Did some playing tonight. I found these online

Patterns

And printed them out on newspaper print. I got a ream of this when I was in to paper piecing. Tears away great. Anyway I printed these and and taped them to a quilt sandwich with medical tape (the lightweight stuff that just peels off). And gave it a go. I was rather pleased with the results. I first tried it on the Janome and wasn't crazy about it, then tried on the Bernina, who didn't got get the spa treatment yesterday cos I'm just not ready to part with it for 2-3 weeks. And was very pleased. I know with more practice and skill on my part I will achieve the desire affects. I feel I have so much better control with the Bernina then the Janome. The tension was much better also. Wasn't happy with tension at all on the Janome. I'm trying to make it a point when I go to sew to practice FMQ even if only for 10 minutes. I've almost got the Splash top together. I'm going to do a blog posts with pictures this week. I just did a search on newsprint the right size to go through printer and couldn't really find it I can't remember where I got it. Some years back I got some very thin vellum in a pak from Carol Doak. It was great as it was see through. Office depot had it a little thicker which was workable. I may try it in this application

Thanks! Got it bookmarked.

So your Bernina you felt gave you better stitches? Good that you have some to choose from. I want to try some basic stomping pattern later - pebbles or ??

Love how we can find Free stuff on the internet!!

Can't wait to see how your practice goes. Good idea to just put it in your sewing time, little by little!

What a good idea! I love some of those patterns, and how much nicer than having to mark the fabric and hope it all comes out.

Honestly, you offer some great quilting ideas/tips/things to think about - as well as new sources for finding MORE FABRIC - all the time and I really appreciate your postings. As a newbie quilter, I'm learning a lot reading your posts. And this one is great - I'm going to try the patterns.

Thanks again.

I checkedyour link this morning. Wow, like many , thanks so much
for looking out for us quilters(I'm doing it for 2 yrs.on and off) but
you keep us always in the know,in embroidery links too.
I am going to try those patterns this afternoon to practice.
I don't know if anybody out there is as slow or bad as I am,but
stippling an any form is scary for me.
Thanks again.
