I found a cool tutorial on how to make a ball on the Grand Revival Blog.  They look like little mini beach balls - great for scraps.

I am trying to learn to free motion quilt and everyone's advice is just to keep practicing.  I feel bad wasting my practice pieces but you can only use so many pot holders.  I found this great tutorial on making a quilted bib on Crazy Mom Quilt's blog.  It is the perfect thing to use the practice patches for.

thank you for the tutorial! I am new to machine quilting and never heard of basting spray. I think this will solve my problem of the backing shifting around while I'm trying to quilt it....  I love your bib and ball!

Thanks for the comments. I actually have never tried spray basting - I'm afraid I'd end up with a sticky needle.  I always just tape down the backing and then use safety pins to "baste" the batting and top to the back.
