As you can see, the machine won. Straight lines down the center of the leaves and curves on each side which ended up making a very nice unexpected continuous line pattern. The CD is what I used to mark the curves - don't worry, it's not music, just one of those advertising things we get in the mail from time to time. I also wrestled with myself about whether to try to do free motion quilting or mark my lines and ended up marking. I've still got the borders left to quilt.
Isn't this just the cutest thing? My friend, Pat, loaned me two Elizabeth Zimmerman knitting books because I was interested in a baby sweater pattern. I found this STAR instead and couldn't stand it until I gave it a try! Stars will look nice embellishing some of the knit hats I've been making.
