Tiles

Came home from hand embroidery course tonight and went straight to my machine and did the Tiles FMQ.  I had real trouble keeping straight and even!  I actually dropped my feed dogs as I found it easier to control the fabric, but I still couldn't get an even stitch.....I know, practice, practice!  I had to keep turning the fabric as I still couldn't stitch backwards as I couldn't see behind the needle.

Here it is............

Quite like back!  
..........'til the next time.

  3. This is so neat!! Proper tiles! Seeing behind the needle would make things so much easier, it is really hard. Practice for me too!
