Practicing machine quilting

I have been told, over and over, that the best way to improve machine quilting skills is to practice, practice, practice.

So I became a little adventuresome and worked on a table topper, adding a little more than straight lines.


 I'm showing the back of the quilt as the stitching doesn't show so well on the center.
 But it's really the first time I've machine quilted with so many arches.

Goodness - how did you do that so well!!!! I've tried it and just can't get the hang of it. Practice might make it better, but I might lose my mind in the process, lol. Beautiful job, hon!
