critical moments.
This is hard! I have a feeling this is not a design you will be seeing on any of my quilts. The best thing I can say about my work is that the stitches stayed pretty even. I will keep working at it.
